Buying bulls is easy, buying bulls that work, perform and are worth their salt is not so easy. ALZU Beefmasters’ mission is to take all the guesswork out of it by providing breeders with performance-recorded, commercially oriented Beefmasters that possess the proven Beefmaster genetics.

On 18 July the Alzu auction ring was packed, where top quality Beefmasters were offered at their 15th production auction. Alzu’s top quality animals have attracted many. Buyers and auction attendees were welcomed on a cold winter morning with a syrup-sweet pancake and a steaming hot cup of coffee.
