Records tumble at Texas

 

Lot 40 - Texas Tour of Duty L282 Lot 94 - Texas Hat Trick L240AIb

Lot 43 Texas Guaranteed L283(AI) wasn't to be missed and was secured by Greg Watson of Bandaroo Angus, Kelvin NSW for $28,000. This stylish son of Ellingsdon Guaranteed out of a Dunoon Evident female created plenty of interest and Greg and his partner Gabby came up trumps (pictured below).

The Land

Volume buyers of the day were return clients Paul and Jo Smith, Tieyon Station, Alice Springs, NT purchasing 11 bulls for an average $13,000 topping at $24,000 for Lot 51 Texas Reality L227(AI).  The Smith's run a large scale pure Angus herd in Central Australia and have been buying Texas bulls since 2001.

Repeat buyers Mark and Belinda Wilson, Banana Station QLD took 9 heifer bulls home for an average of $12,000, paying up to $17,000 for the last bull in the ring Lot 134 Texas Vice Admiral, an 892kg son of Texas Admiral E379.

The Mayne family were completely taken by surprised with the end result and were very thankful to buyers, under bidders and agents that had travelled long distances to attend the sale and in the weeks leading up to the sale.

Principal Ben Mayne believed the huge genetic investment the stud outlaid in embryo transfer and artificial insemination has further strengthened the maternal lines and the progeny that have been hitting the ground in recent years are consistent standouts. This was the first year where actual performance data was matching it on paper. The growth rates of these bulls were exceptional particularly when they had calving ease, moderate birthweights, carried softness, excellent carcase values and known to strive and thrive in tough environments.

The Mayne's wanted to acknowledge the dedicated Texas Team who once again did a fantastic job - BJA, GDL, GTSM and Falls Transport.
