Welcome to our 1st on-farm sale,
We are finally here! What an enormous 18 months it has been for the team at Hallmark. It has been Max’s dream since a boy to have an on-farm bull sale and it really is a major milestone to have got to sale day here at Mokara, where he grew up.
After 5 successful sales at Stortford Lodge, the family felt it was good timing to ‘bring the buyers home’- show you the country, and spoil you a bit. Hence…‘HOME IS WHERE THE HALLMARK IS’. We hope you enjoy the bulls, the hospitality and get a better feel for what we are trying to achieve as a genetics business. We believe you will see our clear commitment to our cattle and to be here for a long time – and a good one!
Thank you to our family of supporters and businesses that have contributed to the huge development we have been working towards over the last 18 months. What an achievement! We are blown away with the result and have included many of these businesses in our advertising throughout the catalogue – we rate them, so be sure to use them for your next project.
We have had a very recent, tragic loss in our family and will desperately miss Rose Tweedie at this year’s bull sale and for many sales to come. She had a vision for the event, and we have really tried hard to see that vision through. With food on offer like pulled beef brisket, polenta and potatoe whip, Gremolata (whatever that is?) and sauerkraut – we reckon we will do Rosie proud.
We are stoked with the bulls this year. We believe them to be our best line yet. Improvements in the quality, data and presentation are all evident. But you will have to be here on sale day to see for yourself.
This year we again welcome Sue Coldicutt from Matai Mara Angus in Cambridge to the sale. She has an exciting bull out of a cow that was purchased for $13,000 as a heifer calf!
Check out our feature Lot 35 – the pick of a litter out of ‘Koka’ the beautifully put together (and mated) German Short Haired Pointer. Koka will be at the sale – with her pups – for your inspection.
Thank you for taking an interest in what we do, we are passionate about our cattle and excited to utilise the impressive new facility we have built for a great party afterwards. We will see you there, at our new function venue -‘Rosies’
