PB Fenech Brahman Sale 2009 - Sale Results


Some of Australia’s most sought after Brahman genetics were presented at last month’s annual PB Fenech Brahman Sale which exceeded all previous results by achieving a 100% clearance rate and a gross record of $1,027,500.

 

Held on property at The Chase, Sarina Queensland, on offer were 101 grey and red bulls and heifers and three semen packages. The overall average price per lot was $10,173.26 which was further testament that the dry conditions were not deterring the demand for top quality breeding stock.

 

A strong crowd of over 500 spectators and buyers were in attendance from Queensland and New South Wales with representatives from international ports including America and Thailand.

 

The history of the PB Fenech Stud dates back for more than three decades and is owned and operated by Paul and Brigid Fenech. Throughout this time, they have invested a great deal of research into the breed and selection of genetics with a focus on producing fertile functional cattle for the Australian Commercial Cattleman.

 

A first for the Stud was the offering of red Brahman genetics through two highly regarded bloodlines – the Rockley Red Stud and the Kinnon Family’s Bungoona Red Herd.

 

Buying strength and volume came from Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

 

The top price male was a grey Brahman bull selling for $46,000 to Ron Kirk of Yenda Brahmans, Gayndah. The highest priced female was a red Brahman heifer Lot 101, purchased by Lindley Park Brahmans from Mackay for $32,000.

 

Taking out the highest priced grey Brahman heifer was Lot 104 which was purchased for $26,000 by Charlie and Carmel McKinlay of Stewart Park, Comet, Queensland.

 

Demand was strong for reds which saw two red Brahman bulls both make $10,000 each. Lot 36 was secured by Dan Beacham of Allendale Station, Ingham and Lot 38 went across the border to Bizzy Brahmans Nettle Creek, Copmanhurst New South Wales.
