MT MABLE ANGUS
35th ANNUAL 2 YEAR OLD ON FARM BULL SALE 2020
2020’s 2 year old Mt Mable Angus bull sale has cemented our reputation for quality and highly sought after bulls – in a year which can only be described as dreadful for many farming families, with the doubly whammy of severe drought and Covid 19, the astute, established and experienced farming buyers of Mt Mable bulls turned up in force on the 8th of June and rewarded us for the last three years of effort – that is, from mating planning, calving and growing out this year’s sale bulls. Full clearances have been hard to achieve for many studs around the country, however all 41 bulls put up for auction on the 8th June sold under the hammer with an average of $10,439 and a top commercial price of $17,500. A stud bull, Lot 12, was sold to Cricklewood Angus for $14,000. Cricklewood Angus have enjoyed having the Mt Mable Thor 660 sired Rangatira 13-38 ($100,000 2015 sale bull) and another Rangatira bred Thor son bought in 2017 breeding well for them. The Friel family takes this opportunity to thank all buyers, underbidders, Agents and Stock firms who contributed to our exciting day. Special thanks to auctioneer Cam Heggie from PGG Wrightson and all our wonderful yard and kitchen helpers.
