Over 5000 bulls from 196 studs representing 26 breeds will be on display during Stock & Land Beef Week which runs from January 29 to February 6 throughout Victoria and the Riverina.
“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 February and March,”, according to 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. We estimate another 2500 bulls will be cleared by these 161 studs,” said Mr Phillips.
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.
Scott Bruton (Roly Park) will have on display both Beef and Australian Shorthorns (Day 6), to be run in conjunction with Waterford Charolais at 216 Mt Macedon Road, Macedon.
