Thank you once again to our buyers, bidders, agents, suppliers, Mataranka locals
and friends for supporting our 3rd Annual Coodardie Brahmans Grass Fed Bull and Female
Sale. Without you all it is not possible.
Mataranka local and past NTCA president, Rohan Sullivan secured the top priced bull,
Coodardie Big Bill, for $2900.Bulk buyer of the sale was Basil from Jindare Station,
Pine Creek, taking home 21 bulls. This included red polled bull Coodardie Love Me
Tender for $2500.Stuart Austin, of Mataranka Station bought 3 highly fertile young
bulls.Two pens of light red heifers went to Darryl and Gill at Adelaide River and
a pen of red heifers to Patrick O’Brien.The balance of the grey bulls and heifers
sold to WA indigenous corporation, Mowantjum. It was a tough market and some stock
were taken home due to lack of bidders.
The Sport and Rec Grounds looked a picture – Council staff efforts and assistance
was much appreciated. Heaps of tempting and tasty foods kept us, our guests and clients
well fueled throughout the day thanks to the Mataranka Better Half Club. And it was
with pleasure that we were once again able to have the Mataranka Primary School come
and visit the sale to learn more of the Cattle Industry and the selling process –
plus come and pat Coodardie Love Me Tender! Thank you all.
Thanks from Mike, Clair, Moira and all the team at Coodardie Brahmans.
