New Auction System At Choice Angus Annual Sale
Choice Angus will use the Helmsman auction system for the very first time at its annual sale this year. “We believe that yearling bulls, rather than two-year-olds, are a better purchasing option for the majority of our customers. They
carry the latest genetics, being younger they settle into their new environment easier and being lighter they are often a better choice for joining heifers,” said Tim Brazier.
The 2017 Choice Angus Inaugural Bull Sale will be held on Friday, 1st September at 1pm on the farm at “Inglewood” 128 Norah Creek Road, Molong. On sale will be 50 yearling bulls with the following bloodlines: Karoo D145 Generator G220, EF Complement 8088 USA, SAV Pioneer 7301, Braveheart of Stern, SAV Thunderbird 9061, Carabar Docklands D62, and Millah Murrah Doc F159.

70 Bulls, Cows And Calves At Coota Park Sale
The Coota Park Blue-E 2017 annual on-property production sale will be held on Tuesday, 5th September at 2pm at Woodstock, near Cowra. On offer this year are 50 bulls and 20 cows and calves. Coota Park Blue-E cattle are known for their hybrid vigour, efficient conversion of grass to meat, low methane and growth yield marbling efficiency.
Blue-E’s are a line of Angus x Shorthorn cattle that have been developed by Jon, Harvey and Barbara Wright of Coota Park, Woodstock, NSW.
The Blue-E concept was initially conceived by Jon after many years working as cattle manager at the Trangie Research Centre in NSW. The research considered the value of feed conversion to the beef industry. After seeing first-hand the enormous value in selecting for feed conversion, Jon returned to Coota Park and initiated the Blue-E cattle and built their own efficiency testing facility on farm.
