2024 Herefords Australia National Sale - Mawarra Lamborghini T329

20th May 2024

Held at the Wodonga Exhibition Centre on May 16, the National sale drew 126 registered buyers from NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and Tasmania competing on the junior, intermediate and senior horned and polled bulls from 45 vendors. 

The second top price of $34,000 was paid by Mark and Wendy Campion, Amos Vale Herefords, Pinkett, NSW, for Mawarra Lamborghini T329 (AI) (H), a 21 -month-old son of Mawarra If Only Q264 weighing 918kg, ranking top 9 per cent for intramuscular fat and sold by the Sykes family.  

Mr Campion liked the bull’s sire appeal, softness, length, depth, muscle and mobility. 

He will join the new sire with selected mature cows and heifers. 

“The good bulls sold well today, and people are selective which is reflective of the cattle market and season,” Mr Campion said.  

He said demand for Hereford genetics in the New England had been maintained and expected it to continue to improve following good general rainfall.
