Tainui Group Holding’s annual Hangawera Station Hereford sale is set to go with over 180 pure-bred, vaccinated and tested bulls being auctioned on Monday 2nd October.
TGH’s Primary Industries Manager Mark Jackways says they expect a solid auction turnout, much like previous years, given strong market demand for quality bulls, as dairy herds re-stock after a tight couple of years.
“Bull demand is being driven by farmer confidence in increasing and maintaining herd numbers due to the positive Farmgate Milk Price environment, and underpinned by a consistently high works price for beef.”
The bulls available on auction day are the pick of the pack and have passed thorough testing to ensure they’re fertile, fit and ready to perform,” says Mr Jackways
All of the bulls available at the Hangawera Station auction are pure bred, undergo fertility testing, and are double vaccinated and tested for Bovine Viral Diarrhoea (BVD) and Enzootic Bovine Leukosis (EBL) prior to being put up for sale.
“We’ve been running this auction for the last ten years and have built our reputation by supplying a guaranteed animal, bred for temperament and easy to work with. Farmers know they can buy from us with confidence.”
TGH has engaged PGG Wrightson and Farmsource as agents for the sale, working with them to make sure that strong finance plans are available for buyers, similar to previous years.
“Those attending the sale can also take advantage of free delivery anywhere in the country on the Friday following the auction,” says Mr Jackways.
“There will also be catering during the sale and a coffee truck available for those who work up a thirst during bidding.”
The auction will be held at Hangawera Station, 398 Manual Rd, Tauhei, on Monday 2nd October, kicking off at 12.30pm.
