GREAT SALES: Sarah and Jessica Burpee, Drayton Park stud, Tintinara had one of their most successful field days selling 40 PTIC heifers to $1700 and 10 bulls to $3500 from the Fleurieu Peninsula to the Lower South East.THE biggest week on SA’s beef calendar – the 2015 Ruralco Insurance SA Beef Field Days – has again been proclaimed a resounding success.
Recent cattle price rises were expected to take 12 months to flow through to the seedstock industry, but most of the 72 participating studs from the Mid North to the Lower South East reported a steady stream of visitors over the four days from across SA, NSW, Vic and NT.
For more than 40 years the field days have remained a great prelude of the outstanding genetics set to be offered at upcoming on-property auctions.
SA Beef president Jean Evans said many studs reported stronger interest than the previous couple of years with strong signs of improved returns in the beef industry.
“A terrific lot of people were getting downhearted with the industry but they are now hoping that there will be a turnaround and lift in prices even if the season isn’t really going with us at the moment,” she said.
“At the end of the day the commercial producer is the stud breeder’s customer so if your customer isn’t making any money it is hard to make money yourself.”
Volume sales included Glentanner Angus, Mount Gambier, which sold 10 of its 14 bulls to $4500 twice, while Duck Island, Keith, sold eight of its 23 black composites by mid morning to $6000 twice.
Stud females were also keenly sought with Bottlesford Murray Greys, Tungkillo, having a total clearance of their 21 PTIC females, and Callendale Simmentals, Naracoorte, dispersed their stud herd of 40 PTIC females, selling them just prior to the field days.
