While many lots at 2017’s Euro bull sale were passed in only to be sold later, Tenterfield Simmental stud Sixpence Park enjoyed a full clearance and top prices.
First lot of the day was bought by Celia Mackay of Deepwater for $16,000, for cross-breeding with her Santa Gertrudis cows.
Amie Penny of “Warratoo” at Goondiwindi went home with two Sixpence Park bulls and a heifer.
She secured lot 2 for $10,500 and then lot 5 for $5,500 considering the latter a bargain as she rates both lots to be of similar quality.
After issues with bull temperament in the past she feels she on the right track with these two.
Sixpence Park’s Linda Martin said the stud saw a number of repeat buyers from last year’s sale, pleased with the progeny now on the ground from 2016 purchases.
