2023 Sale Bulls


16th Annual Bull Sale at Turanville

2023 will see our 16th annual bull sale at Turanville when we will be offering our 2021 drop “S” bulls and a run of 2022 “T” Autumn drop bulls, registered and recorded with Performance Herds Australia (PHA) Ltd. PHA consists of a group of progressive seed-stock breeders recording pedigree and performance of progeny from Shorthorn and Shorthorn cross females across Australia, representing some of the oldest and largest Shorthorn herds in the Country.


Preparation of the bulls we offer..

All sale bulls are vet checked and semen tested, fully vaccinated and presented in good working order ready to give our clients the trouble-free service we aim to produce them for. We are pleased with the responses we continually receive from successful purchasers with regard to the way Turanville bulls go to work and importantly the progeny they produce.


Breedplan & Genetics

At Turanville the bulls are left in as large a contemporary group as possible in order to measure their data and utilise Breedplan to help identify more predictable animals, with the genetic mix to drive the commercial breeder’s profit.

Turanville genetics have gained a reputation for performing well in numerous carcase competitions over the years. These results, along with the continued feedback from feedlots and MSA kill sheets all help us to measure the important commercial performance of our cattle and identify the bloodlines that best suit market requirements. Turanville have also been supplying purebred Shorthorns into the JBS Great Southern Farm Assured (grass fed) program and the JBS Thousand Guineas Shorthorn Branded Beef product.


Durham Red Bulls.

Our 2023 sale draft will include Durham Reds (Red Angus cross) again this year with a couple of outstanding AI sons of Milwillah Marble Bar and some attractive low birth weight heifer bulls.

Bull Viewing & Inspections Welcomed

As we approach our annual Bull Sale date the bulls will be able to be viewed on our website and there will be linkage to the Performance Herds Australia database to provide further information needed.

Inspection of the bulls is welcomed any time at Turanville.
