TURIHAUA Angus kept Bull Week’s total clearance and raised average success rate going yesterday afternoon in what was described as an “almost-electric” sale.

A total of 69 rising two-year-old bulls changed hands for an average of $10,161, along with seven stud in-calf heifers that also sold well.

“We are absolutely humbled that what we are doing here at Turihaua is what you want in your herds,” stud manager Paul Williams told the crowd in the packed on-farm rostrum before the sale started.

“This has been an unreal result for us,” he said afterwards.

The top price of $21,000 was paid for lot 5, bought by the Scott Family from Mangapapa Angus in Kawhia, a bull with high growth and high fertility. Lot 28, deep into the catalogue, sold to stud for $20,000.

Of the bulls sold, 32 brought bids from $10,000 in a range up to the top price.

“It has probably been our most consistent line, borne out by the consistency of the prices through the sale,” Paul said.

“It was also great to get all of them away and I feel the success of the sale was a reflection of optimism in the beef market.”

Auctioneer Bruce Orr said it was a very strong sale.

“It was almost electric, with the consistency of it right the way through.

“There was not a hell of lot of variation in the quality of the bulls. They were very even.”

Mr Orr said total clearance had been the theme of all the sales so far this week and that was great to see.

“Likewise, the lift in averages across all the sales so far.

“This programe here at Turihaua is like no one else’s.

“Their clients come back year after year because the bulls they buy never let them down.”
