Red Angus stud bulls sold to a top of $8500, to average $4788, at the Queensland Angus Power of Red Sale held at the Headingly Sale complex, Clifton, on Saturday.
It was the 23-month-old GK Red Mutual Fund M34, by the Canadian sire Red WRPA Legacy from the high producing GK Red Dina H24 that topped the sale.
He was offered by Gavin and Kirrily Iseppi, GK Livestock, Dalby, and bought by Andrew Costello, Landmark, on behalf of northern clients Philip and Tania Curr, Arizona Station, Julia Creek.
In all, Mr Costello finished with seven bulls to average $5071, on behalf of Arizona Station.
Mr Costello said his clients would join these bulls over Red Brangus and Santa Gertrudis breeders.
“They are looking to introduce the Angus over their herd to add softness, while at the same time retaining a red coloured herd,” Mr Costello said.
Making $7000 was Greenwood Park Noah, a son of T&R Juggernaut, from a Donna-Lynn Red Cherry female offered by Greenwood Park Red Angus Stud, Pittsworth, and bought by Bill Kettle, Capella.
A total of 10 stud heifers were sold to average $3175, and top at $5000, while 11 semen lots sold to average $173, and four embryos sold to average $528.
A full sale report will appear in next week’s issue of Queensland Country Life.
