The 27th annual Gingin sale on the 5th March was a day of celebration and optimism. A record number of people attended the show
and as Midlands Cattle Breeders’ Association president Tony Sudlow said it was a good time to be in cattle.
Average price records were higher than previous years, with a top price on the day for an Angus bull, Black Tara J24, which sold for $10,500
to Jason Kanny family of Bonegilla Grazing Company, Walkaway.
Leading off the catalogue, the Sudlow family’s Kapari Angus stud, Northampton, sold to a top of $10,000 twice with those two bulls going to
repeat buyers Jock Casey, Casey Fishing, Dongara, and Keith Troy, Gingin.
Overall 72 bulls, including five breeds from 12 vendors, sold for an average price of $5597, which was up $995 per head on last year. Angus bulls, particularly, were well sought after with four studs offering and selling all 47 bulls for an average price of $6,606.
