On display will be the 12 bulls that are for sale at the Coolabunia Classic Charolais Bull Sale at the Coolabunia Saleyards on August 17.

The bulls will be weighed and semen tested before the open day, and they have all been fully vaccinated with 3 germ blood, 3 day sickness, 7 in 1, Pestigard and Vibrio.

Weaner bulls and heifers and some cows and calves will also be on display.

We are pleased to present a draft of 12 quality bulls this year. We will be at Lots 25 to 36, while 10 of the 12 bulls in the draft are polled or polled scurred.

The line-up of bulls is from River Run Nobleman (P/S) and Palgrove Nebraska (P), as well as some top AI sires.

River Run Nobleman (P/S) has proven himself to breed those thick, very commercially focused bulls with great structure and muscle, and should breed plenty of milk into his females. He has six sons in the sale.

Palgrove Nebraska (P) was purchased from the 2019 Palgrove sale for $26,000. He is a tremendous son of Winn Mann Skaggs with natural thickness, softness and amazing doing ability.

He is a Breedplan trait leader for 200 day growth, and is represented this year by two bulls.

In particular, Lot 25 River Run Sundance (P/S) is a standout by Silverstream Manhattan. He has that tremendous growth for age, and has that carcase combination of yield and fat cover and true sire appeal.

Lot 26 River Run Stampede (P) is a very long polled Panama son, and Lot 27 River Run Scooter (P/S) by Raille Sovereign is an extremely thick muscled bull on a moderate frame.

The walking sires of the sale bulls are used in our commercial herds as well as the stud, so it helps us to gauge the potential of the progeny.

We find that we can either sell weaners or take them through to background steers and heifers through for feeder cattle, or if the season allows grass finished Jap ox cattle.

We feel confident that these same genetics will perform in your herds as well. 

The bulls have been prepared on Oats and Riverina Maintenance pellets. Our bulls are breedplan recorded, fully vaccinated, and semen and morphology tested and we are tested as a JBAS 7 herd.

Our bulls are handled with dogs, horses, utes and buggys.

Please check the River Run Charolais social media page for videos and photos.

Please come along for a look at the bulls any time between 9am and 4pm on Saturday July 15.
