In a bull selling season that is witnessing Angus breeders reach record on property averages and commercial prices hitting all-time highs, it is unsurprising that records continue to fall.
The latest record to be beaten was for an APR bull sold at auction, with Lot 10 at the recent Coffin Creek Bull Sale selling for $70,000. Coffin Creek S100, a sixteen month old son of Milwillah Nardoo N155 was sold to Neil Bolte, Wing Vee Pastoral, Hargraves.
The record was previously set in 2021 when Millah Murrah Angus sold Millah Murrah Paratrooper R250 to Grant & Lisa Norman, Spring Ridge New South Wales for $55,000.
Overall Coffin Creek sold 52 Angus bulls for an average of $19,807.
As the sale season continues there have been some phenomenal results across the Angus industry, July saw Texas Angus set an industry record for the highest sale gross when they sold 209 Angus bulls for an average of $28,055 and a gross of $5.864 million.
Booroomooka Angus were not far behind, with their August sale seeing 241 bulls clear for an average of $21,987 and gross of $5.299 million.
Angus bulls have also hit six figures on a number of occasions this season:
- $190,000 – Knowla So Right S48 purchased by Sprys Angus & Cottage Creek Angus, at the Knowla Livestock Sale
- $110,000 – Waitara GK Safekeeping S56, purchased by Merridale Angus, Crawford Angus, Cascade Angus and Little Meadows Angus, at the Waitara Angus Bull Sale
