COURALLIE J is making its return to the Glen Innes Hereford Bull Sale, with seven bulls for offer on July 26.
The Hann family has five horned bulls and two polled bulls in this year's sale.
Stud principal Jim Hann said the former Courallie stud had been a long-time supporter of the event, having begun selling there in 1951, when his father Val sold five bulls averaging 107 guineas each.
After the family partnership and the original stud dispersed in 2008, Mr Hann sold Courallie J bulls at Glen Innes a 2009.
He's sold bulls through an annual on-property sale for the past nine years, but after destocking dramatically due to drought, it made sense to return to the multi-vendor sale.
- Dry spurs shift to paddock to plate operation at Texas
- Glen Innes sires fit for stud, commercial use
- Top quality whiteface cattle at Glen Innes
Among his favourite bulls is lot 50, Courallie J K060 Keno N015, by Glendan Park Keno K060 and from Courallie J F051 Necklet.
"He's lovely quality bull, with plenty of meat in him and a strong spine, with a great outlook," Mr Hann said.
"He shows a lot of potential."
Lot 51, Courallie J L064 Lariat N062, has some of the best breeding behind him, Mr Hann said.
"He's a very thick bull, beautifully structured and has a great set of EBVs behind him.
"His bloodlines include three of the most successful sires used in studs over the past 15 years.
"He's by Courallie J F181 Lariat who's a son of Yarram Unique F81 and a cow by Cootharaba Magnum.
"Lariat's mother is from the great Miverna cow family, sired by Bowmont Storm C093."
Lot 94, a homozygous poll, is by Days Freedom K123, from an outstanding cow by Debarry MR, Mr Hann said.
"He's a bull with great quality, length and outlook, as well as lovely dark red skin."
Courallie J has been a regular supporter of the sale as a buyer.
"We've bought quite a few bulls out of Glen Innes over the years," Mr Hann said.
"It's wonderful place to be able to buy top quality Hereford and Poll Hereford, both herd improver bulls for commercial operations, and potential stud sires.
"It'll be our sale venue from now on simply because of the decrease in numbers."
