Despite being penned toward the rear of the catalogue, lot 26 Willandra Panama P164 proved a head turner when it was knocked down for the sale's $11,500 second top price.
Panama was purchased by the Barana Simmentals, Gunnedah, New South Wales, through Landmark WA livestock manager Leon Giglia.
The polled 792kg son of Topweight Jack Arta and a Maj Robo daughter recorded EBVs in the breed's top 1-5pc for 600-day weight, NT, top 5pc 200-day weight and CW and top 5-10pc for 400-day weight, RBY and EM index.
