With 75 Angus bulls offered, there was a complete clearance for the Litchfield family's annual Spring Bull Sale held at Cooma.

Top price at $11,000 was achieved three times with the overall sale average of $6480 realised.

Speaking before the sale, stud principal Jim Litchfield said he was very pleased with the presentation of the bulls, especially considering they have grown through a very tough season on the Monaro.

His daughter Bea Litchfield said the family were very happy with the sale result.

"There was a lot of local interest and the confidence in the longevity of our genetic program is extremely gratifying," Ms Litchfield said.

"Even through the drought our sale featured many repeat buyers."
