A top price of $20,000 and an overall average of $5340 was achieved by the Welsh Families, Huntington Stud, Taroom, held at the Taroom Saleyards today.
The sale topper was Huntington Musafa (P) and was selected by Bill and Julie Lewis, Diamond Dove Charbrays, Monto
Mr Lewis, who also bought the top price at last year’s sale said Musafa appealed due to his length, raw data, and the fact he was a polled bull. He will be used from stud duites within the Diamond Dove herd.
Musafa was by the polled sire Huntington High Roller (P) from Huntington Lady from the polled scurred dam Huntington Lady of the Dawn.
Beaumont Grazing Taroom were the underbidders.
Next was Huntington Monty (P/SC) bought be Les and Anne Marshall, Greenfield Charolais, Jambin, who sold for $13,000.
The sale had a first and last ring to it, as it was the first time the Welsh family had offered an ‘all Charbray draft’, and the last time the sale would be held at the Taroom Saleyards.
Next year’s Huntington sale will be held in a new sales complex on-property at Taroom.
Queensland Country Life will have a full report in next week’s issue.
