The ANC Charolais on-property sale near Gulguba on Friday twice hit a top of $15,000, with an average of $6443.
The on-property sale near Gulugaba on Friday drew buyers from all over Queensland, as well as one Victorian buyer.
Of the 102 bulls on offered, 70 sold for a clearance of 69pc.
The first bull to hit the $15,000 top price was ANC Oakey (P), bought by Ken and Jackie Knudsen, Kilbeggan, Chinchilla.
The two-year-old son of ANC Jubilant from ANC Lorinsi's Netty weighed 970kg with P8 and rib fat of 12mm and 8mm, intramuscular fat of 5.4 per cent, 146 sq cm eye muscle area and 40cm scrotal circumference.
"He's a nice bull, good weight for age... he'll go well over the Santa cows that we're putting him over," Mr Knudsen said.
"I've had their bulls before and they do a good job, and they're close."
He was one of four bulls bought by the Knudsens.
The next $15,000 bull was bought by Chas and Judy Nobbs, Cordelia, Bauhinia, who were looking for polled bulls with good conformation.
