Glatz's Black Angus hits $15,500 high with strong local support
The first sons to sell in Australia from an exciting New Zealand sire, Storth Oaks Jack 7, turned plenty of heads at Glatz's Black Angus stud's 13th annual Cattleman's Bull Sale at Avenue Range on Wednesday last week.
It helped Ben and Samantha Glatz post one of their best sale results, with 62 of 64 good type bulls backed with strong Breedplan data, averaging $7741.
This was up nearly $1500 on 2019's sale when 60 of 70 bulls sold.
20k Half Share Sold in
Glenoch JK Makahu M602
Avenue Range-based Glatz's Black Angus stud has sold a half share in one of its top stud sires for $20,000 to another local stud, Mandayen at Keith.
The rising four-year-old bull, Glenoch JK Makahu M602, caught the eye of Mandayen Stud principal, Damian Gommers when he delivered a bull to Glatz's stud in February.
"We had been searching the country for the last 12 to 18 months for a calving ease bull and found him in our own backyard.
"He has a great balance of figures with calving ease but still enough performance but also the structure and phenotype that we look at first - he is the total package."
