SEVENTEEN top Hereford bulls from
across the North Island are now
grazing at a farm in Manawatu in
preparation for sale at the New Zealand
Beef Expo on May 14-15 at Manfeild Park,
The bulls arrived on Mike and Lorraine
Langtry's Awhea property outside of
Kimbolton, north of Feilding, on February
8 for three months grazing before sold at
the New Zealand Beef Expo on May 14-15
at Manfeild Park, Feilding.
In early March, the bull owners gath-
ered at Awhea Farm to view their cattle.
Group convenor Ke vin McDonald and
his wife Jane attended and talked about
the bulls and the NZ Hereford National
Sale at the Beef Expo.
Mrs McDonald said the bulls had been
transported to the Kimbolton property to
enable them to be treated the same way
prior to the expo.
"They're all run in one mob, and they're
farmed under commercial conditions,"
Hereford farmer Stuart Robbie of
Pahiatua said the cattle they were viewing
were an exceptional line of bulls.
"The Herefords have consolidated over
th e last few years and there have been
genetic improvements," Mr Robbie said.
Members of the group said this was the
best overall line of Impact and Tru-Test
Super Sires to be presented at expo so far.
Mr McDonald said the bulls in the pad-
dock had good temperaments because
they had come off all different properties
and settled into one quiet mob. "Good
temperament is a major bonus of the
The bulls were sourced from Northland,
Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki,
Gisborne, Wairarapa and Manawatu.
Mr McDonald said all Hereford bulls at
the expo would be on display to vendors
and potential purchasers at a bull walk
and parade on the Langtry's property on
May 14, at 10.30am.
The NZ Hereford Association's annual
general meeting is on May 15 and will
include presentations to the Herd of
Excellence winner and Gold and Platinum
Benc hmark Dam recipients.
Owners of these Herefords gathered at Mike and Lorraine
Langtry's farm near Kimbolton early this month to talk about
their cattle and their association.
