2020 Bull Sale Wrap Up
A result that is taking a little time to comprehend - heartfelt thanks to our supporters.
78 bulls sold for 100% clearance.
Top price was $60,000 for Lot 75, Quixote Q96, a 17-month son of S Chisum 255. He sold to a syndicate of Wonalee Simmentals, JT Angus & ABS Australia, with semen available this spring. Tipping the scales at 836kg in a 6-frame score, and the youngest bull in the 18-month section, Q96 had exploded over winter to present within 50kg of the heaviest bulls in his group.
Quixote was the 1st natural calf of the stunning Brenda N8. She is a Klooney daughter, boasting Loch Up’s mum as her grand dam and the legendary Brenda Y33 a couple of lines further back. Two ET brothers of the sale topper sold to average $33,000, giving Brenda N8 an awesome start to her breeding career!
The sale average of $20,384 was a new record for the breed, bettering the $17,261 mark set at Millah Murrah in 2019.
The highlight sire performance came from S Chisum 255 with 7 sons at the staggering average of $31,429.
Kruse Time K400 had 7 sons in the sale, selling to a top of $42,000 twice for a $24,000 average. Like the sale topper, the two high sellers in the Kruse Time offering were both from Klooney 1st calvers.
His status as a maternal heavyweight was set in stone, with the stunning return of 14 sons from Klooney dams averaging a mind blowing $26,857.
Bulls sold to all mainland states, with 90% going to return customers.
