Premium Wagyu Sale results

March sale results


The March Premium Wagyu Sale attracted a good a good cross section of entries from all Eastern and Southern Australia. The catalogue format was improved to provide more breeding information. The catalogue was online earlier than previous sales which allowed for more pre-sale marketing to be done with the AWA and Ruralco databases, Facebook and Beef Central.

So with the largest entry yet, an improved catalogue format and a wider marketing programme, we were anticipating a strong sale. Unfortunately, there were less registered bidders and active bidders than the December sale (March 2018 Registered Bidders 45 /Active Bidders 12 vs December 2017 Registered Bidders 56 /Active Bidders 21).

The sale results in the closure of the sale were disappointing with minimal live cattle sold. The embryos and semen met fair demand. However, there was plenty of activity from potential Buyers after the sale. After 2 weeks of negotiating post sales, we have sold 37 lots out of the 72 offered. This compares to the December sale of 32 lots sold out of 52 offered. Buyers came from Queensland, NSW, Tasmania and South Australia. Surprisingly there were no buyers from Victoria, where one would expect demand from the autumn calving breeders.
