Defying Seasonal Conditions at Benelkay
Congratulations to Andrew and Jules Orman and family on committing to hold their 8th annual on property, Benelkay Poll Santa Gertrudis Bull Sale, achieving a top price of $16,000.00 for Lot 5, Benelkay Noteworthy (P).
The Orman’s rely so much on local support for their sale, and unfortunately their district is in dire straits from the worsening drought conditions and the worst rain fall deficiencies in recorded rainfall history in the Goolhi area.
Their on property annual Poll Bull Sale attracted around 100 interested people to see the 40 Poll bulls put up for auction. Defying the season the sale grossed $135,000, and averaged $5,625.00 on the sale day. Andrew and Jules were happy with the result considering the drought conditions that we have been experiencing over the last three years and were pleased with the commercial QLD support, as well as the loyal local buyers that support us every year.
