Well, what a lovely day weather wise to have our 10th On Property sale at “Brooksby”. The sun was out and our bulls were in good sale condition. We have always tried to present them in what we call ‘good working order’, as some of our Queensland clients like to take the bulls home and put them straight out with their cows.
Buyers from 3 states travelled to the sale. They came from Mortlake in Victoria, Gelantipy and Buchan in the Snowy’s, right up through NSW and then as far north as Taroom and Wandoan in Central Queensland. Many where repeat buyers which is very encouraging that they feel safe in buying our bulls.
Glenwarrah Herefords Sale Results
We had 28 Glenwarrah Hereford Bulls bulls on offer which presented as a great even team for the sale day. The sale kicked off with spirited bidding right from Lot 1 – Glenwarrah Lockington K18 (son of Straithleigh Olgive F594 purchased in 2013 at the Strathleigh Hereford Stud’s Annual bull sale for $22,000). Eventually Chris Lisle of Tummel Herefords of Walcha secured Glenwarrah Lockington K18 for $14,000.
As well as our commercial buyers several of our bulls went into studs down south.
Valley Vista Herefords purchased Lot 13 for $11,000
Karoonda Herefords purchased Lot 14 for $9,000
The sale was very even all the way through with the Herefords averaging $7185.19 with a total clearance.
Brooksby Angus Sale Results
Then this was followed on with a strong line up of 24 Brooksby Angus bulls. The topped priced bull was ‘Brooksby New Day L160’, ( son of Booroomooka New Day G648 which we are using strongly here at Brooksby) which also topped with $14,000 going to the commercial herd of Ian and Gail Ellis of Pinkett. Ian and Gail have been buying our bulls for 2 years and have always paid top dollar for our blood lines.
