The Nitschke have been breeding shorthorns for many generations and produce bulls for their properties at Padthaway in the southeast and for their station at Brokenhill.

Reg and Rebecca Woodiwiss or Royston Shorthorns travelled from Sunnyside in Tasmania to secure Lot 4 – Futurity Moonlight M278 for $18000. The Woodiwiss family have had great success with progeny of a bull they purchased out of the sale 3 years ago. Mr Woodiwiss commented “We’ve achieved even, consistent lines and that’s why we’ve come back,” he said.

Volume buyers included Australian Agricultural Company securing 5 bulls to use in their composite breeding program aiming to increase fertility and meat quality over their Queensland based Bos indicus herd.

A large percentage of the bulls will go into herds producing cattle for the JBS Thousand Guineas Shorthorn Beef program to aim at gaining the premium price for their product. The introduction of new purchasers will see 12 bulls going into black herds and 6 into natural organic grass fed production systems.

We would also like to thank the team of people who help make this happen including Nik Hannaford and his team at Elders Gunnedah, Joel Flemming and his team at Landmark Tamworth, Michael Smith for auctioneering, Elders and Landmark Stud Stock, Fergus Job & Lane Evans, The catering ladies who are always welcoming and have a delicious array of morning tea. Last but definitely not least Tom Anderson and William Saul who are here year round helping out with the day to day events and always prepared to go the extra mile, we truly appreciate you being part of the team.
