2018 Spring AI
As usual leading up to Xmas in 2018 was very busy with the last of the bull sales and the start of the sale of new season bulls and the 1600 head of Burenda females to AI. A fixed time AI program was run over four weeks with the Angus & Brangus breeders. We were fortunate to recieve some rain in early October which set the breeders on a forward plain of nutrition for the program. Previous to this rain it had been particularly dry at "Dalby Downs" with over 35t of silage and hay ration put out each day for maintenance of the calving cows. This seemed costly at the time but with a successful AI progam completed with what appeared to be numerous cycling females then it was well worth it. This was followed up by our yearling bulls for a 6 - 8 week joining period including the AI program.
The breeders are all currently running on several agisment properties on the Western Downs in a commercial environment with nutritional challenges. These females are run on a commercial basis with set joining periods, set pregnancy testing dates, tight calving periods with the expectations to rare a calf and get back in calf every year. Empty females are sold along with surplus ptic breeders.
