The Circle 8 30th Anniversary Bull and Female Sale, Marulan NSW provided a number of reasons to celebrate with 78 heifers achieving a full clearance for a record-breaking average of $20,950.
The females offered represented the entire drop of S heifer calves, after culling, bred at Circle 8, with each heifer offered fully parent verified.
This result eclipsed the previous record average for Angus females sold at auction held by Millah Murrah Angus when they sold 234 females for an average of $ 13,709 at the Millah Murrah Female sale in 2017.
Hitting the top price of $140,000 and what is a record for the highest price unjoined registered Angus heifer under 18 months, was Circle 8 Rosebud S669, purchased by Robert Mackenzie from Mackas Angus, Salt Ash NSW.
This record has stood since 2006, when The Grange A180 sold for $38,000 to Alpine Angus, Porepunkah, Vic and Vermont Angus, Penshurst, Vic.
