GELBVIEH   TASMANIA

                                                 " Taking beef to new premiums "                                  

March 2018   A  dry Winter and Spring was not much better. Sale bulls have managed well on a hay supplement and pasture. Have Red and Black purebred Gelbviehs and Balancers and Red Angus available for sale.  A  steady enquiry and still only the beginning of the Autumn sales. Some have already gone to new homes  and there are some good bulls still looking for a new home. Call us to arrange an inspection.        
August 2017  We are very excited with the black bulls we have available for sale this year and would love to show them to you if you are looking to add some muscle   and quiet temperament to you next drop of calves. These bulls are now around 2 year old and keen to work.  We  have set the price at $3500 per head because we feel that they would be far better in your paddock working than in our paddock looking for work.                                                      Geltas Moonshine at 18 months  750 kg grass and silage fed.

February 2016     Bull sale time is now ready to roll. Not the best leadup I can remember, in fact the last 18 months has been probably the worst period that anyone can remember in Tasmania. The historical records also indicate the worst on record. Statewide has been well below average rainfall and a very cold, dry winter. As a result conserved fodder is in high demand and at prices never seen before. To say we need a good early Autumn break is a gross understatement.

We, like many others have gone through our herd and reduced numbers to try and provide feed for the keepers. The upside has been the excellent prices being paid by the processors for all lines of cattle.   We were also fortunate that a return commercial buyer selected some more commercial cow/ calf units to add to their herd. They are so impressed with the performance of the Balancer cattle and the quality of the calves they produce. Had another prospective buyer ring last week and after a short chat said he would come for a look. He had read an article about Gelbvieh in a magazine. An easy sale once he saw the cattle. His parting comment was "I'll be back for more after I"ve sold some more old cows"

Naturally we culled our keeper bull mob very heavily and the result is we only have 7 bulls available for sale this year. These are all top shelf bulls that anyone should be proud to add to their herd.


Freight subsidies available to mainland purchasers. We breed bulls for sale, not just to look good in our paddock

Sire: CIRS Decade      Dam: Norolle Shady Lady E50

Bred in the purple, Karma had a successful show season last year and then was the backup sire to 30 cows after an AI program. We think very highly of this bull and he has the typical Gelbvieh  placid nature.  Excellent topline and sound structure he carries himself very well. Loves his cows and always looking for more. Would complement any stud or commercial herd. Available for sale but will remain as a sire in our stud if not sold.  We have been very impressed with our Decade cattle.

King Kong is a typical Centurion calf, has that extra bit of length and a strong topline to carry himself.  Dam is one of our good old cows, but sadly at 13 years of age she had to move on as we have enough younger replacements.
