Rennylea SPRING bull sale to be held on Thursday August 30th 2018 at Ellerslie Park, Culcairn NSW
 
 
 

We have catalogued 164 bulls in three age groups. There are 39 M bulls born in the spring 2016, including sires we have used, which are noted. In the young bulls 104 are born in Autumn 2017 and the remaining spring 2017 rising 12 months old.

 Earlier this year, the Angus breed in Australia transitioned to the Single Step analysis. This combines the traditional phenotypes measured in Breedplan with the genotypes, measured by the i50K. We have carried out a comprehensive analysis with the CSIRO looking at the effect of the genotypes in increasing the accuracy of the Rennylea database. The great news is that the results are more accurate at a young age, giving you the commercial breeder and buyer, greater confidence in the estimated breeding values.

 At Beef Australia in Rockhamption in May we listened to a presentation from Prof Ben Hayes, geneticist from the University of Queensland. Ben made the point that the combination of phenotypes and genotypes through single step breeding values is taking us CLOSER TO THE TRUTH. We take great pride in the efforts of the whole Rennylea team to collect the data and provide you with the highest accuracy currently available on young bulls. 

 There are four Angus indicies for market suitability. The 164 bulls in this catalogue average in the top 5% for all markets. Note lot 63 is the highest EMA bull in the breed on the market at the moment (out of the highest EMA cow, Rennylea E176) and has exceptional performance and balance across all traits. If you wish to increase muscle in your herd, E176 has another 4 sons in the sale (lots 35, 64, 67, 100). The bulls average in the top 5% for IMF% and there are 9 bulls with an IMF% of 5.0 or greater.

We are also very pleased with the sons by Rennylea sires entered in the Angus Benchmarking Program. We have had 17 of the 299 sires tested to date and most have performed very well. The latest bull whose progeny have excelled is Rennylea H708, who topped the carcase IMF% and MSA index in cohort 5. There are 7 H708 sons in the sale, they are suitable for cows, with elite carcase, very sound structure, tight sheaths and docile. Other well represented Rennylea sires include calving ease sire G420 with 13 sons, H556 with 10 sons and K178 with 13 sons.

 There are many outstanding lots including lots  2, 3 4 5, 6, 11, 25, 26, 40, 58, 64, 84, 100, 105, 115, 134, 146.

There are 37 Herdbook registered bulls. Take particular note of lots 58 (standout of the yearling herdbook bulls), lot 60 (high performance by Booroomooka Bartel), lot 1 and lot 39 by HCPA Intensity.
