Charolais studs unite for joint bull sale: Photos

Southern NSW studs Challambi Charolais and Huon Charolais are combining for their first joint on property bull sale.

They will offer 32 bulls, aged 14 to 25 months, at Granite Hill, Jindera, through a helmsmen sale on Wednesday, September 27.

“Bringing the two studs together gives us a good line-up and variety of genetics in the sale for buyers,” Challambi Charolais, Tooma, principal Nigel Spink said.

Among Mr Spink’s offering, lot 18, a July 2016 homozygous polled bull with impressive numbers, is sure to attract buyers interest.

For David and Judy Gray, Huon Charolais Jindera, lot 28 – a compact April 2016 bull – looms as the best buy.

“Hosting an on-farm sale is a fairly big operation so we thought we’d combine it for the first couple of years to see how it goes,” Mr Gray said.

He said Charolais’ appeal was in their cross breeding performance to add muscle.

“Crossing over an Angus or shorthorn, any breed, you’re getting an extra 40 kilograms of beef in 12 months,” he said.
