8th Annual Bull Sale 2019
100% Sale Clearance
COFFIN CREEK NEW LINES TO $15,000
- The Land, written by Lisa Duce 22.08.19
COFFIN Creek is not an unknown in the Angus world but their eighth annual bull sale held on-property on Thursday was a first for the White brothers Jack and Harry.
With a very proud father, Nigel watching on, the boys offered 36 of their line of bulls that they had worked on over the past few years. They sold 34 of the 36 at auction with the two remaining bulls selling straight after the sale giving a 100 per cent clearance for the day. The auction averaged $5666.
With furious bidding to start the sale, Coffin Creek P41 topped the day at $15,000. The 16 month-old Matauri Reality 839 son who had a 400-day weight in the top two per percentile and an eye muscle area (EMA) of 100 centimeters was sold to return buyer Dougal Kelly, Wallah, Rugby.
As one of two volume buyers, Mr Kelly also purchased two other bulls, Coffin Creek P20 and Coffin Creek P74 for a draft average of $10,000. "I liked his length and his potential as a heifer bull." Mr Kelly said. "He ticks all the boxes with performance, his ease of calving and his high Intramuscular Fat (IMF), he is an exceptional bull." We will join about 1000 females this year and these three bulls will join the heifers soon.
"The White boys have had a steady progression upwards in the quality of their cattle, they are breeding what the market is after, performance and versatility."
Also securing three bulls were the Parry Trust, Willow Tree. They topped their draft at $6000 for an average of $6000. A further eight buyers took home two bulls each.
Coffin Creek co-principal, Jack White was extremely pleased with the sale. "It was lovely to see the first bull recognised, he is a really good bull." He said. "It is nice to see our work come to fruition this year. We are not changing a lot but adding technology to our program and driving some figures into the herd and maintaining the type of our cattle. It is great to see the new sire lines sell really well. We had return buyers from Victoria and locally. We also had a lot of new buyers which is very pleasing."
The sale was conducted by McDonald Lawson, Mudgee with Paul Dooley manning the rostrum.
7th Annual Bull Sale 2018
100% Sale Clearance
Our 7th Annual Bull sale was held on Thursday 23rd of August 2018. Despite trying seasonal conditions for much of regional NSW throughout 2018, the bulls were very well supported, resulting in a fantastic sale outcome. 100% of the 37 bulls offered sold to a top of $15,000 and an overall average of $6459. We were extremely pleased to see 21 of the 37 bulls sell to new clients spread right across NSW and into Victoria as well. It was great to see long term repeat clients competing hard for the top end bulls. The Combes family from Lue Station purchased lot 4, a Millah Murrah Klooney son for $15,000. Another long term client Dick Croake, representing the Blackwell family, purchased 3 bulls on the day, including lot 5, a Te Mania Emperor son for $15,000. As well as around Mudgee, bulls went to a massive spread around NSW to commercial operations at Bylong, Rylstone, Mandurama, Oberon, Wagga Wagga, Bourke, Guyra and across the border to Dumbalk, Victoria. We look forward to hearing feedback on the cattle and eagerly await some rain in the coming months.
6th Annual Bull Sale 2017
Pictured above: Lot 8 & 9 who sold for $12,000 & $14,000 respectively.
Coffin Creek hosted another strong sale at our 6th Annual Bull Sale. With by far the largest crowd to date, bulls were very well received with 36 bulls selling to a top of $14,000 at an average of $7694. As always, buyers competed hard for the younger draft of bulls, whose group averaged a touch under $8000. It was great to see so many bulls go to new homes, including commercial operations at Ben Lomond, Buladelah, Willow Tree and Cassilis. Long time clients, the Pemberton Family, paid $12,000 for the outstanding young sire Lot 8 M61 who weighed 720kgs at 16 months of age. Repeat buyer Dick Croake, representing FM & MH Blackwell, paid the top price of the day; $14,000 for Lot 9, Coffin Creek Mudgee M73. Both the high selling bulls were sons of Coffin Creek Joker J202 who topped our sale in 2015. Repeat, volume buyers took bulls to Molong, Merriwa and Rylstone Districts. The commercial EU Heifers on offer topped at $1550/head to an average of $1372. A fantastic sale for us here, and great to see plenty of our long term clients buying good quality, affordable Angus bulls.
