Welcome to the 2016 Rissington Yearling Bull Sale.

Twenty four years ago when we held our first Yearling Bull Sale we made the decision to offer the best of the new genetics to share with our customers.

‘BEST` is a loose word that is interpreted in many different ways by cattle breeders.

Our definition of best, is now the $Profit® EPD.

One simple proven number that gives each trait a weight according to its impact on profit.

This takes into account fertility, growth, feed intake and carcass merit.

At long last we have what we consider another game changer for the industry similar to the likes of understanding the impact of crossbreeding through the last part of last century.

We have had within herd or breed indexes for some years now. However, to be part of a huge Global Alliance (seven hundred and forty thousand recorded animals) of people and groups all dedicated to objective measurement based on profitability - a dream come true.

The most important part for us was to witness the validation of our program in many diverse environments around the world across many purebreds and composite cattle.

In short $Profit® works, is updated weekly with all new phenotypic and genomic data submitted and is exclusively available at Rissington in NZ.

We can’t wait to share with you this huge leap forward in simplifying your selection choices for your next generation of young sires.
