Charolais is the latest breed to re-set its bull record price during the 2017 spring bull selling season, with an $83,000 sale notched-up at yesterday’s Moongool sale hosted by the Price family near Yuleba, on Queensland’s western downs.
The new high-water mark was set by the second bull into the ring, Moongool Lunar Rise (P), a Silverstream Evolution son bought by David and Lynette Whitechurch, Fourway Stud, Inverell NSW.
The very next bull to enter the ring, Moongool L67E, also eclipsed the previous $61,000 Charolais breed record when he sold for $64,000 to Rolleston, Central Queensland bullock producer, Doug Logan, Warrinilla. The previous Charolais breed record was set by Palgrove in 2015.
In total, Moongool sold 92 of 100 Charolais bulls offered yesterday, including 42 polls, averaging $9016. Further details in tonight’s Weekly Genetics Review, complied by Geoff Phillips.
New breed records have now been set this year for Simmental, Wagyu, Charolais, Santa Gertrudis (equal), Speckle Park, Black Simmental and Belmont Red breeds.
