The McLachlan Group bull breeding business will be holding its annual bull sale at the ‘North Logan’ property on North Logan Road, Cowra, on August 10. The sale will be the business’ fifth annual sale, and McLachlan Group’s Warren Miller said it should be a popular sale.
McLachlan Group is a bull breeding business that sells Angus bulls, Charolais bulls and Polhereford bulls. All of their bulls are grass fed, meaning they live longer, and produce better quality beef. The business mostly sells cattle directly to meat works businesses, but hosts its big annual sale once per year.
Mr Miller said the quality and performance of McLachlan Group’s bulls meant its bulls were very valuable. “We strive to make our bulls live as long as possible, and live a healthy life, which is why we grass feed them,” he said. “Our bulls are of the highest quality, which means our buyers get the best grass fed beef they can.”
Mr Miller said the past four annual sales, the previous two of which have been in Cowra and the two before in the Southern Highlands, have been hugely popular, with bulls selling for about $4000 each.
He expected the August 10 sale in Cowra to be similar. The sale will feature 35 Angus bulls, 20 Charolais bulls and 2 Polhereford bulls, with this sale being the first time the McLachlan Group has sold Polhereford bulls. With Angus bulls being the most popular for beef, Mr Miller said he expected these to sell fast.
Recent heavy rainfalls across the Central West have allowed the grass across the region to grown very green and lush, and Mr Miller said this has seen cattle sales across the region sell very well over the last couple of months. With cattle across the region being healthy at the moment, the price of them is also healthy, and recent sales across the region have been very healthy.
Mr Miller said this should help his sale reach good heights on August 10. “Locals have been getting great return on their bulls lately, and I think this will help us get good prices on our bulls,” he said. “The internal market is very strong at the moment, but with our bulls being 100 per cent grass fed, buyers on the day will get the best quality of bulls to buy as well, and that’s really what we’re about.”
The annual sale on Wednesday August 10 will start at 1pm at ‘North Logan’, and all cattle buyers in the region are being encouraged to attend.
