Cold start to bull sale season

17th Aug 2022

Cold, wet weather greeted Richard and Prue Post on Monday, August 1st for their very successful 38th Annual Glenavon Angus on property sale at Outer Bald Blair.
Visitors were treated to slow cooked brisket burgers, barista coffee and a mouth-watering line-up of home cooked treats courtesy of Prue Post and Emma McLennan.
The dismal weather did not dampen a great atmosphere and strong sale, resulting in all 99 Bulls and 100 heifers sold. Whilst many bulls stayed locally, good lines of bulls headed as far afield as northern Queensland and southern Victoria.
The Standout Sire line sought by buyers were sons of Stoney Point Nolte, and the top priced Bull (lot 6 Glenavon R194) sold to AJM Pastoral, Richmond QLD.
Of the 99 Bulls sold, 41 were yearlings which offered buyers access to the latest genetics at a reasonable price on the day.
Elders Guyra, led by Mark, Craig, Paul and Terry managed the sale with Richard making a special note of their outstanding job in his post sale comments. A special mention was also made of Auctioneer Lincoln McKinlay.
The Glenavon Team sincerely appreciates the support of the local community in their breeding program.
Whilst 2022 saw a reduced bull offering largely due to the impact of the 2019 drought, the Glenavon Team look forward to a much larger line-up of Bulls and Heifers for their next sale on Monday, August 7, 2023.
