At Cadfor Murray Greys we guarantee the quality of all the animals listed for sale. We aim to provide our clients with bulls that will improve their herds and profitability. The bulls we offer have figures in the top 10% of the Murray Grey breed in at least one of the following areas: calving ease, growth, carcase attributes or financial indices.
The animals currently (September 2017) for sale are listed here. The EBV graphs show the Breedplan data for each animal. Lines to the right of the graph indicate the animal is superior for that trait. Lines to the left are less desirable.
In the Southern Tablelands most calving occurs in spring and most bull sales occur between August and November. This is the period during which we list our bulls for sale. Our herd calves in autumn and spring and therefore we are able to provide bulls in a range of ages to suit clients’ needs. We generally sell our bulls between 12 and 20 months of age. Younger bulls can be kept at Cadfor until they reach joining age. For further information on the use of yearling bulls click here. Our bulls are scanned and independently assessed before being placed on our sales list.
The sale bulls are tested free of Contractural Arachnodactyly (CA), as well as being DNA tested, sire verified and free of pestivirus persistent infection (PI). The bulls have been vaccinated with 7 in 1 and Pestigard.
The bulls are yard weaned and well handled before being reared on good pastures. They are not grain fed but provided with hay and a protein meal if conditions require it. Cadfor bulls are very quiet and are used to being handled on foot.
We provide full data on the animals we sell – pedigree, colour, birth date, birth weight, growth rate, weaning weight, scan data (EMA, fat and intramuscular fat), scrotal measurements, assessments of temperament, structure and prepuce. The bulls currently for sale and all their data are listed on a separate page here.
