GOLD Creek Simmentals in Te Karaka will showcase 30 growing two-year-old bulls at their third annual farm sale on Monday and stud master Tom Sanson is very proud of his line-up.
In addition to the bulls, there will be two genetic packages for sale and a characteristic “choice of heifers” lot.
The 2021 stud sale was a great success.
“This year’s event should be just as strong, if not stronger,” Mr. Sanson said.
“We are extremely proud of this year’s lineup, which we believe demonstrates everything we look for in our bulls and more.
“At Gold Creek, we’ve always said we want to breed cattle that challenge the status quo.
“We have bulls that tick all the boxes to thrive in commercial conditions in the highlands of the East Coast, while offering a unique composition, both genetically and phenotypically. We do just that and more.
“Consistency of type shines throughout this year’s catalog and, as always, structure and docility were at the forefront of breeding decisions and much of the criteria for selecting bulls for sale.”
Mr. Sanson said it was undoubtedly their best line-up to date.
“We can’t wait to see everyone there.”
The sale begins at 2 p.m. on Monday, with cattle inspection starting at noon.
“Lunch and refreshments will be available before the sale, then join us for a beer and delicious food.”
