2018 Sale Results
BULLS reached a high of $18,000 and females topped at $5000 at the 21st Anniversary Wallawong Carcase Quality Sale at “Marriot Park”, Gunnedah, on July 12.
Fifteen of the 19 Murray Grey bulls sold for an average of $6077 and twenty females averaged $2975.
Diane Whale of Glenliam Farm Murray Greys, Glen William, bought the top bull, paying $18,000 for Wallawong Magic Man M47, a 24-month-old son of Lindsay Fusion F94 and Wallawong Emerald F68. The bull weighed 910 kilograms, had an eye muscle area (EMA) of 127 square centimetres, intramuscular fat of 7.6 per cent and rump and rib fat of 18 millimetres and 16mm. He had a scrotal size of 43cm and had estimated breeding values (EBVs) of +31, +49, and +78 for 200-, 400- and 600-day weight.
Mrs Whale said Glenliam will use the bull in the stud and commercial herd, along with marketing semen.
“We were looking for the right balance between conformation and carcase quality and to have his EMA, fats and marbling combined is very rare.” Mrs Whale said
Three bulls made $7000, Lot 1 Wallawong Masterclass M22 and Lot 6 Wallawong Master & Commander selling to new clients in Western Australia and repeat client Warren Gunter taking Lot 9 Wallawong Mercury M45 back to Baradine.
In the females, Lot 21 Wallawong Gale K116 a three and a half year old cow by $10,000 Wallawong Winchester with silver bull calf at foot by Wallawong Masterclass reached the top price, selling for $5000 to Guy Burnett, Wagga Wagga.

Overall Burnett Pastoral Trust bought five females in the sale to average $3400.
