The commercial females kicked off the sale to a flying start on the Monday morning, with a full clearance of the 313 females offered, averaging $679 and topping at $1325. Alex Dodson of Southwell Brangus received the top price of $1325/head for his pen of 8 commercial Brangus heifers, which were purchased by new members to the Brangus Association, David and Prue Bondfield of Palgrove Brangus.

The strong demand continued into the afternoon with the registered females achieving another full clearance of the 36 females offered for an average of $2230 and to a top of $8000. Megan and Neville Hanson, Oaklands Brangus, purchased the top priced registered female, Bonox B527. The 12 month old, polled, black Brangus heifer sired by Bonox 434 was offered by Bruce and Leanne Woodard, Bonox Brangus.

Following the success of the females and the ‘Welcome the World” Semen Sale on Monday (click here to read more on the Semen Sale) anticipation was high around the bull pens on the Tuesday morning. Athough clearance was down, compared to the females, with 95 bulls sold of the 113 offered, the bulls returned a pleasing result, averaging at $6010 and going to a top of $20,000. The top priced bull, Bonox 488 was once again offered by Bruce and Leanne Woodard, Bonox Brangus, wrapping up a very successful sale for the stud.  The 33 month old, polled, black bull sired by Bonox 335 was purchased by Lindsay and Fiona Barlow, Triple B Brangus, who will use the bull to breed future stud sires. 

The second top priced bull, Telpara Hills Bryan 236D1, caused great excitement amongst the crowd being the first bull of the day to go under the hammer and making an impressive $16,000 for first time vendors the Pearce Family, Telepara Hills Brangus. Bryan, a 30 month old, polled, black bull sired by Singletary of Brinks 675R and ranks in the top 5% of the breed for all the BREEDPLAN growth and milk traits, was purchase by Ross Olive from Westgrove, Gogango.
