There were a vast number of clients that utilized Glenlands genetics and offered these for sale in the recent spring 2020 sales.

Just one example of these was the Emerald based prefix, Waylanbar, operated by Wayne and Lana Barnes. Their draft of bulls featured eight sons of the 2016 sale graduate, Utopia in the National Droughtmaster Sale. Although this $7000 son of Resolution is only into his second season of sale bulls they struck accord with buyers with the eight topping at $55,000 to average $16,500. Top of the draft was the impressive Waylanbar Hercules (P) (first image) who was offered in a three quarter share full possession arrangement. Hercules was from an Angle Zed Commandante/ Jericho bred female and sold to Aston and Amellia Price, Moura. Another of the Utopia sons fetched $20,000 was Waylanbar Holeshot (P) a bull from a Vitwood Padstow (Megabyte)/Incite) dam. Waylanbar Hank (P) (IVF) (AI) (second image) sold for $22,000. However, Hank was not one of the Utopia sons to be offered by the stud. He (Hank) was a Pacific/ 2453 (Mild Water) configured male that was purchased as a sexed embryo from the ‘Beef Genetic Focus Sale’ conducted during Beef 2018. Waylanbar finished with a healthy average of $18,667 for their nine bulls.

Other notables in the National Sale were sons of Rambo (Maxamillion) selling for $20,000 for the Waringle and Skye stables. Skye also sold sons of the 2016 sale topper, the $60,000 Talbot (K.B) (S) for sums of up to $14,000. The El-Jay prefix from Rolleston had sales of $12,500 for their progeny by Substitute (Maranoa). A trio of sons by Ultraviolet (Que Sera) averaged $16,000 to top at $20,000 for the Rondel Stud, Winton. Pistol (Lazarus) sons sold for highs of $17,000 to average $11,000 while Pattern (Hadleigh) sons fetched sums of $16,000 to average $10,000 for the Karragarra Stud, Emerald. Ultimatum (P) (O’Shea) sons made to $8000 for the Heck stable, Byrvonlea with the Carter family, Jemcar Stud, Gympie also offering bulls by the same sire to sell for highs of $8000. Tactician (H) (K.B.) progeny selling to $9000 for the Vale View operation, Kilkivan.

The top selling $22,000 bull at the recent Bullzeye Sale, Capella was offered by the Rondel prefix and was sired by Umpire (D) (K.B). Umpire is a son of the leading female Pandora (Kipper).

Second top at the same sale was the $16,000 Skye Fleming (Talbot) offered by the Skye operation, Alpha.
