Turiroa Breaker 663
Ace of Turiroa
There have been many highs during the past 78 years of breeding Angus Cattle. Earlier success included exporting cattle to Scotland, China and Australia. In 1972 Karl of Turiroa was the first Angus bull in New Zealand sold at auction to be exported to Scotland.
More recent highlights include setting what was believed to be an Australasian record for the highest on farm sale average of $9388 in 2002 when Ace of Turiroa was sold for $60,000 to a syndicate made up of Te Mania, Te Whanga, Inveray and Australasian rights to the Basin Angus in Camdenview, with several other stud bulls being sold that day.
A highlight in 2008 was a son of Turiroa Burke 22 selling for one of the top prices at Australian sales.
In 2012 the stud had another memorable sale with Turiroa Breaker selling for $72,000 to Oregon Angus in the Wairarapa. Although the stud averaged a whopping $10,927 at the 2012 auction a pleasing aspect was there were still plenty of bulls in the very affordable $5000 - $8000 price range.
