IT was a solid result at the Cowley family's Roseleigh Angus bull sale on Tuesday, with good clearance and a top of $10,500 made twice.
There were 34 bulls sold from 35 offered, averaging $5764.
One of the top price bulls was knocked down to long-time Roseleigh client Josh Densley, Black Range Partners, Keith.
Roseleigh N18 is a 21-month-old sire, weighing 846 kilograms.
It was in the top one per cent of the breed for rib and rump fat.
The bull was sired by Mandayen Emperor K40 and out of Roseleigh J41.
Mr Densley said it was a very well put together bull that was backed up by good data.
He said he kept returning to Roseleigh for their bulls' doing-ability and performance.
"They perform well on grass and in feedlots," he said.
"I sell some of my cattle as weaners, but grow most of them out to sell into feedlots. So, it's good that I can produce an article that can finish well on grass or grain."
Mr Densley bought three bulls all up, averaging $7333.
The other top price buyer was Nathan Nutt, Keith, who has been buying from Roseleigh for close to a decade.
Mr Nutt said Roseleigh produced bulls with good shape, softness and back ends.
He paid $10,500 for Roseleigh N43, aged 20 months and weighing in at 896kg.
It measured a whopping +154 on the Angus Breeding Index for heavy grain value.
The bull was sired by Kansas Datalink L25 and out of Roseleigh Hettie H11.
"I thought it was a well put-together bull, I really couldn't find a fault with it," Mr Nutt said.
Mr Nutt also bought another bull at $4000.
The major volume buyer was regular clients Dilbong Pastoral Co, Tara, Qld, taking eight bulls to $8000, averaging $6250.
Kangaringa Station, Keith, bought six bulls to $6000, averaging $4666.
New buyer EH Pitt, Lucindale, purchased two bulls to $8500, averaging $6250.
Other South East buyers included PJ&TM Woodman, Bordertown, two bulls to $8500, averaging $7250, and KP Pastoral, Frances, three bulls to $5500, averaging $4833.
Roseleigh co-principal Mat Cowley said he was more than happy with the sale results and particularly the clearance.
He was also happy with how the bulls presented this year.
"It's been one of our worse years at home (in Pinnaroo), so to still show such good growth with the bulls was pleasing," he said.
The sale was conducted by Landmark and Elders with Richard Miller and Tony Wetherall auctioneering respectively.
