New faces littered the stands at the ANC Charolais sale on Friday, as the strong bull market pushes people further afield to find their new sires.

Stud buyers paid big money to take home the new genetics on their wishlists, while commercial cattlemen consistently outlaid solid bids, to see Andrew and Norah Cass' lineup of 109 bulls cleared for an average of $13,284 and top price of $45,000.


The top money came early in the catalogue when Ryan and Rachel Holzwart, Bauhinia Park Charolais, Emerald, secured ANC Q Pac (P) - a bull that the Cass family had originally intended to keep.

Sired by ANC Mac (P) and out of ANC Wilmuri, the 25-month-old tipped the scales at 884 kilograms, with an eye muscle area of 148 square centimetres, P8 and rib fat of 9mm and 7mm respectively, and intramuscular fat of 4.8 per cent.


With a scrotal circumference of 43cm, Q Pac had semen motility of 75pc and morphology of 81pc.

His performance topped that of stablemate ANC Q Electric (P), who had previously held top honours with a bid of $35,000.
