Sprys 57 Years of Breeding Sale Report An Angus bull topped Sprys 2021, 57 Years of Breeding Sale at $50,000 and Shorthorn Bulls topping at $24,000 twice with a Shorthorn Donor cow topping at $20,000. The top priced Angus bull, Sprys-W Overdrive Q573, a 21 month old son of GAR Drive, was purchased by Bull Oak Well Angus, Pinaroo, South Australia. Stud Principal Heath Nickolls said their new Sire came highly recommended by Gerald Spry and they were not disappointed after they had made the 700 km round trip to see him. “He is a complete outcross for us”, Mr Nicolls said. “ He has eye appeal, great productive capacity and being out of the Wattletop Barunah E295 cow gives us access to genetics which we know have been performing well.” Gerald Spry told the crowd he thought Sprys-W Overdrive Q573, weighing 962kg and with a scrotal of 44cm, was the best bull he had ever bred. Top price in the Shorthorn bull offering was $24,000 twice – Sprys Boom Time Q120 bought by Adrian Goode, Kingston SA, weighed 758kg with a scrotal of 38cm and was included in a draft of 4 bulls averaging $17,000 and Outback Sprys Buddy Q283 purchased by the Brook Family, Eloora Shorthorns, Bulart Vic.
