Dear Angus Breeders,

It has been a long time coming but it would be fair to say most beef producers in Australia are benefiting from a good season and good prices as well. Those who have kept the faith are being paid for the quality they produce for domestic and global markets.

Hazeldean genetics continue to improve the main profit drivers in your beef enterprise. Labour efficiency and feed conversion continue to be an imperative – Hazeldean bulls fit within that theme with calving ease and above average growth being produced by a moderate and fertile female.

We welcome you to our South Australian beef field day on the 6 th February and our on property auction on the 14th February.         Guy Cunningham  January 2017

Improve your calving ease and pull less calves 

Hazeldean has been selecting for calving ease for more than 20 years - our heifers calve down easily with only a handful of the more than 300 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 worth a hell of alot more than a dead one! Hazeldean bulls will sire females with "built-in" calving ease.

Hazeldean Sales information

Hazeldean guarantee

Hazeldean Guarantees the structural and genetic integrity of all sale animals. The entry of every animal constitutes a guarantee by Hazeldean that the bull will be replaced, purchase price refunded or a credit issued (the option remaining with Hazeldean after discussion with the purchaser) if, for whatever reason, the purchaser is dissatisfied with the animal. Notice of dissatisfaction must be lodged within 12 months of sale.

After 12 months Hazeldean will replace, refund or credit, if an animal has broken down and in the opinion of a veterinary surgeon suffers from a genetic disorder other than corkscrew penis or the rigours of advancing age.

In other instances where significant loss arises simply from bad luck, Hazeldean will do its best to overcome the problem to the mutual  satisfaction of all.



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.


Health Check

All sale bulls are thoroughly assessed by a vet prior to sale. Animals displaying faults likely to interfere with a normal & productive life are culled

The Hazeldean herd has been assessed & tested under the National Johnes Disease Market Assurance Program & holds an MN3 (monitored negative 3) status, the highest level.

Bulls are vaccinated for Vibriosis, Pestivirus, and receive a 7 in 1 vaccination

Queensland sale bulls are vaccinated for 3 day sickness and tick fever

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.
Please note:
Although Hazeldean employs best practice procedures in livestock husbandry and does it's best to ensure every animal catalogued for sale is free from disease, internal parasites and external parasites it does not guarantee that any sale animal is free of disease, internal parasites or external parasites.


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
