BULLS THAT WORK is our belief and we cover all bases from fertility, performance data, adaptation and customer satisfaction. Our breeding philosophy for our 600 females is that they must calve in our calving period every year. Our bulls must graze, adapt and perform quickly, with minimum inputs.
We offer bulls and females for sale privately all year round, and hold an annual on-property bull sale in August each year. In 2013 we will be offering 152 bulls at our 22nd annual sale.
Monday 29th & Tuesday 30th April 2019
at "Glenoch" Chinchilla
Sandon Glenoch Angus are offering 50% discount for our valued clients to attend the school.
The cattle that are trained and handled with low stress stock handling principles are better performers all round, as they are relaxed and happy in their environment.
The welfare of our cattle is important to us, as we realise that stress can contribute to weight loss and reduced pregnancy rates. With these ethical values in mind, we are conducting a Low Stress Stockhandling school and we would like to offer it to our valued clients. It is a good opportunity for us to get together.
The school is to be held at "Glenoch" on 29th & 30th April with Chook Kealey. More information about Chook is below.
The cost is usually $660 per person, however Sandon Glenoch Angus are offering to pay half of this. We need at least 20 people to run the school.
We hope you can join us.
Cost: $330 per person
(Regular price $660)

We’re supporting our local campdrafts again this year, through sponsorship and supplying cattle.
The Condamine Bell Campdraft and Chinchilla Campdrafts are among the most competitive and prestigious in Australia, and we’re proud to have been part of these for many years as sponsors, cattle donors, committee members and competitors.
If you’re interested in spectating at these great events, Condamine runs from this Friday 12th - Sunday 14th October, and Chinchilla Grandfather Clock will be held Wednesday 17th - Saturday 20th October.
The scrotal size measurement for the scrotal size Estimated Breeding Value (EBV) is taken at 400 days. This is when scrotal size is most correlated to early puberty in daughters. You may be presented with scrotal size data collected prior to the bull sale, but this data is not as valuable as the measurement at 400 days.
Do your bull shopping with vendors who provide you with enough information to make informed decisions. You need information on morphology at 400 days (600 days for brahmans), a Bull Breeding Soundness Evaluation, a scrotal size EBV, growth EBVs, calving interval of the dam, birth weight EBVs, Information including growth EBVs, fat EBVs and gestation length is also advisable.
If you really want to improve your breeding and genetics get along to a Breeding EDGE workshop: http://bit.ly/2HNCemx
