The Elite Wagyu Sale of 2019 proved beyond doubt – that Elite Wagyu genetics are in high demand and represent the very best of the breed outside Japan. Over the past seven years, the Elite Wagyu Sale has consistently raised the bar to strengthen results and set the standard for the industry’s top genetics.
With strong auction results reported in 2019, buyers from Australia and overseas had a particular focus on top-ranked females, with bulls, semen and embryos also performing well.
The 2020 Elite Wagyu Sale will again build on the proven success of past sales, by increasing the sale qualifications around body condition, genetic testing and accuracy of EBVs for the sale categories in addition to the listings being in the top 5% of breed genetics. The Lots on offer represent the highest percentiles in performance against BREEDPLAN reported traits and BreedObject $Indexes.
The 2020 Elite Wagyu Sale is now open for Vendors to nominate their best Wagyu for Sale.
The auction will be conducted by RuralCo/GDL and hosted by AuctionsPlus under the ALPA Livestock Auction Terms and Conditions of Sale with promotional support from the AWA. Many of the genetics on offer may be exported, buyers must take due diligence to ensure with the vendor that required protocols are observed for their export conditions. Buyers need to be registered with RuralCo/GDL prior to the sale in order to bid.
Now in its 7th year, the Sale will once again be conducted live and online during the WagyuEdge 2020 Annual Conference 29 April – 1 May 2020, to be held at the Royal Pines Resort, Queensland.
The Elite Wagyu Sale will be held on the afternoon of Day 2 of the WagyuEdge Conference. The Sale will be held at 4 pm AEST, prior to the Gala Dinner. A print copy of the catalogue will be available during the conference and online prior to the Sale.
