It was an outstanding week away at the Rockhampton Brahman Week 2021 for local stud owners Steve and Sharon Turner who were left feeling “on cloud nine” after record sales for their cattle.

The Turner’s took six bulls from their stud’s Y3K and Wilarandy and averaged over $52,000 for their quality Brahman sires.

Y3K Galaxy was their best seller of the week who went to a buyer from Tieri for $100,000 who also snavelled up a second bull, Sir Gregor, for $55,000.

The second best price came from a buyer from Biloela who splashed $90,000 on Wilarandy Django.

Ms Turner said after a few hard years and recent tough conditions it was a dream come true to see their bulls do so well in the largest Brahman sale in the Southern Hemisphere.

“It’s really rewarding that someone else has thought so much of your product and business to invest that much money, it’s really like being on cloud nine.

“We don’t have the words to adequately describe how privileged we feel to see these boys going into such wonderful herds. Thank you, thank you, thank you to you all and we look forward to seeing some awesome progeny.”
