Year on from top Turiroa Angus sale

The Powdrell family at Turiroa Angus near Wairoa bred the top priced rising two-year-old bull in the country last sales season.

Turiroa Ragnar as he’s now known, was purchased jointly by the Kaharau and Orere Angus studs in Gisborne for $104,000.

Nearly a year on from the sale day this is what he looks like in the paddock now.

The new owners ran a competition to pick a name for him, and ‘Ragnar’ was the winner, named after Ragnar Lothbrok, the main character from the very popular Netflix series, Vikings.

He was pictured at Kaharau Angus in Goodwin Road in April.

Will there be another NZ top priced animal sold here this sales season? June 28-30 will tell the story.
