Last week we told you about us selling some embryo's to Australian Simmental breeders Peter and Charmaine Cook from Barana Simmentals in NSW.
They hosted their 10th Annual Production Sale on July 1, 2010. Included in their offering were 10 Black Simmental Bulls, 7 of them were embryo progeny from 2 of our top donor cows JDN Blk Signature 19L and SS Ebony's Dreamdate 27S. These 7 bulls averaged $6071, topping at $9000. 5 were between $6000 - $6500 and one at $3000. They sold into Queensland, and throughout NSW. This is the sale report from their web page:
"Barana Simmentals 10th Anniversary Sale achieved a satisfying result with 51 of the 52 Simmental bulls offered selling to a top of $9,000 with an average of $4,985. The 10 Simmental heifers sold to $2,250 with an average of $1,625 and 12 commercial Simmental heifers sold to $1,400 with an average of $1,316. The 10 black Simmentals sold to average $6,350. Pre & post sale enquiry was positive with buyers looking to secure Simmental bulls due to the contribution they make to their commercial operation. The sale outcome and comments on the day indicate strong interest in Barana Simmentals with the first offering of the Barana black Simmentals achieving an excellent result.
We were very pleased with the outcome and our sincere thanks go to our clients for their continued & solid support. We also appreciate the extremely positive feedback we received on the cattle presented at our 10th Anniversary Sale."
