Seventeen of the 29 bulls offered sold to an average of $4546. Buyer interest came from the local region as well as restockers from Forbes and Bathurst. 

Ms Griggs has paid top-price at the Kirraweena sale two years in a row and said the cattle are proving themselves. 

“He is a good looking bull, I am very happy with the bloodline,” Ms Griggs said. 

Glenholme Lawrence was sired by Kirraweena Godfrey, and was the first calf of Glenholme Queenie H015. 

Kirraweena Glenholme, owner operator, Geoff Bush said the bull had beautiful combination of length and a great muscle pattern. 

“We stand behind everything we sell,” Mr Bush said. 

The second highest price paid was $6250 for Glenholme Lambert, selling to the Mitchell family, Boorowa.
