ADVERTISING FEATURE

Eylwarra Sands stud was established in 1997 on the Eyre Peninsula (after breeding commercial herd for 13 years prior), moving to the lower South East in 2010.

They have always focused on fertility, calving ease, high growth rate and EBV figures, while maintaining the structure and temperament of the Murray Greys and meeting today’s market.

At this year’s SA Beef Field Days they will have on display and for sale 12 young sires (17-23 months) by ES Falcon F33 and ES Hardcore H4, registered and commercial mated and unmated heifers, plus cow and calf units for sale.

Eylwarra Sands Falcon F33 is a leader in six trials - 200, 400, 600-day weights, scrotal, carcase weight and retail beef yields.

One of Falcon’s daughters at 13 months sold for $10500 at MG National 2017.

The past few years have seen the success of Loxton and Naracoorte high school steers exhibited at Adelaide Royal and Mount Gambier shows.

AJS Murray Greys was established in 2007.

At age 11, Angela picked her first heifer out at Woodbourn Murray Greys in Tasmania and now has 11 stud females with a few commercials.

In 2014 she showed AJS Josh J3, taking out Junior and Grand Champion Bull (Royal Adelaide Show) and 2015 Reserve Senior Bull (Murray Grey National Show and Sale), selling him for $7000 into WA.

They are also at the Lucindale Field Days on March 15 and 16.

All animals breedplan recorded, scanned annually, 7-in-1 vacc and pesti-neg tested. Inspections are welcomed.
