The 24-month-old Bokara Freightliner son Clay Gully Karaka K635 went under the hammer for $15,500 at the Clay Gully Simmental Invitational Sale selling to Gowrie Pastoral Co, Gowrie, Charleville.

Making second top price was Clay Gully Kenya K649 who was snapped up for $15,000 by the Hampson family, Springfield Simmentals, Monto. Kenya, offered by the Laycock family, was by the sire Barana Earlwood (P).

Volume buyers included Scott Phillis, Carlow Creek Trading, Carlo Creek, Dingo who took home three bulls to average $9500, Larissa Finger put together a line of three bulls to average $8000 for her family, Laurie Jones, Mato, Theodore took home three to average $6833, Milroy Pastoral, Bollier had three to average $4667 and Alan and Julie Hay, Blairgowie, Jericho took home three to average $9333.

Roger and Cynthia Draper, Goodwood near Woodgate were repeat buyers at the Clay Gully Sale. The Drapers have been purchasing Clay Gully Simmentals for around 15 years. Now semi-retired they run about 300 Brahman cross cows and supply the progeny to a backgrounder who sends the heifers to the Coles yearling market, he then keeps the steers to fatten to bullocks. 

The Draper family’s  buyer particularly likes the Simmental content and believes the coastal cattle perform very well. 

Unfortunately the Draper family’s ability to run more cattle has been severely hindered from the vegetation laws which has impacted on about 2000 hectares of their country.
