Texas Angus achieves one of the most successful bloodline Sales ever on Auctionsplus

Texas Angus proved to be "The brand that weighs and pays" in the 2nd Annual Texas Angus client sale conducted by Bob Jamieson Agencies (BJA) on Auctions Plus Friday June 15 2012.

In a week that saw the Eastern Young Cattle Indicator fall to 373cents per kilogram, Texas Angus clients sold 1200 cattle for an EYCI equivalent of 400 cents per kilogram on farm. This figure included the average of all steers, heifers, and cows offered.
Gary Dick, General Manager of Auctionsplus described the Texas Angus Client Sale as being "one of the most successful single bloodline sales ever conducted on Auctionsplus of any breed."

2011 Holistic Beef Day

In late March 2011 Texas Angus opened its gates to 80 keen beef producers to see first hand the production side of it's operating business and how it is reducing its carbon footprint.

Principal Ben Mayne and his family wanted to share their knowledge of how they have implemented sustainable agricultural principles on their property “Doongara”.

“This was an excellent day for anyone beef producer wanting to hear about their industry at a grass roots level,” Mr Mayne said.

“We basically wanted to supply information that has worked at Doongara from the soils through to plants and animal health onto marketing and yard technologies,” Ben said.

Information topics covered on the day included:

  • Improving soil, plant and animal health with the use of natural mineral fertilisers (healthy soils, healthy plants, healthy cattle)
  • Establishment and use of tropical grasses,
  • Loss lick supplements and concentrates,
  • Performance recording,
  • Weighing and data collection
  • New innovative animal marketing options.
  • Utilising renewable energy at Texas Angus with the latest Solar tracking systems

All companies gave an informal presentation and had trade displays and attendees enjoyed delicious Texas Angus steak sandwiches.

The day had been such a success that participants and companies have requested another day next Autumn.
