Autumn Bull Sale 2022

43/47 Bulls sold to a top of $17,000 & an average of $10,186.

A solid, consistent sale with clients bidding hard and fast on the bulls they wanted to secure. When both clients and stud principals are thrilled with the results, you know you have hit the true market sweet-spot. Surrounded by familiar faces, the atmosphere in the sales barn was fun and festive-like as everyone settled into the rhythm of the annual Sale-O.

Top price bull selling for $17,000 was MERLEWOOD UP RIVER R126 (LOT 32) who sold to long-term, loyal foundation client Nicole White. We thank the White Family for their continuous confidence in our breeding program and sharing their passion for our breeding program. Back in 2019 Nicole shared top price bull spot with Jamie Quinnlan of Elders.

Close behind was neighbour, farmer and friend Barry Svenson who purchased MERLEWOOD RAINDANCE R125 (LOT29) $16,000 and MERLEWOOD COWBOY UP R112 (LOT 44) $15,000. We enjoy many a cattle conversation with Barry and we never run out of things to talk about when it comes to black angus cattle.

We welcome new clients from King Island. Tim Schuuring of King Island Beef who purchased MERLEWOOD COMMAND R9 (LOT 17) $14,000 and MERLEWOOD COMMAND R105 (LOT 35) $14,000, Richard Sutton of Caroona Pastoral who purchased MERLEWOOD STELLAR R52 (LOT23) $10,000 and Zander Dean who purchased MERLEWOOD STELLAR R100 (LOT 34) $10,000. Well bought gentlemen.

It was heartwarming to see so many new faces today as well as so many return clients. We thank you all for helping us make our sixth sale sensational – without you all it would remain a pipe dream.

Time now for a cold drink and then rest before Monday comes around and we start the process of getting ready for our seventh annual autumn bull sale. In the meantime keep the photos coming and the social media messages – we love staying in touch with you all throughout the year.
A huge big thank you once again – from our hearts to yours.
