THE 12th annual Temana Charolais on-property bull sale was well supported with buyers both online and in the gallery.

With 25 bulls on offer a top price of $8000 twice and a draft average of $5542, all bar one bull sold at auction with the last bull selling right after, giving a full clearance of the bulls on the day.

Sixteen of the draft were sold via the online platform AuctionsPlus including one of the top priced bulls.

Sharing top priced honours was a son of Minnie-Vale Jack Sprat, Temania P156E who weighed 906 kilograms and had a scrotal size of 44 centimeters.

He was purchased by Tawn Charolais, Warren, who will use the bull as his stud sire as they liked the growth rate and eye muscle are and intramuscular fat scores.

Terry Griffin, stud co-principal, thought the sale was fantastic.

"We are grateful that everything was sold, we were a bit nervous before the sale due to the lockdowns." he said.

"We have had higher prices but never cleared all of the bulls.

"We have both new and follow up buyers, one who purchased from the Golden Guitar sale a few years ago and now he is back."

The sale was conducted by Elders Gunnedah with Lincoln McKinlay manning the rostrum.
