THE prospects for the success of the annual bull sales season in late June look very rosy indeed after the district’s Angus studs displayed this season’s rising two-year-old bulls this week in the Bull Walk. All the Angus studs from Wairoa to Tolaga Bay took part.

“It’s been a good grass growing season and the cattle show it. They expressed all their genetic potential,” said Neville Clark from EJ Gordon Livestock, who will auction many of this year’s sales.

“In the seven weeks between now and the sales they will round up and look bloody exceptional.” He said what was on show this week bodes well for a good sales season.

Hereford breeders Mokairau and Wilencote will showcase their R2 bulls next Wednesday from 11am-3pm.
