The ANC Charolais on-property sale near Gulguba on Friday twice hit a top of $15,000, with an average of $6443.

The on-property sale near Gulugaba on Friday drew buyers from all over Queensland, as well as one Victorian buyer.

Of the 102 bulls on offered, 70 sold for a clearance of 69pc.

The first bull to hit the $15,000 top price was ANC Oakey (P), bought by Ken and Jackie Knudsen, Kilbeggan, Chinchilla.

The two-year-old son of ANC Jubilant from ANC Lorinsi's Netty weighed 970kg with P8 and rib fat of 12mm and 8mm, intramuscular fat of 5.4 per cent, 146 sq cm eye muscle area and 40cm scrotal circumference.

"He's a nice bull, good weight for age... he'll go well over the Santa cows that we're putting him over," Mr Knudsen said.

"I've had their bulls before and they do a good job, and they're close."

He was one of four bulls bought by the Knudsens.

The next $15,000 bull was bought by Chas and Judy Nobbs, Cordelia, Bauhinia, who were looking for polled bulls with good conformation.

Chas and Judy Nobbs bought another two bulls for $14,000 each.

ANC Nitro (P), a two-year-old son of ANC Honda from Norfolk Park Debella, weighed 868kg with P8 and rib fat of 8mm and 6mm, 3.5pc IMF, a 141 sq cm EMA and 41cm scrotal circumference.

Stud co-principal Andrew Cass said they were happy with the sale result, especially considering the seasonal conditions.

"Prices were excellent, I can't complain about the prices," he said.

"Obviously the clearance wasn't complete but I didn't expect it to be so considering the season.

"There were repeat buyers and quite a few new ones, which is always a pleasing thing."
