RECORDING the strongest average in its 18 year on-property bull sale history, the Minnie-Vale Charolais stud at Narrabri proved a popular choice for both stud and commercial breeders looking to buy high-performance sires with impeccable temperaments.
Jason and Sue Salier of Minnie-Vale sold 44 of 44 bulls for a 100 per cent clearance, a top of $20,000, twice and a new stud record average of $13,023.
First-time buyers Charlie and Vicki Pike couldn’t go past Minnie-Vale Ace of Spades for their crossbred program at Quirindi, bidding up to the equal top price of $20,000 for the genuine sire prospect.
