THE Stock Journal team along with major partners MGA Insurance Group and Allflex Animal Intelligence are very excited for 2021 Stock Journal Beef Week.
There will be 57 studs representing 11 different breeds across the four days. The event will begin on Friday, February 5, in the Mid North with day two to be held in the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Loxton areas on Sunday, February 7, Lower South East studs will be open Monday, February 8, and the Upper South East will complete Beef Week on Tuesday, February 9. Studs will be open from 9am until 4pm for inspections.

It is great to welcome six new studs participating in Stock Journal Beef Week 2021 - Aruma Limousin on day one in the Mid North, Highridge South Devon stud and Kilkerrin Poll Hereford stud on day two in the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Loxton, Phillips Cattle Company Angus and Murray Grey studs and Mt Mooney Simmental stud on day three in the Lower South East and Allendale Angus on day four in the Upper South East.
Bottlesford Murray Grey and Angus will display on their normal day on Sunday at Tungkillo and will also display on day three at Naracoorte at the Phillips Cattle Company venue. Nampara Angus will hold its normal day on Monday in the Lower South East and also display sale bulls at Strathalbyn saleyards on Sunday for visitors attending Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula.
With many parts of the country having a great season and livestock prices at record highs there is a lot of confidence and enthusiasm in the red meat industry.
The 2021 bull selling season should be exciting for breeders in the seedstock industry potentially being well rewarded for their passion, hard work and industry leading genetics they produce.
Stock Journal Beef Week gives stud breeders the opportunity to welcome visitors to their properties and display their breeding and sale stock.
While from a visitor perspective, the event allows the opportunity to view potential sale stock, particularly sale bulls for upcoming auctions. The on-property field days are a stress-free way for potential buyers to make their investment selections for their breeding programs.
Visitors should make the effort to view many studs and different breeds to appreciate the depth of quality SA stud breeders have to offer the beef industry.
I wish all participating studs a very successful day.
