2012 SALE REPORT
A return to the spring on-property bull sale circuit paid dividends for David and Christine Dance and family who conducted their Dance Angus sale at Double D, Millmerran where bulls sold to $8000.
Dance Angus co-principal David Dance was satisfied with his sale’s outcome after a number of buyers expressed there was real value-for-money throughout the entire draft, especially given the quality on offer.
Marketing agents Landmark and GDL sold 72 Angus bulls for a $3993 average with a top of $8000 to mainly local, western and central western buyers and far north as Bundaberg.
Longreach-based private agent Cameron Elmes, Elmes Rural, Longreach who has been a regular supporter of the Dance cattle had an order from George and Anna Hetherington, Muyong, Longreach to bid the $8000 top money for the first bull in to the ring, Dance Tank F228.
The impressive son of Lawsons Tank X1235 displayed tremendous growth and muscling which recorded the IMF percentage of 6.3 ranking him in the top five percent of the breed.
Mr Elmes said Dance Tank had great thickness and was a well balanced individual and will go into the Hetherington’s Brahman cross herd.
Another private agent Nathan Purvis, Colin Say and Company, Glen Innes accompanied Ken Graham, Redcastle Farms, Lochvaran, Dundee, New South Wales who took home three quality bulls for a $4250 average.
Mr Graham said he was particularly impressed with the quality of the bulls and said he would have paid a lot more for his Angus bulls if he had sourced them locally.
“They represent great value given their quality, thickness and power,” said Mr Graham.
Another bulk buyer was the Batzloff family, Laguna, Augathella who accounted for five herd improvers for a $5400 average which included Dance Appeal F251, a superb son of J & C Appeal A10 which was ranked in the top five percent for yield at $6000.
