Warrawee Park Dispersal

The Warrawee Park dispersal sale held April 6, 2011 averaged $2465 for 48 head.

The top priced animal of the sale was the 2011 IDW Best Udder winner, Warrawee Park Gracie 2, selling for $6800.  She was purchased by a Hayes and Mueller syndicate.

The second top price went to her close-to-calving daughter, Warrawee Park Gracie 5, again purchased by a syndicate, B Warburton, Tocumwal and J & D Phillips, Toowoomba Qld at $6600.

Progeny of Warrawee Park Gracie 2 were the highlight of the sale. Her unmated daughter Warrawee Park Gracie 6 sold for $3500 and her last calf, a bull, sold for $1500.

The Gladys family also impressed with Warrawee Park Gladys 5 selling to Tony and Elle Hayes for $3800, and Warrawee Park Gladys 8 purchased by the Tuhan family for $3600.

At the IDW sale the Tuhans purchased a twin sister to Gladys 8.  Doug Tuhan reports that within 10 minutes of arriving at their farm the twins had found each other, and appeared they had a few stories to tell each other.  Judy Hicks (Warrawee Park) says that prior to IDW they were always together, and in fact both calved the same day.
