ONCE again the Monterey Murray Grey and Angus sale hit the national benchmark for the bull-selling s

It is no wonder the sale continues to gain momentum each year.

With an outstanding sale in 2006 which would be hard to surpass, and producers experiencing a horrendous season in the past 12 months, it was a fantastic result given the sale again peaked beyond the highs set last year.

The $22,000 top price tag for the sale was notable in itself.

It narrowly missed equalling the state auction record for the breed of $22,500 ­ achieved by Tullibardine at the equivalent sale in 2004.

The Murray Greys were highly praised with 78 of Monterey and Tullibardine¹s combined offering of 85 19-24 month-old bulls selling to the sale high, while realising a whopping gross of $430,000 and a very respectable average of $5513.

But starring in the show was the 100pc clearance of the Monterey Angus offering to an impressive high of $12,500, setting a new record for the stud at auction.

The large turnout of buyers ensured the day would result in a healthy success, with a number of people travelling vast distances to purchase their selection.

There was not a spare seat around the sale ring.

All up there were 119 of 127 Murray Grey and Angus bulls sold under the hammer to an average of $5450.

This consisted of 60 Monterey Murray Greys aged between 19-24 months, of which 53 sold to the day¹s $22,000 top, a gross of $291,250 and an average of $5495.

Of the same age and breed, Tullibardine yarded and sold its 25 bulls to an $8500 top, $138,750 gross and $5550 average.

Of the younger Murray Grey bulls, Monterey presented 12 aged 16-19 months of which all except one sold to a high of $6500, $49,750 gross and $4523 average.
