The sixth annual sale at Minnie-Vale Charolais on the property “Bexley” recently resulted in 100 percent clearance of the 58 bulls on offer. “It is a pretty good sale if you can get $5,500 for the last bull,” a local stud owner remarked after the last bull was sold.
Co-principal of Minnie-Vale Charolais, Jason Salier said he was happy with the sale which saw the bulls sell for an average of $4758. “The prices show that Minnie-Vale bulls are more than truly affordable,” Jason said.
A big percentage of the bulls brought between four and five thousand dollars, with two bulls sharing the honours of top price.
Lot 4, Minnie-Vale Duke, Interbreed Bull at the Bingara show, and part of the winning pair of bulls at Sydney this year, brought $7,000. Duke carried impressive figures of Fat 7/5, EMA 128, and IMF of 5.3. The other bull to bring $7,000 was Lot 8, Minnie-Vale Camelot. By Gunnadoo Uncle Bill, Camelot has inherited his father’s structural correctness.
The sale was well supported by good commercial clientelle, with both repeat and new buyers represented.
