MORE than 5000 bulls from 196 studs
representing 26 breeds will be on dis-
play during Stock and Land Beef Week
which runs from January 29 to February
6 throughout Victoria.
“We expect these studs will display 5000 bulls
and will sell them for $35 million during Beef Week
and at annual on-property bull sales during Febru-
ary and March,” Beef Week director Geoff Phillips
Of the 196 studs in Beef Week, 35 will conduct
on-property bull auctions during the busy autumn
bull selling season.
These annual sales have catalogued 2500 bulls
and these will all be on display for potential buyers
to inspect during Beef Week.
“The 161 studs in Beef Week that do not have on-
property sales will offer bulls during Beef Week and
will also have on display bulls catalogued for the big
multi-vendor national sales coming up at Wodonga
and Dubbo later in the year,” Mr Phillips said.
“We estimate another 2500 bulls will be cleared
by these 161 studs.”
Stock and Land Beef Week is the biggest event
of its type in Australia and showcases the nation’s
leading beef genetics, particularly in the British and
European breeds. Entry to properties is free.
The variety of breeds and genetics available in
WARRINGA Herefords will again par-
ticipate in Stock and Land Beef Week
and would like to invite you to attend
their property on Monday, February 5 to
inspect their cattle.
The Yarram stud will be open to the public from
9am to 6pm.
Warringa Herefords will have five rising two
year old bulls for sale priced from $5000.
All bulls are sired by Days Director H202 (P),
purchased at the 2014 Herefords National Show and
Sale at Wodonga after he was judged supreme cham-
pion poll Hereford bull.
Director is homozygous polled and has bred very
well producing progeny with magnificent quality of
carcase, length and depth of body and tremendous
capacity and 100+ per cent eye pigment.
Director is a trait leader for birth weight and
Stud principal Bill Kee said the impressive
group of young bulls have outstanding potential and
are arguably the best group of young sires ever bred
“They have low to moderate birth weight, good
growth, well above average milk, excellent scrotal
size, eye muscle area and carcase quality all sup-
ported by a good sets of estimated breeding values,”
Warringa recently introduced genomics into their
management and selection process, they DNA test
every animal with at least a SNP (LD), they also test
every animal for all known genetic conditions.
They also test where appropriate for homozy-
gous and heterozygous polledness.
These tests ensure the accuracy of all pedigrees
and that there are no genetic conditions within their
herd and to ensure their genomics are included in their
single step breedplan estimated breeding values.
Warringa is EU accredited, a member of Meat
and Livestock Australia and Livestock Production
Assurance program with a farm biosecurity plan
with a Johne’s beef assurance score of eight.
All bulls are tested for pestivirus and fertility
Warringa offer free delivery anywhere in Victoria.
“All of our cattle will be on display and we ex-
tend a warm welcome to all to attend our property at
366 South Gippsland Highway at Yarram to inspect
our cattle and enjoy our hospitality,” Bill said.

HAZEL Dell Simmentals was estab-
lished in 1989 at Almurta and 10 years
ago moved to Corinella.
As part of Stock and Land Beef Week, the stud’s
cattle can be inspected on Sunday, February 4 be-
tween 9am and 4pm at 1100 Kongwak Road, Inver-
loch alongside South Kolora Herefords.
The stud has owned some of the breed’s most
famous cows in Tusmore Nicole, Lothlorian Louise
and Piggottrange Lucy.
They have twice purchased the grand champion
bull at the national sale.
Twelve years ago, the stud decided to breed poll
Simmentals which was a big decision at the time but
one that has proved to be correct.
The stud runs its cattle under strict commercial
conditions and has sold females, bulls, semen and
embryos Australia wide and overseas.
Due to client demand seven years ago, Hazel
Dell purchased 70 black Simmental heifers from
Webb Black Simmentals and has been selling low
birth weight, easy calving black bulls for the past
We look forward to seeing you at our open day.
