The Dobson family operate the Wararba Park Poll Hereford Stud and purchased Sandalwood from prominent Poll Hereford breeder, Roley Fahl, in 1994.
They have recently been selling through the multi-vendor Roma Poll Hereford Sale but after years of building up their numbers were finally able to stage a single vendor auction on Monday.
The Dobson family were delighted with the sale result, selling 49 bulls to a top of $16,000 and an average of $4245 at 96pc clearance.
They also sold 10 of 14 heifers sold for an average of $1375.
Steve Crowley traveled from the Tycolah Poll Hereford Stud at Baraba, NSW, with his son Ben, to purchase the top price bull, Wararba Park First Class, for $16,000.
At 22-months-of-age, First Class weighed in at 986kg and boasted an EMA of 125sq.cm and a scrotal measurement of 41cm.
Mr Crowley, who sold the top price bull at the Dubbo Poll Hereford National Sale in June for $80,000, said First Class was a standout bull.
"The Dobson family purchased a bull from us last year so we dropped in to see them on our way to Beef 2012 this year just to have a look at their stud operation," Mr Crowley said.
"That's when the bull caught our eye - we liked him then and he looks terrific again today."
"His bloodlines go right back to Seven Bardot Indiana who we used in our stud herd 25 years ago."
Other sales of note included Wararba Park Grazier who was purchased by the Charlotte Plains Pastoral Company at Cunnamulla for $7000.
At just 19-months, Grazier impressed the bidders with a weight of 839kg, an EMA of 123sq.cm and a scrotal measurement of 38cm.
Also chasing quality was the Glengraco Grazing Co at Yuleba who purchased two bulls for an average of $4500 while the Dearden family purchased two bulls for $5000 and $4000 for their Bungunya based operation.
The volume buyer of the sale was the Henning family, Karingal, Glenmorgan, who purchased 7 bulls averaging $3500.
The Boyle family also put together good run of bulls for their Yuleba operation, Naturi, buying five averaging $3500 while the Boxvale Cattle Company at Taroom purchased three bulls for an average of $4666.
