Telpara Hills annual sale delivers
FROM its record-breaking opening achieved by the first lot offered, to the sale’s 100 per cent clearance, and Telpara Hills Miss Benchmark’s strong $35,000 finish in the unjoined heifer section, Telpara Hills annual sale was a complete success.
Elders Stud Stock agent An-thony Ball predicted the 2022 Telpara Hills Brangus and Ultrablack Sale had the potential to set a new Australian record and attract buyers from four separate states, while attracting significant online bidding support and Saturday’s “Most Wanted” Bull and Female sale outperformed all expectations.
Achieving a gross sale figure of $3,019,000 for a total of 149 bulls and heifers, Telpara set a new national on-property sale record.
Auction opener and top price bull, Telpara Hills Mach Five 920R4 sold for a massive $150,000, to create a new Australian record for a Brangus sire.
The 151 registered online bidders from all around the country contributed more than a third of the total sale revenue, spending $1.7 Million to compete with the packed house of on-site bidders and secure their chosen animals.
The 107 Brangus bulls sold to a top of $150,000 to average $19,121 per head and the six Ultrablack bulls sold to a top of $38,000 to average a slightly higher figure of $20,000 each.
In the female section, a total of 28 Brangus heifers sold to a top of $44,000 to aver-age $24,717 a head, while the eight Ultrablacks sold to a top of $24,000 to average $20,125, delivering an impressive over-all sale average of $20,261 per head.
The Pearce family would like to thank everyone who supported Saturday’s sale and The Express will feature a full sale report in next week’s edition.
