More than 100 carefully produced Brahman bulls, females and genetic offerings have been selected for the third annual Great Northern Brahman Sale to be held on October 20th and 21st.

The sale begins Thursday October 20th from 5pm at the Airlie Beach Hotel where nearly 10 red and gray Brahman females as well as premium Brahman semen and embryo packs will be available for purchase.

The sale will then move to the Proserpine Showgrounds on Friday 21st October where from 11:00 am more than 70 Red Brahman bulls and a further 30 Red and Gray females will be up for sale.

Sales group spokesman James Kent, Kent Beef, said he and his fellow vendors are “extremely proud” to offer a range of Red Brahman bulls that they believe embody their respective breeding programs.

“As a supplier group, we are all focused on breeding Brahmins that are commercially relevant and industry oriented,” said Mr. Kent.

“We feel this year’s bull draft has strong carcass attributes, bone, weight for age, breed type and consistency, and there is a large polled offering that has the meat attributes expected of their horned counterparts.”

Mr Kent said the location and timing of the sale will provide Northern commercial producers with the opportunity to purchase high quality Red Brahman sires at the right time of year for spring entry, while also serving seed and high-end steer producers who may need during Brahman may have missed something this week.

“Lot 32 Cambil Gregory 6350 (PS) and Lot 45 Cambil Mandalay 6338 (PS) are bred from leading Red Brahman donor NCC Dienka 3652, sired by imported semen of polled Pathfinder and polled Pappo, both of superior length with strong Top lines and strong sire show attractiveness and are sure to attract the interest of leading commercial producers and stud masters alike.

“Lot 42 Ooline Elroy is another outstanding bull with the attributes one would expect from an Ooline Brahman bull with huge bones, growth appropriate for his age, loose skin and attractiveness as a bull.

The Greater Whitsunday Vets Genetics Sale begins on Thursday evening with lot 1 as a “pick of the pair”, where interested buyers can choose between two full sisters, both homozygous polled (PP) and guaranteed pregnant with the Houston Grand 2021 winning bull Mr. H Pride of Maddox.

“What a great opportunity to start this year’s auction with a selection from the pair, allowing potential buyers to choose between two great, outstanding gray bitches with a guaranteed pregnancy to one of America’s top Brahman bulls,” said Mr. Kent.

“Lot 4 of the night sale is one for the red stud masters, with Ooline Vienna (PS) being a dark red polled bitch who offers a unique pedigree giving her a lot of versatility with potential connections.

“There are also a number of seed packs that will appeal to buyers with the second offering of the $180,000 Nicneil Sugar Daddy alongside PP super sire Kenrol Darroca and the first release of import sire DB Betero 1/578 and the Pink-Nose -sire Carinya L Torrance .”

The six vendors for sale: Cambil, Ooline, Kent Beef, Badilla, Palm Creek and Burdekin are all family owned and operated by companies that all share a passion for breeding leading-edge Brahman genetics to improve the breed.

This year the sale will feature a range of bulls for the first time, with the first sale in 2020 offering heifers only, while in 2021 an online genetics sale took place during Beef Week and another heifer sale took place on the first weekend in October of the same year.

“In the last two years we have had great success offering red and gray Brahman females and genes. As this is the first year that bulls will be offered, the seller group is committed to ensuring the range is of the highest quality. Shoppers should get value for their purchases at this year’s sale.”
