This year, we will have co-agents operating to sell lots at the Elite Wagyu Sale, with GDL and Elders sharing the lots across a new Elite Wagyu Sale format.
The Elite Wagyu Sale continues to provide the leading platform for the sale of current high performing and unique Wagyu genetics in an international marketplace. These genetics represent the leading edge of the Wagyu breeding sector.
The 2022 April Elite Wagyu Sale is now open for Vendors to register Lots for the Sale, to be conducted on April 27 as part of a cocktail evening at the 2022 WagyuEdge Annual Conference.
The Sale will feature live Lots and genetics with multiple EBVs in the top 5% in each trait category (carcase, growth and maternal (gestation and milk)) and AWA Breed $Index values in the top 1% of Wagyu BREEDPLAN.
The Lots will include breeding females, joining sires, donors of semen and embryos. The number of Lots will be limited to 60 at the discretion of AWA. Vendors are able to select from GDL or Elders as agents for their lots
“The Australian Wagyu Association’s Elite Wagyu Sale continues to promote the leading edge of high performing Wagyu genetics to an international market that is seeking data driven genetics,” said Dr Matt McDonagh, CEO Australian Wagyu Association.
