Sale comments: Solid sale underpinned by strong commercial support. Bulls sold into purebred herds, but increasingly crossbreeding situations to be used over Santa and Brahman cross cows.
Buyers seeking bulls with strong carcases, positive calving ease and moderate birth weight. Drought affected clearance, only 2 bulls sold into NSW this year. Overall a good sale for the widespread dry conditions.
