Boonaroo Bull Sale

Boonaroo will offer a line of 95 Angus bulls, featuring soft, well muscled bulls with outstanding structure and docile temperament.  We have focused heavily on fat cover and muscling in our breeding programme, combining these two traits to produce cattle which can run at higher stocking rates without losing their ability to finish and be fertile.

At Boonaroo we believe this inherent do-ability is a critical factor in making beef production a profitable enterprise in these modern times.  Commercial reality sees all beef producers having to be able to produce more kg of beef per hectare in seasons with far more climatic variability than the past.  It is all very well to produce big animals with high growth rates, but if these animals can’t be finished off efficiently to the carcass standard required by the meat industry then they instantly impact on our profitability.  That lack of ability to finish also means those females with extremely low fat scores will struggle to join up early further impacting on profitability with empty cows and late calvers.

All bulls are structurally assessed, fertility tested and guaranteed for 3 years on a pro rata basis.  At Boonaroo all bulls are vaccinated in the Zoetis Star programme and are free of all known reproductive diseases.  Buyers can purchase with complete confidence that their bull will get the job done.

We urge you to try and get to either of our field days and see for yourselves that the type of cattle we are breeding at Boonaroo back up these ideals.

Please join us for our field days at “Clifton,” Hamilton, on Thursday 1st of February; and at at Boonaroo, Casterton Tuesday February 4th; and our Sale on Friday Feb 16th, 2018 at Boonaroo at 11am Vic time, inspections from 9am.
