2019 BULL SALE
Friday 5th July 1pm
Welcome to 2019 Inglebrae Farms bull sale. Due to the continued tough season we have decided to reduce the sale numbers and only present the cream of our crop! 28 of our very best bulls will be available for sale on-farm Friday 5th of July at 1pm. With the use of five superb reference sires, including 2 exciting new ones, I believe, this year there is a good variety within them to meet the needs of any herd. The bulls, all rising 2yrs range within 10 weeks of each other and like in the past these bulls show plenty of growth, softness and natural doing ability and run as one contemporary group.
Despite the tough period we still hold a full complement of breeders this has been reassuring to see the resilience of our 800 strong cow herd, both stud and commercial, I believe it’s due to the genetics we have built into them as the focus we have here at Inglebrae is not selecting on extremes but selecting more on modesty for on-farm efficiency and productivity while maintaining enough growth to get all our grass-fed progeny into the feedlot markets at 480kgs before eighteen months of age.
It’s been great to hear that some of our clients throughout the Northern Rivers and up into QLD have had some drought relieving rain, but our thoughts remain with the many clients, like ourselves here in Tenterfield, who remain under severe drought conditions. Some of who, being nearly out of water and some having to reduce breeder numbers drastically.
So, whether you require bulls this year or not or would just like a day off-farm from feeding please come and join us as we would love to catch up with you, either on the bull walk day Monday 24th June and or on sale day to keep up with new sire lines for the future of your herd. Lunch/refreshments supplied.

N6 has been a standout from a calf and a favourite of mine. He was used as a yearling in the stud lightly to cover the AI programme on the heifers. He boasts top 1% of breed for all calving ease, calving ease daughters and gestation length with low birth then turns around to be well above average for growth, scrotal and marble with good milk and positive fats. Complete package here carrying great structure, soft easy doing type with a great muscle pattern. Out of a tremendous young cow. At 22 months of age, raw data collection for 600 day N6 was the heaviest bull in the draft at 872kgs (note he has done that after being used as a yearling) scrotal of 42cm, EMA 124cm and IMF 6.7%. a tremendous prospect with versatility.
N11 a William of Stern son. A magnificent type with so much capacity, out of a slightly bigger cow and shows just a little bit more than his brother Lot 4 N18 . A great opportunity to secure genetics from NZ as there isn’t much of it in Australia. Simply a herd improver! He is 824kgs at 22 months
N19 first of the Hallmark L58 sons as Lot 6 and weighs 848kgs at 22 months. Going to be a herd improver that will breed females with so much length, softness and doing ability and steers that will grow. A good low birth for a big bull. Mother is one of our bigger framed cows and her only other son sold to Goondi Angus at Cambooya in 2017.
First of the Barnaby sons. A very high-volume bull with growth carcass and positive fats. Second heaviest, 856kgs, at 600 day raw data collection. Out of a big cow that preforms well and goes back to the Sara Park Angus genetics that we started with. Expect sale topping weaners from this fellow.
