Glan­worth year­ling sale a suc­cess

Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING -

A fine day greeted prospec­tive buy­ers to the first year­ling auc­tion held by Shaun and Fiona Fouhy at Glan­worth on Oc­to­ber 4.

These bulls were es­pe­cially se­lected for calv­ing ease and low birth weight breed­ing val­ues. The cou­ple have sold year­lings pri­vately for many years with a rep­u­ta­tion for sell­ing easy calv­ing bulls for heifer mat­ing.

All 32 bulls met spir­ited bid­ding from lo­cal dairy and beef clients. A to­tal clear­ance of 32 bulls sold at an av­er­age $3509, with a top price of $6100, and an­other at $5200 to a south Is­land com­mer­cial farmer. The fam­ily were very pleased with the re­sult from auc­tion­eer Bjorn An­der­son and thanked pur­chasers and un­der bid­ders for a suc­cess­ful sale.
