Lot 1 bull Bimbadeen SAXON S55 took the top honours, at a stud record price of $32,500. He will head north to take up stud duties with Gromac Brangus.

In all we had 23 repeat buyers in the stands or online bidding – they may not have all picked up the lots they were chasing but we deeply appreciate EACH and every one of you! So wonderful to see new faces and names too – I haven’t been able to mention every buyer here, but we value your belief and investment enormously.
Remember, we look forward to seeing what your Bimbadeen purchases do in your herd – we love to hear back and see your babies on the ground too!
