The upstanding 902kg Young Guns Lusty L49 sold to repeat buyer Gavin Auld, of Merredin, who runs a pure Murray Grey herd.

Mr Bagshaw said Lusty had colossal volume, great length and was very sound and structurally correct, and would breed true to type like its sire, YG Grand Slam.

“Lusty’s dam (YG Primrose U7) has been very successful in the stud,” he said.

Seven buyers were bidding on the Murray Grey catalogue, with three new buyers securing bulls, including account P and A Alvaro, of Merredin, which paid $5750 for YG Las Vegas L45.

Another $5750 equal second top-priced bull, YG Leroy L22, was bought by repeat buyer BW James and Sons, of Hyden, who secured a total of five Young Guns bulls for an average of $4550.
