BEST AVERAGE: Sam and Gemma Hain were ‘stoked’ with the outcome of their rising two-year-old bull sale on-farm at Pehiri yesterday, with a new high average price across the 26 bulls sold.
There was an active bench of enthusiastic buyers at the sale.

The annual bull sale season in Tairawhiti got off to an inspiring start at Hain Herefords at Pehiri yesterday afternoon and the Hains produced their best-ever R2 bulls sales average.

They sold 26 of the 29 rising two-year-olds put up for auction on-farm in front of a lively bench of buyers.

Seven of them sold for $10,000 and more, with a high price of $11,500 paid for lot 30, which was advanced to the early part of the catalogue.

He was purchased by Ngapuke Ltd, the Jefferis family from Taumarunui.

The animal was described as “a bull with an awful lot of presence. He’s a front paddock sire with a lovely amount of growth about him.”

The sale average of $7826 compared to $6100 in the 2018 sale.

“It was our best-ever average and we are stoked” Gemma Hain said afterwards.

“It’s awesome to have the support for what we do here, and the confidence the buyers have in our bulls is reflected in the prices.”

Her husband Sam said they were “rapt” to produce such a big lift in their overall sales average.

“We are also very pleased to have had an almost total clearance.

“We’re bloody happy, and given this is our most stressful day of the year, we’re glad it’s behind us now for another year.”

Auctioneer Neville Clark, from Carrfields New Zealand, said the sale result spoke for itself.

“The bulls really shifted well, and people are obviously happy with the product.

“It’s certainly been a very positive start to the sales season and augers well for what is to come later this month.”

Neville said the Hains’ lineup were certainly presented well.

“They looked inviting.”

Sam Hain said in his welcome their bulls had come through a “wonderful” summer and autumn, and their condition reflected that excellent season.

“Thanks to my wife, my parents and all our other helpers.

“It’s been a great sale for us.”
