LOYAL buyers at the Bundaleer Murray Grey Inaugural Production sale showed their support for the stud when 70pc of the 20 bulls offered sold under the hammer to a top of $5500 at the on-property sale, Karridale, last Thursday.

The sale was all about presenting well put together, thick, young sires that have the outlook and arithmetic to do the job for stud and commercial producers.

At the end of the sale there were smiles on the faces of Bundaleer principals Sam and Cliff Owen.

After 30 registered buyers attended, 14 of the 20 bulls sold to a $3500 average under the guidance of the team in green.

Landmark Margaret River agent Jock Embry said to have a near-total clearance was an exceptional effort for the Owen family at their first on-property sale.

"The sale was extremely well supported by long-term Bundaleer clients," Mr Embry said.

"The presentation and quality of cattle on offer were very good."

It was an upstanding young sire, and the last bull to be offered, which commanded the most attention with bids flying from all directions and the hammer finally falling at $5500.

Sired by Bundaleer Cash Flow Y6 and out of Bundaleer Lolita W25, Bundaleer Castro C66 had a 39cm scrotal circumference, high 200, 400 and 600-day weights of +24, +33 and +47 and a top EMA figure of +1.9.

The young, medium framed, June calf exhibited terrific length, structural soundness and a sirey outlook.

This was acknowledged by Larussa Holdings, Gingin, who dug deep to pay $5500 for the bull.
