We had a very successful bull sale in 2018. We managed to sell more bulls at a higher average than 2017 with 40 bulls averaging $10,200. To do this without any pastoral support due to their poor season made this result even more pleasing.
A highlight was the large number of bulls that went to repeat clients. One of these was Lot 4 Days Horizon M028 who sold for $26,000 to Yarram Park. Horizon had been used as a yearling and semen is retained for within herd use. He is in the top 5%for gestation length, EMA, Scrotal size and all indexes.
Second top price was Days Hemisphere M065 the highest indexing bull in the sale selling for $22,000 to repeat clients Saul Investments. He has also been used in the herd.
Other bulls used in the herd as yearlings were:
- Days Benedict M099 selling to Senior Park for $16,000
- Days Homestead M033 selling to the Snuggery for $18,000
- Days Ferrari M080 selling to Mahwallok East for $15,000
A number of clients bought multiple bulls with repeat client Winderadeen Corp. purchasing 10 bulls across the Days-Allendale drafts.
