AVABUNDY Charolais held its 5th annual on property sale on Monday, April 8. Owned by the McKnight family and located in Buffalo, the stud has been breeding quality charolais cattle since 2006.

The sale, which Ryan McKnight said attracted a good crowd of buyers, saw 23 of Avabundy’s registered bulls go under the hammer.

“Buyer strength was down a bit on last year, but that is probably a reflection of the current market and seasonal conditions,” he said.

At the sale, 14 of the 23 bulls sold, with the average down by $200.

Ryan said there was strong demand for the polled bulls offered, with all finding new homes.

“The remaining bulls are for private sale and can be purchased through any agent. Figures on the bulls are available as clients find this information important,” he said.

“Registered bulls come with figures and the buyer gets scan data, so they know more about the bull. They get the bull’s background, parentage and how he is expected to breed.

“Our bulls are vet checked and scanned and carry a guarantee, which you mightn’t get when buying from other sources.”

The majority of the 14 bulls sold went to East Gippsland, including Bairnsdale and Traralgon, while some stayed in the local area.
