TE MANIA Angus sold 113 bulls to average $8663 at its sale at Mortlake, Victoria, on Wednesday.

The standout sale saw a full clearance of 113 bulls to a modest high of $24,000 and the stud's best-ever average, an increase of $766 on the 2012 sale which averaged $7897 for 145 bulls.

NSW buyers made the trek south to acquire the top-priced bull, Te Mania Gothenburg G950.

Boggabri's Kansas stud teamed up with Crosby's Angus, Forbes, and Hard Hat Angus, Dubbo, as the successful purchasers of the Tuwharetoa Regent D145 son, which sold for $50,000 at the Tuwharetoa dispersal - an Australian record at the time.

Eight sons of Te Mania Emperor, which sold for $91,000 in 2011, averaged $8125, while Te Mania Berkley's eight sons averaged $11,875
