Hazeldean's outstanding Calving Ease
Hazeldean has been selecting for calving ease for more than 30 years - our heifers calve down easily with only a handful of the more than 400 calving heifers having any sort of difficulty. Any female who has problems calving for whatever reason is culled from the herd. Calving difficulties are not much fun to deal with and a live calf is worth a hell of alot more than a dead one! Calving ease and reproduction is the cornerstone of any successful herd.


Hazeldean sire's exceptional performance in Angus Australia Sire Benchmarking Programme

The progeny of Hazeldean sires NHZF493 and NHZF1023 part of cohort 3 of the AA sire benchmarking programme have performed exceptionally well, in all traits including calving ease, growth, and particularly carcase– Out of progeny from 40 sires F1023 progeny ranked 1st for carcase IMF and 2nd for MSA index and F493 progeny were ranked 3rd, 2nd and 4th for 200, 400 & 600 day weight, also performing at the top for carcase traits.

Hazeldean Sales information

Hazeldean Guarantee and Replacements, Refunds, Credits

Although we do our very best to ensure every bull we catalogue sees out many years of good service, occasionally premature breakdowns occur. In this event we guarantee unconditionally all bulls for 12 months from purchase and further if poor reproduction results from a genetic defect we were unaware of pre-sale. Our policy is to look after the people who look after us so if there is a problem please let us know.

To resolve the issue of a bull breakdown we will work with you to achieve the best outcome for your breeding enterprise. In the instance of a bull breaking down during the breeding season we will endeavour to find a replacement and get him to you ASAP. If you are able to cover the breakdown with a spare, then we will either offer a replacement at a later date or issue a credit equivalent to the purchase price of the original bull that you can use at a future sale.



Any animal that either dies or has to be destroyed due to injury within 28 days of sale will be replaced or refunded by Hazeldean. Additional insurance to cover death or loss of use after 28 days can be arranged at the sale.

We recommend that you organise a pre-mating bull examination at least 6 weeks prior to joining to ensure that he is in the best of health & capable of producing pregnancies. This should include a serving ability test where the bull is observed serving a cow or heifer.


Hazeldean has an uncompromising approach to structural assessment with all bulls and females annually assessed and those failing the assessment are culled. No animal has received treatment to their feet.

The sales bulls have been independently assessed by Liam Cardile from BeefXcel.  Read more
