THE female lineup of Davelle South Devon’s fifth annual sale drew the buyers in during the AuctionsPlus offering on Friday.
The Jamestown stud offered 14 bulls, 12 females and two Droughtmaster bulls, and sold two South Devon bulls, averaging $5000, plus nine females.
Stud principal David Leese said the sale’s results were disappointing and showed the season, as well as the market’s fickleness.
The top price bull, 15-month-old Davelle Black Ranger M46, was sold for $6000 to John Brian, Babrooten stud, Tongala, Vic.
Black Ranger weighed 648 kilograms and was AI sired by BC Progress 315U. Mr Brian also bought two females at $2000.
“(Black Ranger) was the pick of the sale with great balance of type and performance. It ranked in the top 1 per cent in all Breedplan indexes,” Mr Leese said.
The second-highest price bull sold for $4000 to Jim Walker, Dubbo, NSW.
The female lineup topped at $2200 and averaged $2022, with the top price female sold to Alan and Stephen Sanders, Murraytown.
