Rennylea Autumn bull sale held on Tuesday March 13th 2018, Ellerslie Park, Culcairn NSW


 Rennylea Angus held its annual autumn bull at Culcairn on Tuesday 13th March.

In a strong catalogue offering, 82 bulls were offered and sold to a top of $21,000 and an average price of $9,006. This was the highest average price at Rennylea Angus for an autumn auction.

 There was spirited competition from 73 registered buyers plus strong bidding on Auctions Plus. Buyers were present from all states except the Northern Territory.

 Bryan Corrigan opened the sale. In his comments he pointed out that this was the first sale where the data analysis had been done by the world leading ‘Single Step’ method. Single Step combines the information from both the measurements on the animal (phenotypes) and the results of the genomic testing (genotypes). It is the most important change of Breedplan since it was introduced in 1985. Rennylea has been genomically testing its whole drop of cattle for four years and the greater accuracy of the new analysis is an exciting development.

 The top priced bull was Rennylea M1172, by proven carcase sire Rennylea G255. M1172 is a thick, growthy bull, quiet with a great carcase. His performance figures reflected that profile with a heavy grainfed index of $194 in the top 1% of the Angus breed in Australia. He was purchased by Neslo Enterprises from Charters Towers in Queensland.

 The second top priced bull, Rennylea M768 was a very attractive son of Sterita Park J231 out of a wonderful donor cow Rennylea F525. Incredibly well muscled, quiet with a great sheath and temperament, M768’s figures reflected the Rennylea breeding goal, fast growth, moderate maturity pattern, with a good carcase. He was purchased by The Glen Pastoral Company from Walwa, Victoria.

 Volume buyers included Simon Cattle Company from May Downs in Queensland who purchased three lots. KR Reed from Goulburn who purchased four lots, Keswick Rural from Gunning who purchased three lots, the Kelly family from Euroa who purchased three lots.

 Local buyers included Mulgoa Pastoral from Holbrook who took home four bulls, the Barr-Smith family from Holbrook with three bulls and the Hassall family from Holbrook with three bulls.

 Trevor Montgomery from Baddaginnie, Peter Beggs from Mitta, David Parkinson from Table Top, Simon Tooth from Bowna, the Greenhill family from Walwa, the Heise family from Woomargama, John Webb from Manus, John Ley from Tallangatta, the Hearns from Morven, Jervois Pastoral from Tumbarumba, the Star family from Bungowannah all purchased one bull each.

 Ten bulls were purchased through Auctions Plus, four Mullaley, five to Wingham and one to Milton.
