DRILLHAM-based studmasters Andrew, Anna, David and Jill Raff of Raff Angus set a Queensland record auction price of $30,000 at their annual female production sale on Monday.

The $30,000 record-breaking Angus female and former Sydney Royal grand champion female, Raff Burnette B126, was sold to John Toohey and Gillian Fahle, Murra Angus, Walwa, Victoria.

She was in-calf to successful sire, Raff Dictator D364.

Raff Burnette has a blue-blood pedigree being out of Raff Burnette U108, which is a full sister to Raff Ultimate U27, a bull which sold to Andrew Smith, Tieyon Station, Alice Springs, for the $30,000 Queensland private sale record money in 2002.

Mr Toohey, a repeat buyer for many years, said he was delighted to acquire such a high-profile Angus female for his next flush program.
