Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING - By STEVE CARLE´

Kevin and Me­gan Friel of Mt Mable An­gus of­fered 26 year­ling An­gus bulls and three two-year-old bulls for sale in their bull sell­ing ring on Jack­son Road, Kumeroa on Mon­day Septem­ber 24.

While the core busi­ness of Mt Mable An­gus is breed­ing and sell­ing two-year-old An­gus bulls, year­ling bulls had been sold in the pad­dock in pre­vi­ous years. With in­creas­ing en­quiry and a large bull calf drop in 2017 it was a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion to auc­tion the year­ling bulls this year so that ev­ery­one could have the same op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase the bull of their choice.

A smaller crowd than that which at­tends the an­nual twoyear-old bull sale in June did not de­tract from the spir­ited bid­ding where all 26 of the year­ling bulls sold for an av­er­age price of $3746. The three two year olds were good buy­ing at an av­er­age price of $4566.

Two year­ling bulls made the top price of $6000 with these both go­ing to com­mer­cial buy­ers, Lot 5 go­ing to Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay and Lot 7 stay­ing in the lo­cal area.

The ven­dors are un­der­stand­ably happy with the re­sult and thank all those who at­tended and all the stock firms who were rep­re­sented, es­pe­cially PGG Wright­son who were also the auc­tion­eers.

The day could not go ahead with­out the team of helpers made up of neigh­bours, fam­ily and friends.

‘The ven­dors are un­der­stand­ably very happy with the re­sult and thank all those who at­tended and all the stock firms who were rep­re­sented, es­pe­cially PGG Wright­son who were also the auc­tion­eers.’
