Andrew Masterson Angus & Simmentaler

Sale Report 2019

After skipping a year there was great anticipation for the Milagro offering which included the winner of the Gold cup at the Royal Show, the black Angus bull Milagro Quebec, and the Simmentaler bull Premier who many pundits thought should have been the winner at the same show. The entire offering was outstanding with high quality females also on offer.

The sale was held in atrocious weather conditions where at certain times it was difficult to hear the auctioneer Brandon Leer above the wind.

There was good interest but the prices did not live up to expectations and buyers went away with huge smiles on their faces. Premier, who was subsequently voted the world Simmentaler champion was knocked down to Gert Nienaber from Moedwil for R90 000 Tubby du Preez from Kinkelbos bought lot 5, a proven Simmentaler sire in the Milagro herd for R68000. The top priced Angus Bull was lot 41, Quebec, who sold for the knockdown price of R68000 to Obakeng Mfikwe from Lichtenberg. The female prices were very up and down where decernning buyers put down the accelerator and paid good money for what they wanted. See summary for prices and buyers.

Andrew and Colette must be congratulated on the offering and their attitude towards meeting the market. They wish all buyers well with their purchases and thank everyone for their support.
