A new national all breeds record for a bull sold at auction was broken last week when Texas Thunderstruck T383 was knocked down for $360,000 at the Texas Angus Bull Sale.

The twelve month old son of Poss Rawhide was purchased by Robert Mackenzie, from Macka’s Angus, Salt Ash NSW.

The vendors, Ben and Wendy Mayne described Thunderstruck in their catalogue as ‘something very special’.

‘The style and stature of this young sire is something you have to see for yourself. Presence, power, performance and profitability is the perfect way to describe this up and coming young Angus sire with a wonderful balance of all traits’.

The all breeds record was previously set in 2017 for Brahman bull NCC Justified who sold for $325,000.

The record for an Angus bull sold at auction was last broken in 2021 when Millah Murrah Rocket Man R38 was sold for $280,000 to Brooklana Angus at the Millah Murrah Angus bull sale.

This result also surpasses the record for a yearling Angus bull sold at auction, which had also been set at the 2021 Millah Murrah Angus bull sale, with Millah Murrah Rolls Royce R275 selling for $110,000 to Heart Angus & Hallmark Angus (NZ).

The overall result for Texas saw them sell 252 bulls for a complete clearance, with an average of $16,764 and a gross of $4,224,500.
