WA Livestock Salesmen’s Association held its Supreme Bull Sale in Brunswick last week, with 88 bulls put through the sale ring.

WALSA, a joint venture between Nutrien and Elders, held the auction last Wednesday at the iconic Brunswick Showgrounds.

There was an honest effort for visitors to greet each other in a different manner, although not even the coronavirus could hold off the odd handshake or hug.

The Alan Evans Cattle Selling Complex had quite a few empty seats, but about 100 people took up a seat with plenty of space between small groups.

The Patterson family, of Bullock Hills Simmental stud, at Katanning, put up a bull to raise funds for The Perkins Institute of Medical Research, which yielded a $3500 donation.

Bullish bidding confidence from Phil Musitano, of Brunswick, and Hereford breeding prowess from Yallaroo studmaster Rob Francis, of Vasse, put together the $18,500 top-price at the WALSA WA Supreme Bull Sale.
