THE Turihaua Angus yearling bull sale on Wednesday afternoon produced a total clearance sell out, a healthy top price of $14,000 and another healthy rise in the sale average.

The stud put up 25 young bulls for sale and sold the lot for an average price of $7584.

It took just 45 minutes to rattle through the catelogue in the Turihaua sales rostrum, and there was spirited bidding throughout.

“We’re very happy with the result today. They were a very good line of bulls, very even right through the catalogue,” said stud manager Paul Williams.

“We consider these boys our heifer mating specialists and they will keep the buyers on the front foot with their breeding programmes.”

The top priced animal, lot 6, sold to stud for $14,000, and was purchased by Waiterenui Ltd in Hawke’s Bay.

Auctioneer Neville Clark from Carrfields Livestock said the result spoke for itself.

“It was a marvellous sale. A 100 percent clearance, a strong average, that shows the faith in the Turihaua brand and in their cattle.

“They looked very well those bulls, bloody good actually. So, yes, it was a good hardy sale. Good for the stud and good for the Angus breed.”

Paul Williams was rapt on the increased average, up about a thousand dollars on last year. “It’s slowly improving, which is where we want to be.”

Hamish Williams summed it up — “Excellent, very satisfying.”
