The Warringa herd calves
in March and April. Cattle are
selected for their function and
productivity with particular em-
phasis placed on temperament,
moderate birth weight, milk,
growth and carcase.
All animals are Breedplan
recorded, with all traits re-
corded, including birth weight.
Ultrasound scanning for eye
muscle area, fat and intramus-
cular fat (IMF) is conducted

Warringa have three of his
sons for sale at their Beef Week
field day in 2017 and believe
they have a lot to offer.
“They have tremendous
growth, carcase quality and
temperament together with ex-
cellent Breedplan figures,” Bill
The Warringa herd was
horned until 2009, when poll ge-
netics were introduced through
AI. Today the herd is a mixture
of horned and poll genetics.
Warringa purchased Days
Director H202 (P) in May 2014.
Director won grand champion
poll Hereford bull at the 2014
Hereford National Show and
sale at Wodonga.
Director is homozygous
polled. Warringa are look-
ing forward to his first heif-
ers, which are rising two years
old and due to calve in March
Warringa has many out-
standing yearling bull calves
sired by Director who will be
on display at the field day.
In 2012 Warringa purchased
the Australian semen and mar-
keting rights to Canadian ho-
mozygous polled sire BBSF
101N Wrangler 29W whose
progeny has topped significant
shows and sales in Canada.
His first Australian prog-
eny are very impressive.
The Warringa herd has held
MN3 status under the Bovine
Johnes Disease Market As-
surance Program and all their
horned cattle are dehorned. All
bulls are tested free from Pesti-
virus and fertility is guaranteed.
Warringa have five rising
two year old bulls for sale this

Bill and Minnie would like
to extend a warm invitation and
welcome to all visitors to attend
and inspect their cattle and en-
joy their hospitality on Friday,
January 27 from 9am to 6pm at
366 South Gippsland Highway,
on the Sale side of Yarram.
PASSIONATE about breeding quality
cattle, Yancowinna Angus owner Den-
nis Ginn and farm manager Rob Ewing
have worked together to constantly im-
prove their herd.
Their objective is to breed structurally sound,
high growth, high quality carcase animals.
“Our bulls have to be structurally sound, be-
cause their livelihood depends on it and we don’t
want structural problems flowing through to
progeny,” Mr Ginn said.
“We are looking for muscle definition in the
young sale bulls, but on the other hand we also
have to breed feminine females, because we have
a self replacing herd.”
Yancowinna’s herd will be available for in-
spection during Stock & Land Beef Week on Sat-
urday, January 28 from 9am to 6pm.
The open day provides a good opportunity for
people to see the whole herd, including cows with
calves at foot, as well as the stock which will be
available at upcoming on property sales.
Mr Ewing said while people are visiting the
farm, they can have a look around, see some
cows and calves and enjoy a sandwich or two for
“It will be nice to catch up with some of our
clients on the day and hopefully meet a few new
ones,” he said.
Yancowinna holds two sales during the
year, an autumn sale in March and a spring
sale in September.
Yancowinna offers 18 month old bulls at the
autumn sale and two year old bulls at the spring
sale, all of which are at working age.
The autumn sale will be held on farm at Yan-
cowinna at Cape Paterson, on Friday, March 10
“All of our bulls are scanned for carcase qual-
ity, including eye muscle area, marbling and fat
cover,” Mr Ginn said.
“The bulls are also independently assessed for
structure and temperament by leading beef consul-
tants Dick Whale and Liam Cardile and checked
by Korumburra veterinarian Rob Mitchell.
“We use two independent assessors, for just
that reason. We want an independent assessment.”
