Gateway Farms



We proudly present our second annual Gateway Farms Prestige Wagyu Auction 2023. This year we will present the animals on farm to be viewed on the 18th from 9 am till 5 pm and also on the 19th from 9am to 11 am. The sale will be held at Gloucester Golf club, 4651 The Bucketts Way, Gloucester NSW 2422 and will start at 12pm on the 19th. The sale will be interfaced online with Elite Livestock Auctions. We have a great lineup of 45 top Fullblood Heifers, 21 Fullblood Bulls and 8 Polled Bulls to present for 2023.

Over the past few years, we have produced some amazing calves from our WE PACK FP00011 sire. So for our 2023 sale, we decided to use this bull over some of our top Gateway cows to produce bulls and heifers that can be used widely with almost any of Australia’s elite sires and dams. This creates the opportunity to breed incredible calves with these bulls and heifers. We also put great effort into bringing milk into our herd and will offer some of these heifers in this sale. In this sale, we have also handpicked eight top-polled bulls. We have a lot of faith in the polled breed and have spent the past eight years breeding polled wagyu out of our Fullblood herd. Gateway has established a great genetic pool in our polled Wagyu, pushing the marbling and EMI to new heights. These polled bulls don’t stand back from any Fullblood bull and are opening a new era in the polled Wagyu.

Important Notice and Disclaimer

It is very important that you appreciate when viewing the AWA database that the information contained on the AWA database, including but not limited to pedigree, DNA information, Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) and Index values, is based on data supplied by members and/or third parties.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information reported through AWA, AWA officers and employees assume no responsibility for its content, use or interpretation. AWA disclaims all liability (including without limitation, liability in negligence) for all expenses, losses, damages and costs you may incur as a result of the use by you of the data on this AWA database and the information supplied by ABRI and AGBU being inaccurate or incomplete in any way for any reason.

Regarding EBVs and Index values, it is very important to appreciate, and you need to be aware that:

  • EBVs are derived using Wagyu Single Step BREEDPLAN technology developed independently by the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU), using the information contained within the AWA database.
  • AGBU is a joint venture of NSW Department of Primary Industries and the University of New England, which receives funding for this purpose from Meat and Livestock Australia Limited.
  • AWA relies solely on advice provided by AGBU and ABRI in accepting Wagyu Single Step BREEDPLAN software.
  • EBVs published in Wagyu Single Step BREEDPLAN are estimates of genetic potential of individual animals and may not reflect the raw animal phenotype.
  • EBVs can only be directly compared to other EBVs calculated in the same monthly Wagyu Group BREEDPLAN analysis.

Regarding pedigree and DNA testing results submitted to the AWA, it is very important to appreciate, and you need to be aware that:

  • Pedigree and DNA data submitted and supplied to AWA may have errors in it which cannot be detected without further DNA testing.
  • Technology may have advanced since a particular test was undertaken so that previous inaccuracies which were not detectable are now able to be detected by current testing technology.
  • AWA estimates that less than 1% of the pedigree entries, ownership or breeding details in the AWA Herdbook may have errors or which may be misleading. For this reason, users ought to consider if they need to obtain independent testing of the relevant animal (if possible) to ensure that the data is accurate.

Regarding prefectural content, it is very important to appreciate, and you need to be aware that:

  • Prefectural content is based on the estimation of prefectural origin from Japanese breeding records of 201 foundation sires and 168 foundation dams.  As genotype-based parent verification is not used in Japan, and full Japanese registration certificates are not available for all foundation animals, exact prefectural composition for these sires and dams cannot be validated.
  • The calculation of prefectural content for Australian Herdbook animals relies on the accuracy of pedigree records and DNA samples provided by AWA members.
  • The reporting of prefectural content for animals within the AWA Herdbook relies on the calculation provided by ABRI.

If you consider that you do not understand or appreciate the nature and extent of the data provided on this website or the EBVs of a particular animal, then AWA strongly recommends that you seek independent expert advice.
