Jen-Daview Limousins spokesperson Brent Evans said they were left speechless by the sale results.
"It was a very, very strong sale. We had good buyer support from all over Queensland," Mr Evans said.
Mr Evans said bulls went to Aramac, Emerald, Duaringa and Glen Innes, NSW, and heifers went as far as WA.
He said the sale had bulls for every budget, from top end bulls to $5000 to $8000 bulls for commercial cattlemen.
"We had a very big inquiry on good quality black polled bulls and a lot of commercial cattlemen stepped into that job, which was awesome," he said.
