Turiroa bulls are pasture reared, with accurate identification and recording, using D.N.A tested sires.
They are performance recorded and carcass scanned and are inspected for sale by Angus Society Inspectors with the Angus Approved cattle logo appearing by those bulls reaching the stringent quality controls set out by the New Zealand Angus Association.
During 2002 the New Zealand Angus Association changed its inspection system to reflect an increasing demand for a quality control system that could be promoted throughout the Angus Industry.
Now animals of a minimum age (18 months) which pass inspection by qualified Association Inspectors may assume an
Approved Status and may be promoted in public sale forums under the associated New Zealand Angus Association Approved Status logo as shown here.
This means that the animal has passed a minimum standard with relation to:
• Structural Soundness • Capacity • Feet • Reproductive Traits
• Jaw • Sheath • Angus Breed Type • Testicles • Frame Size • Temperament
The stud buyer can then buy with confidence knowing that all the above points have been considered.
Look out for the Approved Status logo in breeders' catalogues this year: your guarantee of quality.
• Accredited brucellosis and tuberculosis (c10) free herd.
• BVD vaccinated.
If at any time, a purchaser has doubts about a bulls fertility or serving capacity, our bulls are fully guaranteed and we will assist you to protect your investment.
