Happy Easter 2021

And just like that it is the 1st of April. We’ve been racking our brains to come up with a good April Fools but alas we are at a loss. Instead we will let you know what’s been happening at Wattle Grove and what we have coming up in the next few months.

Twilight Sale

27th February saw us take over the Toowoomba Showgrounds to hold our annual Twilight Sale. We always like creating an event for our Twilight Sale and with over 400 people in attendance, plenty of food and drinks and live music it certainly had a festival atmosphere. We thank everyone that made the trip to come and enjoy the night with us and especially the buyers and under-bidders as a sale simply cannot happen without you.

Sale results

29/31 Bulls sold to $65000 Average $12603

6/6 embryo packages sold to $3200/embryo Average $2650

So what’s next?

We are Rockin’ at Rocky!

In conjunction with Beef Australia 2021 at Rockhampton we are holding a Bull Sale. 27 lots of high quality Queensland raised purebred registered Speckle Park bulls will sell from 6pm, Wednesday 5th May at our trade sites CP38-41.

This will be a live auction onsite with online bidding available through Elite Livestock Auctions. The catalogue and sale videos will be released in the next couple of weeks. This really is a high quality line up of 15-24 month old bulls all blooded, semen tested and ready to go to work. All sale bulls will be onsite for the week to give you plenty of time for inspections and to chat about the benefits of Speckle Park in your program. Request a printed catalogue

 

We will also be exhibiting in the Nutrien Livestock Stud Cattle Competition with Speckle Park Judging to take place on Tuesday 4th May.
