Kunuma Angus stud held its annual southern bull sale through Greenwood Livestock at Sale last Friday.
Stud principal Dean Lynch said the contrast in weather form their on-property sale the previous week was dramatic to the sunshine at Sale.
Last week on the Monaro high plains, conditions were terrible and these bulls had been prepared for transport in the snow.
Kunuma hold its annual bull sale at Sale because of the strong report they receive from the area annually.
Regular buyers purchased all 24 bulls on offer, going to Bairnsdale through to South Gippsland.
Robyn Kuch, a repeat buyer, paid the top price again this year, paying $6200 for lot 6, Kunuma M151 (AI), whose 600-day weight gain indicator was +101.
A major buyer was Snady Camp, Seaspray, purchasing six bulls to $4000.
All Kunuma Angus bulls were sold for an average price of $3478, which was very pleasing to the Lynch family.
Three generations of the family, Keith, Dean and Mitch were all at the sale.
Dean Lynch addressed the crowd before the sale and told of the very tough conditions in the Monaro district this year.
Adding to this, Dean commented on how well the bulls presented considering the tough year, and thanked the crowd for attending their sale.
