WA’S record-breaking bull selling season went into overdrive on Wednesday at the Coonamble Angus on-property bull sale at Bremer Bay, with records being smashed across the board.
The highly-successful sale ensured the line “records are made to be broken” rang true as is overtook the records set at the Koojan Hills Angus sale on Monday.
In the sale the Davis family offered and sold 62 bulls for a gross of $705,000 and a thumping average of $11,370.
The $11,370 average is believed to be the second best ever recorded at Angus bull sale across Australia and the highest sale average ever achieved at a sale in WA, breaking the $10,788 record set at the Koojan Hills sale on Monday.
But it wasn’t only the average which created a new slice of history in the State, so too did the top price.
Prices hit a high of $26,500 in the sale for Coonamble K159, to set what is believed to be a new State auction record for the Angus breed.
The upstanding ET-bred sire, which was by Coonamble Elevator E11 and out of Coonamble F193, was purchased by Gatti Bros, Albany.
It had EBVs of +55, +102 and +138 for 200, 400 and 600-day weights and +82 for carcase weight which ranked it in the top one per cent of the breed.
A full report on the sale will be in next week’s Farm Weekly.
