In all 89 bulls sold for an 84 per cent clearance rate, to average $4618 with the sale reaching its peak when 26-month-old grey Toy Boy Darius (D) sold for $27,000.
Landmark sale agent Mark Scholes commended the vendors for putting together a good run of commercially focussed bulls in trying times.
While the sale average was down very slightly on last years result, the vendor support for Gold City has remained strong, in fact, we had three of four studs return after a hiatus from selling at the sale or which were offering drafts here for the first time, Mr Scholes said.
ABBA president Matthew McCamley was in attendance at the sale and agreed with Mr Scholes by saying a very good lineup of well presented cattle had been offered.
I suspect buyers at the sale would be very happy with the quality of the bulls they took home for the prices they paid, Mr McCamley said.
