Thanks to everyone who attended and supported the Palgrove Scone Sale on Friday 5th June. The 47 Charolais bulls offered all sold to a (Scone Sale) record top of $20,500.
Bulls averaged $7,042, with commercial beef producers from the Hunter and further afield securing bulls from $3,000.
We were really pleased with the support from repeat clients, with 72% of bulls sold to buyers who had bought Palgrove bulls previously. Long time supporters, the Gill family, “Alexander Downs”, Merriwa, (pictured) purchased the top-priced bull, Lot 3 Palgrove Jackaroo (Pictured above).
The 22-month-old bull, by Silverstream Evolution from Palgrove Panache, weighed 850kg and had EBVs of +23 for 200-day weight, +36 for 400-day weight and +55 for 600-day weight. The Gill family also purchased the second highest selling bull, Palgrove Jamboree for $14,000.
Another long time Palgrove supporter, Ellerston Station, Scone was the volume buyer on the day securing six bulls.
Sons of Palgrove’s new polled sire, Silverstream Evolution proved extremely popular with buyers with the three bulls offered for sale averaging $13,400.
We have an outstanding selection of 150 Charolais and Ultrablack bulls currently being catalogued for our Annual Bull Sale on Friday 21st August. We look forward to introducing producers to sons by our ‘new generation’ Palgrove sires.
