ANGUS bulls sold to the top price of $3600 five times during a helmsman auction at the Kingarth stud, Nairne, yesterday.

Kangaroo Island buyers took home the majority of the nine bulls sold from the 21 offered, averaging $3511.

The sale’s volume buyer, Linc Willson, MacGillivray, KI, bought four bulls – three at $3600 and another at $3400.

They were sons of Pathfinder Design F425 and Stony Point Knuckle K507.

The Guthrie family, Rocky Glen, Gumeracha, returned to buy $3600 bull Kingarth Design N15, which boasted the third highest growth rate in the catalogue at +109 for 600-day weight.

Hugh Guthrie said they chose the 21-month-old bull, sired by Pathfinder Design F425 and out of Kingarth Penny G31, for its size and quiet temperament.

The other $3600 bull went to Robert Paech, Hahndorf, for Kingarth Zambia N17.

Dennis Wandel, Gosse, KI, paid $3400 for Kingarth Kazoo N2, sired by Stony Point Kazoo K200 and out of Kingarth Miriam L21. 

The 21-month-old had the highest eye muscle in the catalogue at 9.2 square centimetres.

The 26 pregnancy-tested in-calf females also offered at the sale failed to sell, but were later offered at Kingarth’s open day on Sunday.

The sale was conducted by Rob Parken Livestock, Strathalbyn.
