Brentvale Limousin stud held its inaugural production sale on Friday, held on AuctionsPlus, offering 23 cattle, six lots of four embryos, and six lots of 10 semen packages, with 13 cattle sold to a top of $9600 and a $6169 average.
Two embryo lots and all of the semen packages offered also sold.
The top price cow, the daughter of the National Champion Summit Payday tracing back to Abigail U2, was described as a larger-framed animal with tremendous muscling, structural soundness and breed character.
It sold with a black bull calf and was pregnancy-tested in-calf.
First-time buyer Aruma Limousin secured the top-price cow at $9600.
Aruma Limousin stud principal Phoebe Eckermann, Korunye, said she was delighted to buy the cow.
"It is an outstanding individual that proved to be excellent value," she said.
Brentvale Limousin stud principal Jason Foote, Senior, said it was pleasing to have sold stock Australia-wide for their first sale.
Spence Dix and Co agent Jonathon Spence said this time of year was when the stud cattle present their best.
"Mr Foote has been in the game for some time and had the numbers and quality to a level where he could sell," he said. "Demand is high for all breeding females at the moment and the sale proved to be a winner. He was well supported by people that have bought stock privately in the past."
