We would like to thank all the buyers, under-bidders & staff that helped make the 2013 Trio Angus Bull Sale a success.


There was a 100% clearance of the 35 bulls offered. The overall sale average was $5074 with a top of $9000 reached twice. The 23 two year old bulls sold to an average of $5413 whilst the 12 sixteen month old bulls averaged $4375.


Bulls sold to both new & repeat clients from the local district & throughout northern NSW. Whilst commercial cattlemen dominated the buying two bulls were also purchased by other Angus studs, including Lot 26 Trio Bojangles H30 purchased by Mountain Valley Angus at Coolatai.


Many comments were made at the sale that the performance & preparation of the Trio Angus bulls was comparable to other leading Angus studs in the business. People also appreciated the exceptional temperament of the bulls.


The sale was conducted using the Helmsman Auction System & included a video preview of each lot. Buyers commented that the selling system was easy to understand & that they enjoyed the low stress environment of the sale. Buyers also indicated that the free delivery & other services that Trio Angus provides to their clients is very valuable.


We still have a small selection of bulls for private sale, please contact us for details.
