ABOUT THE SPECKLE PARK SALE
Why it was created?
The Speckles in the Capital Sale is a great opportunity to access Speckle Park Bulls, Females and Genetics for Sale at Yass, NSW Australia. The principals of Rose Hill and Kikiamah Speckle Park Studs came up with the idea for the sale to create the most diverse offering of Speckle Park genetics in Australia at this location given its close proximity to Beef and Dairy Producers and the suitability of the selling complex at Yass.
The sale offers larger cattle operations traditionally turning off bigger framed later finishing cattle with a second revenue stream of joining older cows and heifers to a speckle bull and turning off higher quality calves at a younger age.
At the same time vendors realised the advantages of introducing the Speckle Park to dairy farmers from the south coast due to the ability of the breed to add considerable value to calves from the first cross.
The trifecta for the Speckle in the Capital sale is the discerning small holding farmer looking to maximise the profits of their enterprise with high performance front paddock cattle.

Anything that makes the sale unique?
A great philosopher, Napoleon Hill, once said “It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” We share this philosophy and have acted to provide an opportunity for breeders to sell their cattle as well as create a supportive environment where seasoned breeders can mentor newer ones, advancing the entire breed. We encourage our vendors to be involved in the preparation of their sale cattle from start to finish, where possible. From discussions about breeding choices to working shoulder to shoulder to clip and photograph animals, we endeavour to help breeders to help themselves.
