The Lawson’s encourage those interested in attending the day to register by 19th September, as numbers are limited for the afternoon session.
Paringa Livestock will achieve another first next month, holding their spring Charolais bull sale on international online auction website, Sale Day Global. On September 27-28 Sale Day Global will make its Australian debut with Paringa, auctioning 30 top Charolais yearling bulls over two days.
Paringa principal Tom Lawson said online sales are the way of the future. “People are getting more comfortable with the technology, and it’s easier on the bulls,” he said. “All the same data will be available, including photos, video, pedigrees and comments online from the first week of September.” The outstanding line up of performance Charolais bulls are by sires such as Doc Silver, Paringa Max D101E, Paringa Rio Bravo D213E and HCR Success.
