15th Aug 2023

Monday August 7th was a sunny and mild day at Outer Bald Blair for the Glenavon Angus 39th Annual sale. It was a successful day for vendors, Richard and Prue Post and the Glenavon team with 112 bulls and 74 heifers sold to clients throughout Victoria, NSW and QLD.
The sale barn was full with many having to stand for the auction. The support of leading local beef producers was a real feature of the sale, for which the entire Glenavon team are most grateful.
In his opening remarks, Richard outlined his vision for the modern Angus animal and the Stud’s focus on the handful of performance traits that drive commercial profitability, backed with a relentless eye on structure and longevity. This was illustrated in the Glenavon catalogue with the stud’s commercial herd benchmarking data placing it in the top 1% of over 200 commercial beef producers.
The outstanding temperament of both heifers and bulls was evident to those in attendance, something which Richard attributed to the stockmanship skills of Glenavon team members Dan McLennan and Cody Clarke who are responsible for training all animals from birth.
The top priced bull, Glenavon Enhance S55 sold to the Lindeman Family of “Maryburn” Wollomombi. S55, a heifer’s calf, boasted exceptional phenotype, temperament, and a flawless female pedigree. Dam Q238 and Grand Dam L36 are both perfoming at the top of the Glenavon herd for fertility, whilst Great Grand Dam B47 contributed 14 outstanding calves in a career that typifies the longevity and commercial focus of the Glenavon herd. For the Lindeman Family, S55 is a half-brother to the Q42 bull they purchased in 2021, also topping the sale and Sired by Sydgen Enhance.
The Glenavon team acknowledges the fantastic team in our local Elders office and auctioneer Lincoln Mckinlay. Planning is well underway for 2024 which will be an offering packed with industry leading genetics on the first Monday in August.
