The Australian Wagyu Association is pleased to announce that the preliminary catalogue of Lots for the 2020 Elite Wagyu Sale is now available online.
This year, we have a total of 98 exceptional Lots including:
Interest in submission of Lots in the Sale was extremely high this year. The Association would like to thank all potential vendors for putting forward their Lots for consideration in the Sale, however, a maximum of 100 entries for the Sale was decided by the Elite Wagyu Sale Committee.
This year the Association has strengthened the criteria for the Sale to be animals or genetic Lots with EBVs or BreedObject $Indexes in the top 5% of the breed; the final Lots exhibited multiple EBVs or $Index values.
Genomic (50K DNA) testing has also been been completed to increase the accuracy of EBVs for all live Lots. Along with this, the Association has ensured testing for genetic recessive conditions has been completed where animals were not able to be demonstrated as ‘free’ by pedigree alone.
To view the Lots, click on the link above and select “Show All Entries” on the top left-hand side of the screen. Then click on “Show ALL EBVs” to see the April 2020 Wagyu BREEDPLAN figures for the Lots. For Flush and Embryo lots, please click on the link for each Lot and the mid-parent predicted Expected Progeny Values will be displayed for each individual lot.
Photographs of all Lots will be completed in the coming days.
The 2020 Elite Wagyu Sale will be held online on Thursday the 30th of April 2020 at 3.30pm.
