Buyers from around the country took up the opportunity to purchase fullblood Texas Longhorn genetics at the first Queensland sale in Roma on Saturday.
Crowds filled the grandstand and stood on catwalks to catch a glimpse of the 48 lots on offer from three vendors at the ‘Trails West’ Texas Longhorn Sale.
The sale averaged $2318 with a top of $8000 and 85 per cent clearance with some lots brought after the sale.
Michael and Lynda Bethel, Horseshoe B Longhorns, Charters Towers couldn’t wipe the smiles off their faces after topping the sale when their almost 11-month-old heifer, HBL Marianna, sold for $8000 to Brendan and Monique Schick, Crows Nest.
The full-blood heifer sired by Superman and out of HBL Malibu was the Bethel family’s youngest offering at the sale but they agreed she was a standout nonetheless.
The Bethel family sold six heifers to average $5333 with the Schick family purchasing half of their draft.
