The rock-solid performance of the Anvil Angus dispersal sale continued throughout day two of the two-day sale.

The top money recorded on day two was $35,000 for donor cow Anvil Ella H036 who was purchased by Spring Hill Angus, Woodlands, NSW.

However, it didn’t stop there.

A daughter of the $52,000 sale topper from day one Anvil Lowan N396 sold to Adameluca Angus, Kyneton, for $21,000 making her the top price heifer of the sale.

Adameluca also partnered up with Ardrossan Angus, Holbrook, NSW, to purchase a full sister to the $17,500 heifer from day one in Anvil Jilt N436 for $18,000.

Commenting after the sale Anvil Angus principal Stephen Handbury said in some ways day two proved even better than the previous day. The rock-solid performance of the Anvil Angus dispersal sale continued throughout day two of the two-day sale.

Commenting after the sale Anvil Angus principal Stephen Handbury said in some ways day two proved even better than the previous day.

“There was a lot of interest and competition on the heifers directly related to the big money females of day one”.

“It is also fair to say that we saw an increase in the activity on AuctionPlus and phone orders, which could be attributed to the value that we saw on the first day” Mr Handbury said.

The volume buyers from day one were again active.

Palgrove Pastoral increased their draft to 52 females with Palgrove genetics manager Ben Noller taking advantage of an opportunity to increase the top end of the Palgrove seedstock herd.

“Stephen’s passion for Angus cattle and the amount of time and effort applied to the cow herd shows through in the quality of the offering”

“We have been able to put together a draft of clean skinned maternal type cows with plenty of volume” Mr Noller said.

Likewise, Frank and Andis Sorraghan, Wagga Wagga, NSW, increased their selection to 49 females.

East West Angus, Bingara, NSW, continued their buying efforts with a total of 46 females and two semen packages.

While Larnoo Ag, Yea, purchased 34 females in total.

Twenty-four donor cows topped at $52,000 and averaged $9708.

Two hundred and thirty-three cows and calves averaged $3689.
