The Red Angus sire GK Red Kulcha Shoc K23 offered by Gavin and Kirrily Iseppi’s G and K Livestock, Dalby topped the Queensland Red Angus Power of Red sale at $16,000.
The reigning 2016 Brisbane Royal Show grand champion Red Angus bull, GK Red Kulcha Shoc K23 was bought by Michael and Kay O’Neill, Bottle Tree Blonde d’Aquitaines, Kilkivan.
Mr O’Neill first set eyes on GK Red Kulcha Shoc K23 at the Ekka and will join him to his stud Blonde d’Aquitaine heifers.
“These two crosses marry very well and we will sell the top bull calves as crossbred sires and retain the heifers,” Mr O’Neill said.
Putting a solid floor in the market were Andrew and Jennifer Youngberry, Bantry, Pittsworth, who finished with four bulls, two cow and calf units, and seven heifers. They paid $9000 for Rosemullion Red Kyle offered by Heather Davies, Rosemullion Red Angus, Goomburra.
The Youngberrys paid to $10,000 for the quality cow and bull calf at-foot package GK Red 26 Dina J19 offered by Gavin and Kirrily Iseppi. Mr Youngberry runs a Santa Gertrudis/Angus commercial herd and will introduce Red Angus genetics. He recently registered the Bantry Red Angus stud prefix to get his grandchildren interested in breeding and showing stud cattle.
Also paying to $9000 twice were Reg and Jackie Carlyle, Wonga Hills, Chinchilla, who secured Boonyouin Kapital K9 and Boonyouin Kennedy K69, both offered by Maryanne Kearney, Kingaroy. The Nolan family, Moonie paid $9000 Boonyouin Karnage K3, again offered by Maryanne Kearney.
