Vision for the sale

“The preferred place to buy and sell Simmental Bulls in Australia”

In 2017 a number of Simmental Breeders saw the need for one Simmental Bull sale based close to the Fitzoy Basin in Queensland. The sale provides buyers the opportunity to purchase all of their Simmental Bulls at one time saving on both travel costs and time whilst also providing access to new and varied genetics.

Foundation vendors also identified that sale conditions needed to be extremely tight to ensure that only the highest quality of bulls are offered and that ongoing participation in the sale needed to be based on performance (selling average and clearance rates).
