Bull sale clears all stock

The Western Star - - Best Of The West -

THE Valera Vale Drough­mas­ter sale has again topped the charts with a 100 per cent clear­ance in the ring and a sell­ing av­er­age of $5341.84.

The sale was run at stud prin­ci­pal Michael Flynn’s prop­erty in Au­gathella, with buy­ers com­ing from all over Aus­tralia and clear­ing the 98 bulls on of­fer.

Mr Flynn said it was an ex­cep­tion­ally strong sale in the tough cir­cum­stances.

“You can’t top 100 per cent,” Mr Flynn said. “Last year we got 100 per cent clear­ance but we had 24 less bulls; we knew it was a risk hav­ing more but they were so good that we couldn’t knock any of them out and we just let the buy­ers de­cide.”

The top-price bull was Lot 54, which sold for $15,500 to the James fam­ily of Hid­den Val­ley, Kather­ine.

“Thank you to every­body for their tremen­dous sup­port in these tough times, the ma­jor­ity of the buy­ers were re­peat buys, which gives you con­fi­dence that the bulls are dong their jobs.”
