A quality draft of bulls is set to go under the hammer over the next two days during the Droughtmaster National Sale.

There will be 494 lots on offer at CQLX Gracemere with the sale kicking off at 8.30am each morning.

On Monday, the sale hit a top price of $160,000 for 21-month-old homozygous polled bull Rondel Whiskey, snapped up in a three-way buy by the High Country, Nindethana Pastoral and Glenlands D studs.

The Droughtmaster National Sale committee said 97 per cent of the bulls in the draft are registered, with 480 registered bulls and 14 herd bulls catalogued.

"The bulls being offered this year hail from areas as geographically diverse as Home Hill, in the far north, Boonah to the south, and into Western Australia. This diversity will ensure there will be a wide range of genetics to bid on, suitable for all markets," they said.

The Droughtmaster National Sale kicked off at CQLX Gracemere on Monday morning.
