INAUGURAL BULL SALE 2023

150 Elite Sires, 7 September, on farm and online via AuctionsPlus
After 16 years of selling our bulls privately, we have made the decision to take the bulls to market. As the volume of bulls and clients has grown, we have found it increasingly difficult to fairly allocate our bulls so have made the logical decision to move to a public sale.

By cataloguing by the far largest run of wagyu sires to go to market we are hoping to give our existing and new customers a large choice of bulls at commercial rates.

We are very proud of the line-up of yearling bulls we have for sale this year, with over 100 of our sale bulls in the top 10% of the breed for the F1 Terminal Index. The average marble score for our sale bulls is a massive 1.9 – meaning that our bulls average in the top 12% of the breed for marble score. At the same time we are also focused on growth traits, and this crop of bulls have an average carcase weight EBV in the top 25%. We believe, with this very strong balance between elite marbling and strong carcase traits, that this is the best line up of bulls that we have presented to date.

All our bulls are tested ready to work. They are freeze branded, have received a full treatment schedule including testing for pesti virus, treatment with pesti-gaurd, vibrio vax, selenium LA, 7 in 1.

Whether you are looking for extremely high marbling bulls with moderate growth for the F1 market, or high growth bulls for more maternal traits, then we have the bull for you.

Breeding Focus
2023 Bull Sale Data

Trent Bridge has a relentless focus on breeding high marbling cattle. However, we also recognise that producers still get paid on weight. In simple terms, our breeding goal for our bulls is to produce a large volume of future sires which have high marbling and moderate growth. The 2022 drop of bull calves are sitting exactly where we want them to be with an average marble score of the sale bulls at +1.9 (top 10% of the breed) and an average 200 day weight of +13 (top 35% of the breed).
