Stud owner’s Sam and Kirsty White would like to thank all the bidders and underbidders who attended their 49th Annual on property Bull Sale.
“Thank you to Keith Howe and his team at Rangers Valley, who provided Black Onyx Beef for lunch. We acknowledge your support of us, and many fellow Angus breeders around the country, in our difficult hours thru 2019.
“Thank you to the Chef’s team of Peter and Sharon Dundon and Emily Brett and the catering team Mara Grills, Sally Geere, Erica Ulrick, Maare Foster and Mel Morgan from Bald Blair School P&C. It is always a pleasure to deal with you so thank you for looking after us.
“Thank you to the Bald Blair team, Tom Cleaver (1st Sale), Jonathan Woods, James Lenehan, Dan Klabe, Suzie White, Jack McCook and our eldest son Abbott White, and younger son Arthur  for your work pre-sale and on sale day. 
“The time line for breeding bulls is a long one, the decisions we make in the next few weeks and months will bear fruit in three year’s time.  Breeding Bulls requires patience, good stockmanship and a very sound understanding of the breeding decision support technologies that are available. Our goal is to keep getting better with our decisions on breeding Angus Cattle. 
“To Dick Whale, IBMS thank you for your support and for challenging us to keep getting better.
Thank you Struan and Monica from stud stock sales/AuctionsPlus), and to the Elders Team; Paul Harris, Mark Atkins, Craig Waters, Terry Williams, Wayne Jenkyn, Brian Kennedy, Lincoln McKinlay, Ashlee Lance and Stephanie Young.
