Coolabunia Saleyard

by Aussie Land & Livestock

The Coolabunia sale on Tuesday afternoon saw very strong results overall, despite the absence of one of the regular export buyers.

Sale results:

  • Cows sold strongly, with store cows starting around $2.26/kg and ranging up to $2.90/kg for better
    condition beasts
  • Bulls sold in the $2.50/kg to $3.10/kg range
  • Store heifers ranged from $3.50/kg to $4.30/kg
  • Steers sold in the $3.80/kg to $4.60/kg range, with very strong competition

Steers and heifers at the sale were going to local paddocks, or back to the Downs, southern border regions and NSW.

The sale also saw a good run of cows and calves from a vendor who has had to sell their property due to illness.

Young cows sold at $1700 PTIC Reg Tag and Blue Tag, while their calves – which had been weaned – sold for $1050 (i.e $2750 per total unit).

This was a very happy result for the vendor – the cows were PTIC’d back to a Charolais bull.

Upcoming sales:

  • Bunya Bull Sale is on at Coolabunia on September 5 at 11:00am
  • Fat and Store Sale at Coolabunia on September 8 at 12:00 noon
  • Special Fat and Store Sale at Coolabunia September 10 at 9:00am
  • Special Female Sale at SBLX Murgon Saleyards on September 25 at 10:00am
