Inaugural Bull and Female Sale - 2019
On the 4th May we will hold our inaugural sale at the Northern Rivers Livestock Exchange, Dargaville Road Casino, beginning at 10 am.
This sale has been 8 years in the planning. Offered will be 20 two year old bulls, along with 7 outstanding yearling bulls.
With the females we are offering 12 cows and calves, 23 cows, 11 yearling heifers and 9 weaner heifers.
Despite the horrific seasonal conditions all the cattle present in good condition. All the females have been pregnancy tested.
Carol and Mark look forward to saying hello on the 27th April where all cattle will be on display for inspection on property at Ghinni Ghi between 10am and 1pm, if not we will see you on 4th May.
Ghinni Ghi Angus Stud started with 6 foundation females and a Te Mania heifer from Kansas Angus stud Boggabri and a yearling bull Kansas Trojan, from the famous Annie female line.
Shortly after establishment Lawson’s stud Victoria provided nine recipients carrying embryos from their top cows mated to Dunoon Evident, Te-Mania Africa, Lawsons Invincible and Ayrvale Bartel.
In 2014 we purchased 14 females from Strathewen Victoria at their dispersal. We were the volume buyer of the dispersal.
These female lines have bred on marvellously whilst using the best available sires through AI and ET. We have concentrated on strong female lines that have excellent conformation, feet, fertility and longevity.
Our meat business saw us place more emphasis on carcase qualities.
In early 2018 we purchased 10 outstanding heifers from one of Australia’s leading studs. It is our firm belief that strong female lines with cows of impeccable structure, sound temperament and good doing ability provide the basis for similarly structured deep long bodied bulls that will work earlier and for much longer. We are very pleased with the maternal lines and their progress to date.
Whilst the stud’s breedplan figures are excellent, visual appraisal of non measured attributes remains an essential part of our selection process.
2018 sees us able to release stud heifers and cows along with commercial females at our Open Day on 1st July during Northern Beef Week.
