IT was a perfect result for the Cass family, Mungabunda, Moura, and their Ayr The Beefy Charolais on-property sale on September 19.
They offered 98 bulls and sold the lot for a 100pc clearance. The sale aggregate of $581,500 returned a very healthy average of $5933 with a top of $15,000.
Thirteen lots sold for $10,000 or more.
Speaking for his mum Ruth and dad George, Dave Cass said the results were "simply overwhelming" and exceeded expectations.
"I got a bit emotional for a while when they were selling so well," Dave Cass said.
"We couldn't thank everyone enough for their fabulous support. Really I am speechless.
"I don't honestly know why we got such a fantastic response but I hope it was because the buyers are looking for our type of cattle; I hope they bought the bulls they did because they like what we do.
"We were lucky to have a lot of repeat buyers."
Darren and Sandra Gilliam, Lake Elphinstone Partnership, Lake Elphinstone Station, Nebo, secured the most expensive bull in the draft when they paid $15,000 for 29 month-old Ayr Egan's Ducati.
