The $32,000 top price bull, Telpara Hills Kenworth 394L4 with vendor Stephen Pearce and purchaser Brad Comiskey representing the Comiskey and Couper families, Lunar Brangus, Emerald.

Overall the bull sale held on the second day grossed $1.18 million with a $9147 average and a 93 per cent clearance.

Top price was neck and neck with two vendors running a very close race with the Pearce family’s Telpara Hills Brangus taking out top honours on the day with Telpara Hills Kenworth 392L4, a polled sire by MC Real Deal 541R3 (P), making the $32,000 high.

Kenworth found a new home with the Comiskey and Couper families, Lunar Brangus, Emerald.

Close behind at $30,000 was Pheasant Creek Ludwig L035, a poll sire holding predominantly Australian Brangus bloodlines including Bonox, Coolabah and Greendale, offered by Brad and Nicole Saunders who went to Ian Francis, Cedar Valley Brangus, Tingoora.

The strength of the sale continued with Bruce and Leanne Woodard and family reaching a top of $28,000 for Bonox 960, another poll sire in high demand and being snapped up by Lindsay and Fiona Barlow, Triple B Brangus, Dingo.

Next in line was another stand out lot providing plenty of interest in the sale, Diamond Valley Keen Edge 468L2 (P) (ET), a CB Final Cut 924x son and winner of the grand champion Brangus bull at this year’s Queensland Royal Show.

Keen Edge will now reside in Central Queensland with Ryan Holzwart, Western Force Brangus, Emerald who paid $26,000 for a three quarter share and full possession.

The highest average for a vendor on the day selling more than three bulls went to Brad and Nicole Saunders, Pheasant Creek who sold six bulls to average $17,167.

Volume buyers saw bulls go to as far as Western Australia with Great Northern Cattle Company taking home nine bulls to Yakka Munga Station via Derby to average $7000.

While Hacon and Sons also took home nine bulls to their property Buckingham Downs, Dajarra to average $7889.
