Well after a very cold day in Perth (we now have a little drizzle and snow), I’m happy to report a good day’s trading. Angus bulls overall sold well, with five selling for 10,000gns and as reported earlier the McLaren family had yet another electric sale selling for 30,000gns – a new breed female record.
As for the Shorthorns, bulls were disappointing, many didn’t sell and only topped at 4000gns. However, females were a little more exciting topping at 5000gns.
So for all you breed enthusiasts, here’s a list of top prices from the day……….Angus males:
