TO MAKE AN IMPACT, BE BOLD AND TAKE CALCULATED RISKS

You’ve got to give it a go!

If people want to make a difference with their cattle, then the bottom line is with traits such as Carcase Weight. By this I mean that 3-5% extra X 300kg carcase = $ profit simply from the extra weight. We are getting animals to kill at 58% to 60%, when the norm is still around 53%.

If the cattle kill early, this is the added bonus. We are breeding for fast growing cattle.

Add good marbling = good eating = top quality niche markets. It is coming, believe me!

We have to be aiming for good eating experiences and the firms are coming to recognise this. Marbling is universally seen as a major contributor to top flavoured tender beef.

We are delighted that many of our clients are now scanning their heifers and selecting for high IMF.

Of course your heifers still need to get in calf. Of course they need to calve easily and produce a good calf, but if you can build in the hidden carcase qualities as well, you will be an enormous leap ahead when it matters.

The future of Kakahu Angus is not based on rhetoric (the art of persuasive speaking or writing). We base our breeding on scientific facts. We are becoming heavily involved in progeny testing through Beef and Lamb to prove that global genetics can be substantiated under New Zealand conditions.

We have always bred for good performance in functional cattle. It is great to see this coming through internationally with bulls like Kakahu Mission and Lawsons 09104.

We run our stud here at Kakahu under commercial conditions. That way we have no favourites.

BULLS WE HAVE TO SELECT FROM FOR THE JUNE 2018 BULL SALE

“92% of the 120 bulls being brought up for the sale are in the top 20% – of which 112 are in the top 10% for API.

15 of the latter are in the top 1%.

What we are excited about is that we have managed to lower mature cow weights whilst increasing growth weights and substantially increasing carcase weights. These traits together = profitability and efficiency. IMF EBVs are steadily climbing. We are well above the New Zealand average for IMF and EMA. Look at the calving ease figures!”

Every bull represents added value for anyone’s breeding programme.
