You should now have received your Semex catalogue with the 2018 bull team. If you haven’t received your catalogue please get in touch with you Semex Representative.
There are two new bulls presented by RBG for 2018:
Brecon Pohara – a polled bull sired by Oliver Woods Carbo – P. Note: The Semex catalogue has incorrectly named the sire of this bull and doesn’t note it is polled
Brecon White Knight – a white bull sired by Brecon Egmont
Along with these two new bulls, you can also obtain semen for other RBG bulls and some overseas genetics is also available. Once again talk to your representative about your needs or make contact with any of the RBG committee or give me a call on 06 3292648.
Looking ahead to 2019
Just a reminder that if you autumn calve, you may have a bull which would be eligible for selection in the 2019 Bull Team. So check your young bulls to see if they have the characteristics which we get asked for such as polled, roan A2A2.
If you think you have a potential young sire for the RBG Committee to consider, please make sure you complete the six steps outlined below:
- Ensure your bull calf is identified on the database
- Name your bull calf
- Request a 3 GP from the NZMSA office
- DNA the bull calf for parentage and A2A2
- Contact myself or speak to your RBG liaison person, who will let the committee know
- Send through, via email, the 3 GP
