Strong results at the National Braford Sale

12 Sep 2014

Riverton Brafords had a great result at the 2014 National Bull Sale earlier this week. We topped the herd bull prices with $9,000 for our Lot 35, and got a wonderful average of $6,000 for our three bulls sold. We thank the Bennett family from Little Valley Stud at Casino for buying our herd bull , and also the buyers of our two young Registered bulls. As a new stud at our second National Sale, we are thrilled to have achieved better than the sale average for our bulls.

Suite Annie

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.
