A Queensland Limousin auction sale record of $27,000 was set at the BJF Limousin Invitation Sale near Yarraman on Friday, when Ulster 1 Peyton (2P) sold under the hammer.
Offered by invited vendors David and Jessica Eagleson, Ulster 1 Limousins, the rising 25 month-old son of TMF Westwood 505W, attracted attention from all parts of the buyers gallery.
With bidding opening at $5000, Aussie Land and Livestock auctioneer Midge Thompson didn't take long to accept $1000 bids around the ring, that quickly added up to $27,0000.
The successful buyer was central Queensland cattleman, Laurence Hack, from Alpha.
Mr Hack and his wife Pat join 800 Euro-cross breeders on both Rocklea and Prior Park turning bullocks off onto the Japanese market.
Mr Hack said Ulster 1 Peyton was an exceptional bull in every way including confirmation and temperament.
"He took my eye when I received the catalogue, and I wasn't going home without him," Mr Hack said.
Overall 42 bulls sold to average $7630, while 10 females topped at $10,000 to average $4525.
Peter and Pauline Grant, The Downfall Limousin Stud, topped the female market with The Downfall Kaye Queensland Q10.
The couple catalogued a "pick of the pair" offering two beautiful embryo heifers by the highly sought after Greenwood PLD Zambuka.
Limousin breeders Darren and Shelly Hartwig, Gold Crest Limousins, selected Kaye Queensland Q10 leaving the Grants to retain her sibling Q11.
Sale host Bradley Frohoff, BJF Limousins, said the sale result reflected the benefits commercial breeders can gain from using Limousins.
"We are delighted with the overall sale result and we certainly received true value for the quality cattle we presented.
