Back for the 14th year, the Ausmectin Southern Beef Week has long been recognised as a fantastic way for seedstock producers to showcase their genetics.
The event gives producers the opportunity to view, discuss and consider beef production, genetics and ideologies in a relaxed stress free, spend as long as you like scenario.
Some of the state’s leading seedstock operations open their doors to visitors as a preview to upcoming sale drafts or as a forum for private sales with a number of bulls, females and genetics available on the day.
Thirty-nine studs from across the eastern Riverina, the Central West and Southern Highlands and Tablelands, will open their gates during the week which runs from Monday July 30 to Sunday August 5.
Angus, Black Simmental, Brangus, Charolais, composite, Devon, Hereford, Murray Grey, Poll Hereford, Red Angus, Simmental, and Speckle Park are the 12 breeds that will be showed from a range of new and returning studs.
This provides producers with the opportunity to view, discuss and consider an array of breeds and bloodline options for their beef production systems.
Established in 2004, the Ausmectin Southern Beef Week gives studs the opportunity to open their gates in a low-stress environment to showcase their herd and give producers the chance to look at bulls or females for sale, without the pressure being felt to buy.
Long-time sponsor, Ausmectin, has been involved with the Southern Beef Week since its inception.
This year International Animal Health will be showcasing their Ausmectin cattle pour-on and the new Bioworma product scheduled for release on July 16.
International Animal Health representative, Shannon Lawlor, said the week allows their team to get out there and promote their cattle range, which was growing in interest.
“We aim to provide solutions to stud breeders to a range of animal health concerns,” Mr Lawlor said.
Through the Ausmectin Southern Beef Week, he said the IAH team can create client relationships to get the communication flowing to solve problems producers may be having on farm.
