ADVERTISING FEATURE

The Baker family’s Woonallee Simmental program offers “the best in Simmental, whatever the requirement”.

Whether that be commercial productivity, independent show assessment, steer carcase analysis, feedlot trials or more, they have put their genetics through these tests and come through with flying colours.

Elders agent and auctioneer Ben Finch said: “Quality sells and Woonallee provides bulls that can greatly assist the beef industry to grow and prosper.

“The Bakers are switched-on positive breeders looking optimistically towards a bright future and their progress has continued each and every year across any judgmental criteria.”

The offering at the Baker family’s 2019 bull sale is absolutely outstanding, plus their 4th Elite Ladies Female Sale will be staged from 4pm on Wednesday, February 6 (60 females will be offered).

This will comprise 20 traditional and Red Simmentals, 40 Blacks, plus three PTIC recipient lots and seven semen packages.

On Thursday, February 7 from 1pm, Woonallee will offer 110 highest-quality bulls (70 Blacks, both spring and autumn drops and including another great line of SimAngus bulls, plus 40 Traditional and Red Simmentals).

There is plenty of value – about 30 per cent of the bull offerings have sold in the  $4000-$6000 range over the past 2 years.

Tom and Lizzy Baker have continually searched the world for the best Simmental genetics that will perform to, and beyond expectations off grass in the open grazing regimes in Australia. Sires that feature strongly this year include Glen Anthony Y-arta (NZ) (the sire of the $160,000 record holder, W. Los Angeles) and Wormbete Katoomba in the Traditionals, and MRL Capone 130B from MRL Simmentals in Canada in the all reds, while Los Angeles and his full brother Las Vegas are also represented.

  • Woonallee will participate in SA Beef Week on Monday, February 4. Sale catalogues will be posted on the website and regular updates will be posted on the website and on Facebook.
