Burenda Clermont Angus & Burenda Black Bull Sale 5th October 2017
– 45 Angus bulls and 25 Burenda Black bulls on offer. Very similar Angus sires as mentioned above with some new exciting breeding in the Brangus bulls. The AI sires CRC Specialist, Suhn’s Distinction, Braxton of Brinks, Morgan of Brinks, Omar of Brinks and Bright Side of Brinks have all had a positive impact with cleaner coats and more polled progeny that still possess the quality carcase traits of our Angus.
Spring 2016 AI of Burenda Females
Over 900 Angus & Brangus females have been successfully AI’d in the last 4 weeks by the Burenda Team to introduced and Burenda sires. The heifers were mated individually to provide us with an early born, lower birthweight calf that should grow and have improved carcase traits. The cows were mated to sires to maintain/improve all EBV traits with more emphasis on lifting carcase EMA and IMF. All this sounds great but we still need to focus on fertility, docility and structure as one without the other is not good.

We look forward to seeing you all next year.
