MURRAY Greys bulls sold to a top of $9000 and averaged $4612 at the breed's National Show and Sale at Wodonga today.
The results from the clearance of 24 bulls from the 37 head offering was marginally better than last year when 21 bulls averaged $4190.
But Tasmanian breeder Charles Wallace thought there was a bit more enthusiasm at this year’s sale.
The sale also included an offering of 37 cows and heifers which sold to a top of $6500 and averaged $3202.
Des and Anne Slattery of the Cullenya stud from Wannon sold the top–priced bull Cullenya Frazer to Northern NSW breeder Sue Francis of the Onward stud from Dorrigo.
Brian Powell principal of the Yamba stud from Rosebery, NSW, which exhibited the supreme champion Yamba Exhibit which sold for $8000 described the sale average as very solid.
Yamba was among the major vendors with 8 bulls of which seven sold.
"Murray Grey breeders can’t afford to be too greedy," Mr Powell said.
Geoff and Kate Buick of the Arki stud from Bordertown, South Australia top the female offering at $6500 for the high indexing 18-month-old heifer Arki Friendship.
She was bought by Glenburn Station at Glenburn.
