Welcome to the 32nd Annual Millah Murrah Angus Bull Sale.
The bulls detailed in the following pages come from 51
years of breeding dedicated to type and function. We
have always prioritised muscle expression and easy
finishing ability, while early life vigour and maternal
attributes are paramount.
After our record-breaking cow sale of 2017, the stud
is approaching “full swing” again, with the first sons
of some superb young breeders featured in this sale.
They have grown up through an extraordinary sequence
of seasons. “Goonamurrah” now looks the best we
have ever seen it, but things were not like this for
most of the bulls’ lives. The genetics must be credited
for the wonderful fleshing and type consistency they
The bulls sell in three age groups as always. Over 50
of them are genuinely suitable for use over heifers.
Similarly, there are dozens of power bulls to generate
the improved weaner weight and cow function
associated with the Millah Murrah brand, while many
have the versatility to fit both roles.
We think on type it is the most even draft of bulls
we have presented, and confidently describe
it as the best back end to a sale we have ever
With the likely increase in unsighted purchases
this year, we have tried to make the catalogue as
comprehensive as possible. Many of the bulls are
pictured, as well as dams and grand dams, with plenty
of background comment. The major reference sires
(which, as always, have all been inspected first-hand)
are described in detail at the rear of the book. And
more information will become available as the sale
date draws near.
COVID-19 is an ever-changing matter and we will
adapt to whatever situation presents at sale time. We
are registered as a COVID safe business and have
implemented every contingency to ensure the sale
can proceed without disruption, including a couple
of novel innovations from the kids! In keeping with
our ideals, we aim for “best practice” with respect to
COVID. Please see page 2 “Sale Day Visitation and
Inspection Protocols” for more information and be
assured that the health of visitors is our priority.
Prospective buyers are welcome to arrange a pre-sale
inspection of the bulls. For those wishing to operate
remotely (on-line or by phone), current video of many
sale lots and a comprehensive 25-point structure &
phenotype description will be available at our website
in the week leading up to the sale. Most importantly, if
you cannot make the sale and wish to review the bulls
over the phone, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Despite the “new normal”, it is business as usual at
“Goonamurrah”, and we hope you will join us at the
sale. If you do attend, we invite you to share a drink
and something to eat at the conclusion of the auction.
