Another Angus sale record is broken

January 5, 2016 4:49 pm

2015 has been a year of records in the Angus breed across both the seedstock and commercial markets and in what can only be described as a staggering  result, Coonamble Angus has broken the Angus Australia record average price for stud females offered at auction.

At their recent stud reduction sale, Coonamble Angus, Bremer Bay WA sold 77 PTIC cows for the amazing average of $8,039.

By lot 30 the sale was tracking at the astounding average of $11,417, so it was no surprise at the sales’ conclusion that the record had been achieved.

The previous record average for stud females was set by Millah Murrah, Bathurst NSW, in 2013 when 112 females averaged $7,960.

A top price of $18,000 (a WA state record for Angus females sold at auction), was achieved twice during the sale.

Coonamble F170 was the first to reach this milestone. The March 2009 drop cow, sired by Te Mania Ada A149, was purchased by Gavin Russell of Callanish Angus Stud, Donnybrook WA.
