All ge­net­ics clear stud’s on­line sale

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - End Of An Era -

IT’S the sale that marked the end of an era.

Eight thou­sand brah­man se­men straws went up for auc­tion clear­ing the Tartrus brah­man ge­net­ics owned by Sir Graham McCamley.

“There was a lot of in­ter­est Aus­tralia wide,” Sir Graham said.

“There were single straws and pack­ages of up to 100 straws to cater for the larger and smaller prop­er­ties.

“We had the straws in three sub cat­e­gories which were grey’s, JD Hud­gins blood­line and reds which in­cluded Amer­i­can im­ports.”

All pro­ceeds of the auc­tion went to the Lady McCamley Memo­rial Foun­da­tion, with Life­line a ma­jor bene­fac­tor.

Sir Graham said it was a small way for him to give back to the ru­ral com­mu­nity which he has been part of.

“In the last 10-15 years Life­line has re­ally em­braced the ru­ral com­mu­nity so I felt it was a very wor­thy re­cip­i­ent,” he said.

He said the sale was a com­plete clear­ance.
