Saturday’s Bunya Bull sale at the Coolabunia Saleyards had a 100 per cent clearance rate for the 56 bulls up for sale, a result described by the organising committee as “the best yet”.
The sale produced an average price of $8795 per beast with a top price – $20,000 – going to the first lot of the day.
All up, the sale generated $492,500 for the 20 vendors who put lots up for auction.
It was attended by 82 registered card bidders and a further 25 registered online bidders.
The sale was organised by the Bunya Bull Sale committee, and GDL and Aussie Land & Livestock were the sale’s agents.
“It was a really strong sale and I don’t think any of the vendors will go home unhappy,” Bunya Bull Sale committee chair Graham Brown said.
“This is our seventh sale since taking over the Bunya Bull Sale and its been our best yet.
“It’s also a credit to our vendors in the way they presented the bulls here for the buyers.
“82 registered buyers … that is outstanding.”
Corey Evans from Aussie Land & Livestock agreed.
“A lot of bulls sold over $10,000 with many others between $5000-$7000,” he said
“There was definitely a lot of value on offer.”
