Sensational Second Annual Autumn Bull Sale for Merlewood Angus


With 30/34 bulls selling to a top of $11,000 and average of $4,900 we were happy and smiling after our second annual autumn bull sale – which we think sure was sensational in current market conditions.


The weather was optimal for on-farm viewing of the bulls. Local butcher Craig Young once again supplied Merlewood Angus’ infamous Lorne breakfast sausages and Mirboo North Rotary cooked and served our complimentary breakfast on the day.


We were thrilled and delighted to see a couple of fellow seed stock producers at our second sale. “To have other seedstock producers interested in our breeding program and consider our bulls to be potential stud sires at this early stage in our journey is magnificent and makes us very proud of our achievements.”


Top priced bull in the autumn bull sale Lot 23 Merlewood Jarcevo M127 sold to Anvil Angus of Alexandria.  With four clients that we know of bidding on this bull, competition on the day was hot for this bull. One client said afterwards “My pockets just weren’t deep enough to take him home – my limit was $10k.”


With muscle in all the right places Merlewood Angus have been extremely pleased with their Te Mania Jarcevo offspring and believe that this sire will continue to produce progeny that is well suited to the Gippsland region for years to come. Mating him with the best of their females, Merlewood Angus are extremely pleased with both the females and bulls that have been produced to date. Watch out for more Merlewood Jarcevo bulls at our Third Annual On-Farm Bull Sale next year.


In addition to new clients Daniel and Anne Marie were happy to see their regular repeat buyers and volume clients attending their sale.


John Montelone of Mount Angus, Trafalgar was delighted to secure both the Merlewood Heirloom bulls that he had his eye on.






Michael Bracecamp of Berrys Creek who along with his brother Nigel Bracecamp sells to the bullock market purchased a Merlewood Heirloom son too.









Peter Dykes of Dollar and the Whiteleys of Mirboo were unable to make sale day but being foundation clients of Merlewood Angus purchased the bull of their choice on the day via their stock agent.


It was great to see so many clients on the day – even those of you who we knew didn’t need a bull this year, but you still came along to support us on sale day.

We really appreciate this as we know how time poor everyone is these days.

With many new volume buyer clients attending from Bairnsdale and as far away as Everton this gives us great feedback and confidence in our breeding program.



Already the Merlewood Angus team are looking forward to

our Third Annual Autumn Bull Sale

and we are hoping for a terrific turnout.

Mark the date in your diary FRIDAY 22 MARCH 2019.
