Monterey Murray Grey Stud Sale Results

February 13, 2015

A TOP line-up of Murray Grey and Angus bulls combined with a long list of old and new buyers pushed prices to a high of $11,500 for a Murray Grey sire at this week’s Monterey Murray Grey and Angus on-property sale at Karridale.

With the beef market humming along buyers showed their confidence in the industry as they cleared 84 of the 86 bulls offered for an average of $5384, which was up $523 on last year.

Last year, 70 bulls sold from 79 offered at an average of $4861.

In the breakdown Monterey stud principals Gary and Julie Buller, with help of the combined Elders and Landmark selling teams, cleared 50 from 52 Murray Grey bulls for an average of $5730 and 34 from 34 Angus bulls at an average of $4875.

It didn’t take long for the tone of the sale to be set and the $11,500 top price to be achieved.

As soon as the well-built, classy Monterey Jurassic J99 in lot one entered the ring, buyers realised there was something special before them and after some quick fire bidding the bull was knocked down to return buyers Maxine and Penny Greville, Gingin Pastoral Co, Gingin, at $11,500.

The silver, 838kg Jurassic was by Monterey Bodybuilder and out of a Monterey Unit Holder Z16 daughter.

In the ring Jurassic showed great depth, smooth shoulders and softness to fit all markets, but it wasn’t only Jurassic’s eye appeal which impressed it also had the numbers to match.

It had EBVs of +6.2 birthweight, +28, +44, +68 for 200, 400 and 600-day weights (top 15pc), +33 carcase weight, +2.4 EMA (top 5pc), +0.6 rib fat, +0.8 rump fat (top 10pc) and 0.0 for IMF, while its indexes stood at +$32 for long fed, +$37 for supermarket and +$61 for heavy grass.

Two other bulls in the Murray Grey line-up made double figures when they were knocked down at $11,000 and $10,000.
