BJF’s sale clearly a suc­cess

Central and North Rural Weekly - - DROUGHT RESILIENCE PROJECT -

BJF Li­mousin own­ers Bradley and Jodie Frohloff were pleased to an­nounce that the stud’s re­cent on-prop­erty sale achieved a 100 per cent clear­ance.

Held on Au­gust 17 at BJF’s Yar­ra­man prop­erty, the event was the sec­ond an­nual bull and fe­male sale held at the stud’s pur­pose-built sale com­plex.

Bradley Frohloff said he was ex­tremely happy with the well-at­tended sale.

“We are ab­so­lutely over the moon that in tough, dry con­di­tions we have been able to get 100 per cent clear­ance,” he said.

Mr Frohloff said more than 150 peo­ple had at­tended the sale, with 60 reg­is­tered bid­ders present in per­son or by phone.

“We sold an­i­mals as far north as Sarina in Cen­tral Queens­land, and as far south as Co­lac, in Vic­to­ria,” he said.

The stud pre­sented 44 bulls, and 10 fe­males.

The top price fetched among the bulls was $16,500 for Down­fall Grants Mar­tini, owned by Peter and Pauline Grant and sold to Lau­rence Jones of Theodore.

The av­er­age price for bulls on the day was $6114.

BJF Yan­kee Spice Girl, owned by the stud, fetched the top price of the fe­male show­ing, sell­ing for $6500 to George Mas­sam of Beaudesert.

For the sale, a strong em­pha­sis was placed on polled ge­net­ics with the ma­jor­ity of the cat­a­logue be­ing polled, and fea­tur­ing bulls with soft­ness and the abil­ity to lay down fat at an early age.

“This mod­ern type of li­mousin is re­ally starting to make its mark in the in­dus­try,” Mr Frohloff said.

Suc­cess be­ing en­joyed by the breed in­cludes ven­dor MK Cat­tle Li­mousin’s re­cent cham­pion grass-fed steer win at the Cal­lide Daw­son Car­cass Com­pe­ti­tion with a pure­bred li­mousin steer.

Ear­lier this year, BJF Li­mousin cus­tomer Don Rus­sell won cham­pion pen of cross­bred steers at the Stan­thorpe Blue Rib­bon Weaner Sale with li­mousin cross steers by BJF and A.T Li­mousin bulls.
