Stud Female Sale Summary
The interest in our complete dispersal of our Autumn calving herd exceeded our expectations prior to the sale. On sale day we had a terrific cross section of clients from all parts of Australia. With many years of breeding in these females it was great to see so many of them go into productive and quality herds. The sale has been a great confirmation for us on our program and we are already looking forward to the Spring bull sale in 2017.
Top priced Female
Kenny's Creek Wilcoola J228 was sold for $18,000 to KO Angus Stud, Kangaloon. J228 is a broody, long-bodied donor cow that has been influential in our ET program with 32 fertilised eggs. A daughter of Werner Westward and PTIC to JMB Traction, we are looking forward to following her performance at KO Angus. J228 was part of the 47 Autumn calving PTIC cows that averaged $4670.
Top priced Cow & Calf
Kenny's Creek Mittagong K228 sold with a very attractive Mentor K2 heifer calf for $13,500. Purchsed by Anthony Pisa, Absolute Angus, this cow has a great future ahead of her. K228 is a Mohnen Long Distance daughter with plenty of stretch, style and milking ability.
Top priced heifer
A very strong genetic package in Kenny's Creek Bara L8. Sired by EF Complement and PTIC to Werner Westward, this heifer has the pedigree to make a real impact. Sold to Bepiti Pty. Ltd. at Marulan for $10,000.
All the 108 lots offered were sold to a total average of $5097. The breakdown across the sale was very positive and consistent. The 19 spring calving cow and calf units averaged $7263 with a top of $13,500. The remaining 42 joined heifers sold to an average of $4595 and topped at $10,000. These figures represent the current strength of the cattle economy and many breeders' profitable year off the land.

On Wednesday 7 September a loyal following of Kenny's Creek clients travelled to Boorowa for our 27th Spring Bull Sale. It was a rare sunny Spring day in Boorowa, in the midst of an exceptionally wet season. The turnout was best represented by commercial Angus breeders from NSW and Victoria.
Bulls sold to a top of $12,000 twice with the first, Lot 26 L56, an S Chisum son, bought by Leawood Angus in Victoria for his weight for age, phenotype and muscle. The second, Lot 34 L36 is a Complement son bought by Matt and Lucy Godlee who will use him to breed replacement heifers in their commercial herd.
A number of clients purchased multiple lots. Craig Lindsay from
