A new record was set for the sale of a bull in Tasmania at Landfall Angus’ on-property auction on Monday.
The Launceston, Tas-based stud sold Lot 3 for $75,000, more than doubling its own bull sale record of $37,000, achieved last year.
It is the highest price a bull has sold for on record in Tasmania.
Witnessing the sale was an overflowing crowd of local and mainland buyers.
Travelling from Victoria, NSW, South Australia, Flinders Island and King Island, new and repeat buyers bid spiritedly to secure the bulls on offer.
The Lot 3 stud sire prospect, Landfall New Ground N90′, a son of USA 17262835 VAR Discovery 2240, was purchased by Bill Cornell, ABS Australia, Camperdown, Victoria, in partnership with an undisclosed members syndicate, including Anthony Pisa, Absolute Angus, Thorpedale.
