Record Spring Sale For Weeran

The 2020 Spring Sale for Weeran Angus was a sale with a difference. All visitors arrived wearing masks, social distancing and sitting 1.5 metres apart, and the Moore family unsure if there would be a crowd at their sale. Well, the cars rolled in from around Victoria, masks worn, and 54 bulls presented with strong bidding from beginning to end, including the on line selling platform with Elite Livestock Auctions. 100 percent clearance, 54 bulls sold to a top of $14,000 three times and an average of $7,750. A jump up in numbers of bulls sold and also increase in average from last year by $1779. A fantastic result. The temperament of the bulls going through the sale ring was exemplary.

The top price of $14,000 was achieved three times. Firstly Lot 7, Weeran Parraffin P626, sold to Francs Angus at Beaufort. A first time buyer at Weeran Angus. P626 is a calving ease specialist with heaps of growth , and excellent structure. A birthweight EBV of 2.8 to 600 day growth of 138 being an excellent growth curve. Equal top price was Lot 16 Weeran Pooginook P387 sold to repeat buyer, the Allen Family of South Boorook at Mortlake. He is a son of Paringa Judd M118 out of a Weeran Boomerang daughter. A calving ease bull who ticks lots of boxes for carcase, growth and IMF. Equal top price also went to Lot 31 Weeran Quartz Q141 purchased by Tooma Station. One of the younger bulls in the sale who is in the top 20% of the breed for all indexes, and a calving ease specialist with carcase.

Second top price of $13,000 was paid by Peter Delany of Murroa East, Hamilton for Lot 28 Weeran Quebec Q66. One of the first Sydgen Enhance sons to be offered in Australia. Described by Alec Moore as a real mover and shaker for carcase. Well graded for structure with very good net feed efficiency and indexing. Murroa East have been purchasing bulls at Weeran since 1995.
Lot 27 Weeran Quinn Q116 was purchased by Dick Whale of IBMS for Willalooka Pastoral Coy for $12,000. Calving ease and growth curve with excellent IMF. Lot 42 Weeran Panorama P437 sold for $12,000 to Kilkenny Pastoral, Hawkesdale. One of the highest grading bulls in the sale and in the top 1% of the breed for net feed efficiency, top 3% for calving ease daughters with explosive growth. Lot 58 Weeran Peterpan P604 also went for $12,000 purchased by Alchorne Farms at Hawkesdale. P604 has an outstanding carcase package!

Elite Livestock Auctions ran a live simulcast with great success, with viewers situated in QLD, NSW, SA and Victoria watching the on line auction. You can’t beat sitting in the crowd at a sale and being part of the atmosphere, but in Covid-19 times, it called for an online platform, which was very well received with ten bulls being purchased through Elite Livestock, and many others having bids from on line buyers.

Volume buyers at the sale included return clients, Alchorne Farms, Hawkesdale purchasing 7 bulls, Nareen Station, Nareen purchasing 5 bulls, and Tooma Station, Tooma and the Armit Family from Swifts Creek both purchasing 3. New Client to the Weeran program, Wells Ag Pty Ltd, Elaine purchased 4 bulls.
