Elders at Beef21 – day four
As the crowds continue to flow through the gates on day four of Beef Australia 2021, the Elders Stud Stock team have been busy wrapping up sales both online and in-person.
With a top price of $45,000 for the opening lot, the Wattle Grove Speckle Park ‘Rockin’ at Rocky’ Bull Sale kicked off with a bang; finishing with a 100 per cent clearance and an average of just under $13,000.
“The sale was a perfect result for our clients.” said auctioneer Lincoln McKinlay.
“We worked out close to 80 per cent were new clients to the stud, which gives you an idea of the power of hosting a sale at an event like Beef Australia.”
“We always aim to the best result for our clients, and this week we achieved that.”

In addition to conducting sales, the Elders Stud Stock team have been busy meeting with clients from across Australia at the biggest event on the beef industry calendar.
“Not only is this an important event for our agents, those clients who have traveled a long way really find the value in coming to this event.” says Lisa Hedges, Elders QLD Stud Stock.
“Networking is serious business at Beef Australia and the ability to come together to have those conversations is essential for the growth of the industry.”
“For our team in Elders Stud Stock, we wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
Looking back on a record year of online livestock sales, Paul Holm (QLD/NT State Livestock Manager) says that he is impressed with amount of seedstock breeders who adapted to the digital marketplace over the past 12 months.
“With COVID-19 restricting on-farm auctions, we know that many bull sales had to go online.” said Mr Holm.
“We see time-and-time-again just how quickly this industry needs to adapt to change, and it’s really positive to see how well the beef industry adjusted to making those important annual purchases online.”
“Going forward, adaptability and innovation will be the key to success in beef.”
“Those who are able to keep up will be the real winners.”
