Spring Bull Sale Summary
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
Redcliff Pastoral at Greendale (Grenfell) bought six bulls for an
average of $6,167 with a top of $8,000. The Falls Partnership
at Neville bought five bulls for a top price of $8,000 for an
average of $7,000, while Bradley's Flat Pastoral Company bought
four bulls for an average of $8,000.
Lot 1 K263, a soft well-muscled Broken Bow son with negative birth weight and 200/400 day weights above breed average sold to "Groganville", Yass for $11,000. K263 will be used this spring in the Kenny's Creek stud and over commercial heifers.
From the 71 lots on offer, 67 were sold and the sale grossed $446,957 with a sensible average of $6,671. The auction was managed by Landmark, with Andrew Wishart tallying the bids.
This year we were pleased to welcome seven new bull clients to Kenny's Creek, we look forward to an exciting future together.
