Collie Angus hit an all time high at their annual sale at Merriwa on Friday, selling all 35 bulls with a top price of $20,000 and an overall average of $8285.
Coolie stud manager Jamie Edmonds referred to the last two years in his sale catalogue message as the most trying times, which brought out the quality of genetics in herds.
"Coolie used the conditions to assist in an even stricter culling process across the herd with a focus on fertility, do-ability, progeny quality and consistency," he said.
The sale wrapped up just as the heavens opened on the green pastures at Merriwa.
Coolie Capitalist Q5 secured the top price of $20,000 on AuctionsPlus heading to Macka Pastoral at Salt Ash.
The 17-month-old had the highest scans of intramuscular fat, fat and eye muscle area for his group.
Sired by LD Capitalist 316 and out of the Ascot Hallmark H147 daughter, Coolie Flower L153 was in the top 15 per cent for 200, 400 and 600 day weight estimated breeding values.
Macka Pastoral also purchased the bulk of the Coolie draft taking home a total of seven bulls.
Another buyer of note was Kickerbell West who purchased three bulls to a top of $8000 and an average of $6666.
The sale was conducted by Davidson Cameron and Co with Paul Dooley as auctioneer.
