An average of $5164 had stud principals Colin Flanagan and Pat Ebert grinning from ear to ear – a jump of $849 on 2014.
Of the 66 lots offered, 58 sold to $16,500, with three going to interstate Angus studs.
Many were there to see the first of the TeMania Foe F734 sons sell, with 20 selling on the day.
Foe did not disappoint – his lot 45 son Jurrasic J102 topped the sale at $16,500.
The 23-month-old ET calf impressed with his +121 for 600-day weight and +19 for milk. Heading to his new home at Little Meadow Angus, Dardanup, WA, he will be used as a cover bull in an extensive AI program.
Little Meadow stud principal Tony Golding, who bid by phone, said he had been keeping an eye out for a good Foe son for the past 18 months.
“Foe is a good bull phenotypically and has pretty handy figures,” he said. ”But not being able to use him, due to being a DD carrier, we have been waiting for a good son to come up.”
Granite Ridge Jupiter J42 also attracted spirited bidding before being knocked down at $14,000 to The Glen Pastoral, Walwa, Vic. The 950-kilogram KC Haas GPS son sits in the top 1 per cent of the breed for 200, 400, and 600-day weights.
Hugh and Clare Bainger, Hillcrest Pastoral, Avenue Range were yet again the volume buyers of the sale.
They put together eight bulls from $3000 to $5500 for their local commercial operation.
Ian Johnson, Johnson Livestock, picked up four bulls for his Willalooka program
While the Flanagans were very happy with the increased average and five bulls making more than $10,000, most pleasing for them was the demand for the Foe sons. The 20 bulls sired by Foe averaged $6150.
