Commercial cattlemen pushed the Dunlop Santa Gertrudis sale result to new heights when 83 bulls sold to average $9054 and record a 100 percent clearance. 

For stud principals Scott and Rebecca Dunlop the result was very pleasing. 

“We are exceptionally happy with this result, and pleased with the strong commercial buying support and repeat clients operating,” Mr Dunlop said. 

In a further breakdown of the sale, 64 classified “S” bulls averaged $9383, while the 19 herd bulls average $76947. Overall the sale average was up $2061 on the previous year’s result. 

A top price of $26,000 was achieved on two occasions. 

First to sell for the top money was Dunlop Quantum L834, a son of Dangarfield Quinalow from a Dunlop female with weight of 925kg and EMA of 125sq cm.

He was selected by Duaringa district cattle producers Rob and Dolly Sirven of RTS Cattle Co. 

A new buyer, Mr Sirven said he was impressed with the quality draft of bulls presented for sale.

The Sirvens breed for the specialised EU-HQB (high-quality beef) market, and believe the Dunlop-bred bulls with their bone and traits would suit their market requirements.

The Sirvens continued buying and finished with six bulls to average $15,216.

Bidding by telephone to buy Dunlop Quicksilver L224 was Seawright Investments, Clermont. 

Dunlop Quicksilver L224, is a son of Yarrawonga Yardstick E130.

Paying to $22,000 for Dunlop Quandrant L228 (P) was Brisbane Valley cattle producer, David Gregor, Esk. 

The Atkinson family, Cardona Santa Gertrudis Stud, Blackwater also paid $22,000 for Dunlop Quambone L390 (P).

A stylish clean polled sire with a tidy underline, Dunlop Quambone L390 (P) is by Warenda Darcy from a Yarrawonga Yardstick female Dunlop H105. 

Craig Hindle, Bullamakinka Santa Gertrudis Stud, Hannaford, paid $16,00 for Dunlop Quentin L134 (P).

By the home-bred sire Dunlop Ninja, he weighed 865kgs and an EMA 131sq cm.
