Market Summary

Gavin Tickle, TopX Gracemere

The last 3 years of the beef industry has been a rollercoaster to say the least with record highs and lows. Within the market over this period the one trend that has been consistent is the premium given to cross bred weaner/feeder cattle with 50% or greater Bos Taurus content (flatbacks).

It’s common knowledge how well Brahman cows handle the challenges the Queensland environment throws at producers. For these reasons the Queensland Simmental Bull Sale presents a wonderful opportunity for producers to diversify and aim for a higher valued market without changing their base breeder herd.

What sets this sale apart from other Simmental Bull Sales?

Brad Mullvihill, TopX Gracemere

“It’s a number of things”, said Brad. Firstly, the timing of the sale, being in late July the sale gives producers plenty of time to settle the bulls in at home before using them regardless of their joining period.

Secondly the sale terms and conditions, the unity from the vendors to meet and exceed these ensures the quality of the bulls presented are of an extremely high standard and gives buyers confident in the article they are purchasing. Follow-up and support, TopX and the sale vendors are here to support buyers post their purchase to ensure the bulls get home safely and meet expectations.

Continuous improvement & listening to feedback from the Producer. In early 2024 the sale contacted all previous purchasers from the sale (that contact details are available for) seeking their feedback on previous sales and to identify suggested improvements to the sale. Each year the sale seeks to ensure the type of bull presented is suitable to the market and that the sale experience and post-sale service is improved.
