North Queensland cattlemen Mark and Pam Prichard bought 10 straws of semen from a bull for $2,400 each at the ‘Big Country Sale’ in Charters Towers. Straws are used to store bull semen, which is a kind of small plastic bottle, in which a small amount of semen is kept between liquid nitrogen.
In the year 2017, this seven-year-old bull record was sold for $ 325,000. Since then both the animal parents had made up their mind to buy the semen of this bull.
