Le Martres Limousins has been carcase assessing for the past 24 years and now is producing some of the most powerful bulls in its history.

The changes in the cattle can readily be seen in the 2022 annual sale yearling bulls which have recorded an average Eye Muscle Area (EMA) +9 per cent greater than the previous drop of bulls.

Also, in this category, all bulls recorded an EMA greater than 100 sq. cm, whereas when Le Martres started Carcase assessing only 10 per cent of the draft of young bulls would achieve this assessment.

"In my opinion, the Le Martres Beef Limousin herd has "arrived" and offers the Australian Beef Industry cattle with Carcase packages equal to the best in the industry, hence l say the herd is "the best kept secret," stud master Leon Martin BAgSc (Hons) said.

Lot 3, Le Martres Rainman, is a star feature of the 2022 annual bull sale and is rated as the most powerful apricot bull Le Martres has offered for sale.

"On the black side, this year's line up of black Limousin bulls will be my best lineup ever offered and l believe it will be equal to any lineup of black Limousin bulls offered across Australia in 2022," Mr Martin said.

"In addition, on offer will be French Pure Poll and Blue Poll Limousin bulls. All bulls are NEG Carcase Assessed."

Le Martres 2022 Annual Bull Sale will be held on Friday March 4.

Jarobee-blood calves were a major feature at the 2022 January and February feature weaner sales in Barnawartha and Wangaratta.

"It really does make us proud to see so many Jarobee-blood calves featuring in the front lanes at these major sales," Jarobee Angus owner Jan Robinson said.

"These sales attracted some of the best cattle the region has on offer and to see so many Jarobee blood calves holding their own, gives us great satisfaction."

It is not only locally that Jarobee bulls are getting the job done, bulls have been sold into Queensland for more than 20 years.

Jarobee's annual autumn bull sale will be held on Friday March 18 at Jarobee selling complex Beechworth.

There will be 50 HBR bulls on offer. All bulls have passed the rigorous tests for structure and breeding soundness by Dr Joshua Berryman of Holbrook Vet Clinic.

Bulls have been vaccinated for vibriosis and pestivirus and all blood tested negative for Pestivirus.

They were also scanned and assessed for structure, temperament and fat scores by Jim Green.

On sale day, success is measured by clearance rate.

"We don't want any of our clients leaving our sale without a bull," Jarobee Angus owner Alan Robinson said.

"We want as many Jarobee blood bulls out in paddocks around Australia working because we know they will get the job done and that's encouraging for our business."
