Spring sale

We had a full clearance at the September Spring Sale with all 25 yearling bulls off to new homes, and all five of the rising two-year-olds sold as well.
The yearlings averaged $7372, with a top dollar of $17,000 for Lot 12, purchased by Orere Angus at Pehiri. The R2 bulls sold for an average of $5900.

PGG Wrightson genetics representative Emma Pollitt said it was a very strong sale.

“The yearlings were a well-presented line of young bulls that represented Turihaua’s yearling bull programme really well. “They were rock solid cattle — heifer mating specialists.”

We were blown away by the buyer support shown. The yearlings average is up on 2022 and it’s great to see that continuing interest in the future of the cattle industry.

Having our strong, loyal, regular client base back in the rostrum was great. As well as the steady bidding from the bench of buyers in the Turihaua sales rostrum, there was quite a bit of online bidding action via BIDR as well.

The sale drew would-be buyers from all over the country and was steady the whole way through.
