Buyers broke no records at last night’s premier dairy cattle sale at International Dairy Week, but paid consistently high prices for more than 30 Holstein lots.
A crowd of about 1000 people at Tatura’s Blackmore-Leslie complex saw bidders go up to $12000 for a Numero Uno heifer offered by the Gordon family.
This was the top auction price.
Although the prices did not reach last year’s top of $14000, buyers paid more than $70000 for the first 10 lots of young stock.
The average lot price was $6823.
Sold under the hammer of veteran auctioneer Brian Leslie, the crowd was not disappointed with the rapid fire delivery of commentary on bidding, punctuated by the breeding history.
One three-week-old imported embryo that was not born when the catalogue was put together, and was not at the auction, owned by a NSW stud was sold for $11000.
Buyers saw a video of the calf projected on to a large screen.
A Noni calf offered by the Perrett family sold for $11500.
