This year marks the 94th year of the Graham family breeding Angus cattle on South west Slopes of NSW.

On Wednesday September 30, Bongongo Angus will host its 26th annual spring on-property Bull sale at Riverview. The sale will be via video auction and interfaced with Auctions Plus.

Of the line-up of 80 bulls, 30 yearling bulls will be offered for the first time which should stimulate considerable interest.

Notable genetics include bulls by Beastmode, Clunies Range Legend, Lawsons Momentous, KO Proceed N21 and GAR Drive.

Bongongo is renowned for many generations of breeding Angus bulls that are lower birthweight, calving ease positive with growth, muscling and marbling.

Bongongo cattle are bred under strict commercial conditions.

"They are not supplementary fed except in drought conditions," Bill Graham said.

"Our bulls are all genomics tested (Zoetis i50k test). This enhances our EBV accuracy and ensures accurate parentage of all our sale bulls. Temperament of our bulls is very important, and our bulls are renowned for being exceptionally quiet and easy to manage. Any animal that shows bad temperament is culled immediately as this is highly heritable and affects carcase quality and growth rate.

"Finally we don't push our bulls when preparing them for sale. Big weights is not a priority. Longevity of the breeding life of our bulls for their new owner is. Our bulls are sold in their working clothes, vet checked and ready to work."
