Speckle Park auction at Royal Melbourne Show Results in World Record Sale

A live auction for this year’s feature cattle breed, Speckle Park, was held at the Royal Melbourne Show on Saturday 30 September with a world record price reached for one of twelve females sold on the night. 

Fetching $31,000 ‘Six Star Tammy’ from Six Star Speckle Park, was sold to Hidden Valley Speckle Park after a bidding war saw 10 bidders push the price to a world record for a female of the breed.

The auction, which was coordinated by the Victorian Branch of the Speckle Park Breeders in conjuction with The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, was held after the Speckle Park feature show on Saturday afternoon, which resulted in another world record with 90 exhibits participating, the biggest showing of the breed ever in the world.

All 12 female cattle sold with an average price of over $13,500. Nine bulls were also all sold in the auction, with the highest selling being another Six Star animal reaching $22,000 and reaching an average of just over $8,900 per lot.

It was a big day for Six Star breeder Greg Ebbeck and team, who earlier in the day were also awarded Supreme Exhibit with bull Six Star Premier.

“We are thrilled with the outcome of the Speckle Park auction as part of the Show and thank the Speckle Park Breeders for their dedication and participation to help generate such a high quality feature breed show and auction,” said Mark O’Sullivan, CEO, RASV.

“Not only do these auctions lead to great outcomes for cattle breeders, but it also gives Show visitors the opportunity to see a live auction, providing an exciting insight into the world of agriculture and farming.”

The Royal Melbourne Show Beef Cattle Competition continues until tomorrow culminating in the presentation of the prestigious RASV interbreed.
