Paringa sale

Shepparton News - Country News - - REAL ESTATE -

In the au­di­ence . . . Paringa Hol­steins’ Jamie Wil­son and Pam Mal­colm watch the third stage of the dis­per­sal un­fold.

A strong re­sult has been reg­is­tered for Paringa Hol­steins’ third stage dis­per­sal sale, with a top price of $8000 achieved.

The to­tal clear­ance sale at Shep­par­ton Sa­le­yards saw 99 heifers sold for an aver­age price of $2810, with the top-sell­ing heifer Paringa Archri­val BrookImp-Et sold to Les and Louise Calder in Meeniyan in South Gipp­s­land.

With plenty of lo­cal and Vic­to­rian buy­ers rep­re­sented, bid­ders also came from as far north as Tam­worth in NSW and as far south as Tas­ma­nia.

Auc­tion­eer Brian Les­lie said he was thrilled with the re­sults.

‘‘It was a very strong sale with strong bid­ding through­out,’’ he said.

‘‘Paringa has got so much history and a long rep­u­ta­tion. The lots were pre­sented beau­ti­fully in out­stand­ing con­di­tions.’’

A to­tal of 16 heifers will now call Tam­worth home, while sev­eral will be trans­ported to the Gipp­s­land re­gion.

A large num­ber will stay in the lo­cal area.

Paringa Hol­steins’ owner Pam Mal­colm made the de­ci­sion to hang up the milk­ing apron in Septem­ber 2017.

Founded by her fa­ther in 1943, the In­ver­gor­don stud achieved a num­ber of ac­co­lades in­clud­ing win­ning IDW Grand Cham­pion Hol­stein for its cow Paringa Fever Opa at the 2016 In­ter­na­tional Dairy Week.

Bid­ders com­pete . . . With bid­ders from northern Vic­to­ria, Gipp­s­land, NSW and Tas­ma­nia, there was strong com­pe­ti­tion through­out the sale.

Go­ing, go­ing . . . Auc­tion­eer Brian Les­lie was pleased with the strong re­sult.
