Records broken at Millah Murrah Angus Female Sale

The Millah Murrah Angus Female sale held near Bathurst, New South Wales topped $190,000 for an Angus heifer – smashing all records and expectations.

The sale was the largest in Millah Murrah’s 50 year history and Elders Bathurst’s livestock team were the sole selling agent, working tirelessly behind the scenes and on the day to ensure the sale’s success.

The sale broke records in the early stages, selling a cow for $54,000 to East West Angus from Bingara, which surpassed the previous record of $48,000. Lot 181, a heifer known as Prue M4 sold for $190,000 to Brooklana Angus, which is known to be the highest price paid for a beef female of any breed in Australasia, and the highest price for an Angus animal of any description in Australia (surpassing the previous record of $150,000 for a Millah Murrah bull sold in 2015).

Elders Bathurst branch manager, Andrew Bickford says the day was not one that anyone will forget in a hurry.
