Bulls sold to a top of $12,000 at the BJF Limousins Invitational Sale near Yarraman on Friday.

Of the 38 bulls offered at the multi-vendor sale, 32 sold to average $5254, while nine out of 11 females sold to average $2889.

The clearance for the sale was 84pc.

Fetching the top price of $12,000 was rising two-year-old Oakwood Two Fresh from vendors Paul and Kelli Forman, Bundaberg bought by Steven and Karen Fox, Croftby for use in their commercial operation.

A homozygous polled son of Canadian sire Richmond Crusader SRD 53C from Oakwood She's Final, he weighed 974kg with an eye muscle area of 145 sq cm, P8 and rib fat of 19mm and 13mm, intramuscular fat of 5.4pc and a scrotal circumference of 38cm.

Mr Forman said that he knew that he had a good quality bull in Oakwood Two Fresh but was pleased to get the top price.

"I think it was a case of the right place and the right time and he is quite practical for the market with excellent fat coverage and IMF," he said.

"He's also one of the first bulls we've sold from that sire so the imported genetics may have attracted some interest as well."

The second top price of $10,500 was achieved by BJF Limousins' principals Bradley and Jodie Frohloff for 21-month-old BJF Impact Champion, bought by Trevor Weir, Mount Molar.

It's the third year that BJF Limousins has hosted the invitational sale.

Mr Frohloff said they were extremely happy with the results of the sale considering the tough seasonal conditions.

"We had a lot of repeat buyers but also several new buyers, which was nice," he said.

"We've got three grandstands and they were all full and there were 43 bid cards."
