Golden Opportunity Female Sale Report

By Brad Wilson

The Kidman Poll Hereford Golden opportunity female sale lived up to it’s name when 100 of the best young females from the herd where offered by the Carlow family, Dubbo last Tuesday.

Selling to a high of $13,000 stud breeders along with commercial breeders looking to add quality genetics to their herds cleared all 64 cow and calf units (which included 40 plus E females with first calves at foot by Kidman Legacy).

Heifers sired by Tycolah Goldrush, Kidman Legacy D155, Columbian Image and other leading sires, joined to Wirruna Elder E327 were in demand selling to $4500 with 15 of the 19 finding new homes to average $2500, 15 of 20 unjoined heifers topped at $3000 four times, averaging $2033, while over $7000 worth of semen packages from breed leading sires sold to $60 per straw with the Kidman Legacy D155 and Kidman Conquer G076 packages attracting highest bids.

Stud Principal Nelson Carlow prior to the sale addressed the gallery saying that this golden opportunity female sale is just that.

These females are only being sold as we are wanting to reduce numbers, over eighteen months ago our family had a succession plan put into place which saw Rachel and I, along with my parents Neil and Jenny take on the Poll Hereford stud, while Randall and his wife Kylie took on the Angus herd.

This left us with less country and manpower to run the Poll Hereford Stud, he said.

The $13,000 sale top was outlaid by Graham Reeves, Reevesdale Poll Hereford Stud, Delungra for Kidman Florence E151 (P).

With a great bull calf at foot by Legacy and depastured to the same sire , Florence was by Allendale Timor B120 (P) out of Kidman Florence A222 (P), the Florence family descends back to Wootton heritage.

Peter Mills, Finley who is in the process of starting a small whiteface stud averaged $6250 for four females, which included the $9000 second top price.

Mr Mills manager, Barry Godbolt said they were attracted to the Kidman reputation; it is a good place to source foundation genetics.

Some of the twenty plus registered stud breeders to purchase included, Cloverlee Poll Herefords, Bannister, Tummel Herefords, Walcha, Rylstone Cattle Services, Rylstone, Wendouree Poll Herefords, Tara Queensland, Ironbark Glen Poll Herefords, Box Hill, Gimba Poll Herefords, Moree, JB Poll Herefords, Dubbo, The Ranch Poll Herefords, Tomingley and Weetaliba Poll Herefords, Gunnedah.

We were chasing cows with heifer calves at foot, I was attracted to Kidman for their integrity, honesty and quality of cattle, she said.

Other multiple buyers included Pejor Park, Bannister who secured for lots to a $7000 high, Diamond K Partnership, Tamworth purchased six, averaging $2250, while Steve Nolan, Taralga averaged $2444 for his draft of nine heifers.
