WELCOME TO INJEMIRA
GENETICS | POLL HEREFORD BREEDERS
Injemira Beef Genetics is a family run and owned whiteface seedstock business where Polled Genetics are utilised to produce commercially orientated bulls for the Australian beef industry. We offer annually 80 Polled Hereford Sires through our annual sale on the last Tuesday of February and private treaty throughout the Spring months. Along with this 450 Commercial PTIC, EU Accredited Heifers are sold in conjunction with our bull sale.
Our program is not your traditional stud business. Our breeding decisions are dictated to by commercial reality and that alone. Many stud operations can claim this but at Injemira we do it ourselves. In 2012, Injemira will turn off from grass 2,600 commercial steers and heifers. With pedigrees analysed for “real world” performance and this analyses directs our breeding decisions for the upcoming breeding season.
This vertical integration with the commercial performance driving our stud herd not only enables us to offer bulls that we know will perform but it also allows Injemira to give relevant feedback to repeat clientele to give them the most desirable genetic package. “Seedstock production is not selling a bull but selling a complete program.”
The injemira stud herd consists of 300 registered stud breeders with a program of not culling any heifers.
Natural selection does this for us. All females have to calve naturally before 2 years of age and rebreed to calve again at the age of 3. If any female does not do this she is culled. This enables Injemira to offer for sale every 3rd year complete age groups of proven mature stud females as we have large numbers of replacement females coming through the system.
This stringent commercially orientated program is why Injemira can offer to the industry 120 bulls annually from only 300 stud females. The Injemira drop is very consistent with each bull being highly predictable genetically. We see in our industry far too often seedstock herds with large numbers of registered females selling relatively small numbers of bulls, you only get to see the top of the drop. At Injemira, you will basically see the entire drop giving you the confidence that your “genetic package” will breed to a consistent level.
