Until 2017, we had sold our bulls via private treaty. In 2016, an Ayrvale General G18 son sold for $10,000. It was also in 2016 that we made our first foray into AuctionsPlus with two more General sons selling to an average of $9,500.
In 2017, we held our first on-farm sale. It was only a small offering to begin with and 12 two year old bulls sold to an average of $5,500. We hold our annual spring bull sale on the Friday immediately after the Henty Machinery Field Days. This year’s sale will be held on Friday, 25 September.
2020 saw us take part in the inaugural Riverina Autumn Bull Sale. This combined event was held at the Livestock Marketing Centre in Wagga Wagga on Friday 20 March. Eight HBR parent verified bulls sold to a top of $6500 and an average of $4750.
The sires of this spring’s calf drop include G A R Phoenix, G A R Ashland and EF Compement.
