Consideration 3 – Joining

To maximise success during the joining period, you should consider;

1.   Regularly observing bulls throughout the                joining period,

2.   Grouping similar aged bulls,

3.   Controlled mating – placing young bulls             with a breeder herd for no longer than 12           weeks / 3 months (if practical),

4.   Introducing bulls that are 12 – 18 months           of age as optimal

5.   If bulls less than 12 months of age are                joined, they should only be given a lighter          load. A minimum joining percentage of                5% is recommended.

6.   Minimise impact of feral bulls through                 culling,
