A DRAFT of 35 outcross angus bulls will be offered as part of Colin Keevers and Lisa Martin for the 24th annual Alumy Creek bull sale.

The annual sale will be held undercover at the couple's Tenterfield property, Coldawinda on Saturday, June 14, from 1pm.

Mr Keevers said this year's draft had been selected on consistency with well-muscled sires, with length and thickness plus structural soundness and history of low birth weight progeny for calving ease.

The southern cattleman said the growing popularity of outcross angus genetics hinged on their profitability, along with the fact they added market flexibility for bos indicus or euro breeds.

"Again leading the draft is terrific sire TC Aberdeen with 10 sons on offer," Mr Keevers said.

"They combine added length of spine with big growth, calving ease, carcase and maternal performance.

"Aberdeen sired the 2012 Australian record priced bull at $110,000 and semen is no longer available.

"So these bulls represent the last chance to source this bloodline to add kilos and quality."

Fourteen powerful sons of new first Australian season sire Connealy Final Product and his son MCATL Pure Product will also be on offer.

Mr Keevers said they were heavy muscled bulls with super thickness, tremendous hindquarter and proven high feed efficiency.

"They also are positive fat bulls: something producers are beginning to appreciate for their easy finishing capacity and increased cow rebreed rates, something very important this last season," he said.

Other sires represented in the 2014 draft include SAV Pioneer and Connealy Impression.

Mr Keevers said a challenging past year had highlighted the benefits and versatility of the angus breed.

"Producers have seen the need to have market options for stock and outcross angus genetics offer the ability to add weight early and finish in the paddock or feedlot."

Lunch will be provided at the annual sale, but buyers and onlookers are advised to bring their own coat.

The bulls can be inspected on June 10 from 11am-2pm or from 10am on the sale day June 14.
