First time vendors at National Sale
23 Feb 2014
2013 was the first year that Riverton Brafords nominated bulls for the National Sale. The stud prepared and presented for sale two herd bulls about 30 months old and three young registered bulls just 22 months old. As first time vendors, four of the five bulls offered sold to first time buyers, and all the bulls averaged $3,400. Riverton will have bulls at the 2014 Sale.

Larry’s pride and joy, his race mare, Suite Annie was recently sold to one of the leading thoroughbred racing studs in New South Wales. She won four races for the Actons in Rockhampton, Gladstone and Emerald, but her breeding meant that she was more valuable as a brood mare. She was a half sister to one of Queensland’s best sprinting horses of the last three years, called Buffering.
The 2014 National Feature Show for the Braford breed was held at Theodore. Larry took down seven head of heifers for the prime cattle section, and won the Pen of Three Milk Tooth Heifers Class and came second in the Single Milk Tooth Heifer Class out of 14 mixed breed nominations.
