THE Farm Weekly-WALSA WA Supreme bull sale on Friday recorded roller coaster results where prices reached a Blonde d'Aquitaine breed national record high of $14,250, however buying support for some breeds was limited.

Thirty two studs representing nine breeds offered 136 bulls with 98 bulls selling under the hammer to average $4140.

This was a $402 lift on last year's result however this was with a reduced catalogue number and clearance.

In 2008 160 bulls were offered and 108 sold to average $3738.

Once the sale swung onto the Euro breeds, the 137 registered buyers found a second wind after a subdued start.

This was kickstarted by the run of Blonde d'Aquitaine bulls especially the Amaroo stud, Mundijong.

Seven bulls averaged $7321 headed by Amaroo's bull Banya Commonwealth C22 knocked down for $14,250 to Phil Tomlinson of Albany.

The early maturing bull that combined muscle and softness, was born on May 22 2007 to Strathbally Zephyr and out of Banya Zaconia.

This was the second consecutive year the Amaroo stud has topped the Supreme sale.

The Charolais breed had another solid sale clearing all bar two bulls from the team of 54 to top at $9750 and average $4351, a marked $851 improvement on last year's average.

The sale kicked off with the run of British-breed bulls but across the board these failed to attract competitive support required for a solid clearance and notable values.

Buyers were extremely selective through this section but they did raise the bar on the better quality lots.

The Yallaroo Hereford stud topped the section with a bull making $4500 and the stud cleared six of its seven bulls offered.
