BANEMORE’S breeding has excelled in poor seasonal conditions. At the December 11 2015 Mt Gambier store sale, Nayook South offered 170 steers, 8 months old, by Banemore bulls and achieved a top of $1095 to average $955.
The article describes Banemore's focus on performance recording for genetic progress, which has increased calving ease and meat quality.
Andrew Bell of Millicent, SA pushed the sale limit to $6500 for Banemore's top selling bull in 2014, son Wirruna Banemore Echuca E99. Mr Bell has been a Banemore client for more than 10 years and said Banemore Echuca E99 was great value for money considering his balanced figures, good fat cover and easy doing ability as reporting in the Stock and Land
Banemore welcomed agricultural policy officials from Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies this month who were visiting RMIT University at Hamilton as part of a capacity building training program, funded by AusAid, that considered food security and the development of sustainable agriculture. The first four days were convened in Melbourne. The group then travelled to the University’s rural campus in Hamilton. While visiting our Hereford stud delegates learnt about the history and principles of Breedplan and saw a working illustration of permanent ear tag identification used for food security and safety in the Australian beef industry.

The ‘Completeness of Performance’ herd rating has recently been introduced to assess the quantity of pedigree and performance information that has been submitted to breedplan by individual stud herds.
A simple 1-5 scale star rating is calculated based on the proportion of calves and number of performance traits recorded. Herds with 5 star rating are considered to be gold standard and are recording "complete" performance information submitted to Breedplan. Read more about Breedplan.
Banemore joins two other Hereford herds for 5 star completeness.
