FOREWORD




        We would like to welcome everyone to the annual Shian Bull Sale.  The property of 757 hectares is
                        located 11 kilometres southeast of Taumarunui in the King Country.
         Shian Angus was established in 1972 by Brian and Sharon with the purchase of two stud heifers
                                               from the Lairdvale Stud.

       In 2014 son Rob and his wife Tracy came into partnership with Brian and Sharon and the operation
                           is now farmed under the name Shian Farms.  At present we run
            approximately 250 stud cows.  All females going into the herd are calved as two year olds.
          The cattle we aim to breed are well framed, fertile, quiet cattle with structural soundness and a
                                                good balance of EBV’s.

         We are very pleased with the line up of bulls we have put forward this year they came through a
        dryer spell particularly well, and are a good even line. We have some exciting new sires of the sale
        bulls this year. Taimate Mako has left a great line of cattle, soft fleshing structurally sound, super
        quiet cattle. Just like himself with a good spread of data. Matauri Ranger is a bull with scope and
       length, structurally sound and quiet in nature. These traits are displayed in his sons. Waiterenui M3
        was purchased as a yearling for heifer mating and has bred well, with some of his sons being sold
         as yearlings. Waitangi was also purchased for heifer mating with his cattle growing into bigger
            cattle. Kaharau 321 has his 2nd crop this year and Kaino again has some impressive sons.

                We look forward to seeing you on sale day and invite you to join us for a BBQ and
                                              refreshments after the sale.
