Conditions of Sale Insurance Guarantees

On the back of 25 years of recorded Red Deer breeding at Wilkins Farming Co, we welcome you to our 12th
annual South Island 2-year-old red stag sale.
We are proud of our longevity and commitment to the industry and would like to thank our loyal clients for
the belief shown through your purchases, which in turn allows us to continue to invest in our stud.
It has certainly been an unconventional lead up and even though we are an essential service I am sure you,
like us have faced some challenging times both on and off farm thanks to COVID-19.
This year’s line-up of sale stags presents some excellent animals and an exciting opportunity to improve
your returns. I am sure you will be impressed by the depth of breeding, bloodlines and figures behind the
animals on offer. This year’s sale includes stags sired by:
• BIG GEOFF (Maternal – English Cross) – This is the first time we have offered his sons. These animals
are great for breeding your replacement hinds. Good growth and loin weights will see your venison
production increase, great temperament and velvet to boot.
• CHURCHILL (Maternal – English) – This stalwart sire’s dominance within our stud will be scaled back
from the 2021/2022 sale season. This will therefore be your last chance to buy numbers of sons from
this proven Maternal sire. In addition, we have a couple of exciting combinations of Churchill and Tui
crosses, combining the two sires that are no 1 in NZ for key traits W12eBV and CDeBV, an exceptional
combination for breeding replacement hinds.
• TUI (European) – A great opportunity to introduce growth rate and mean calving date as Tui is
ranked #1 on DEERSelect for this trait. There are several sons with exceptional CDeBV’s on offer up
to -8.88 days.
• ICON (European) - Icon is ranked #1 on DEERSelect for the meat yield trait, so his sons in this sale
allow you to maximise the opportunity for this important trait.
• WF 144/05 and WF 334/11 (European) – Two of our stalwart sires that continue to perform within
our herd. I strongly recommend the progeny on offer by both stags. These sale animals possess solid
eBV’s, growth rates and eye muscle areas to enhance venison production. WF 144/05 also features
Maternal hardiness going back to 350 Red on the dam side.
• MONZA and BALATON (Eastern) – Both of these relatively new sires provide exciting new and
proven pedigree for high growth rate, clean velvet, and stunning antler dimension.
Please note that once again we have made the decision to organise the freight on account of the purchaser,
unless specifically requested otherwise. This is to minimise the risk of injury to your purchases by reducing
the number of yarding’s.
We look forward to hosting you at Athol in January.
Should you have any questions prior to the sale, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
Yours in farming
