The Countryman Invitational Bull Sale will offer 54 bulls at the WA College of Agriculture, Narrogin, on March 4.

The 21st sale will catalogue six breeds including Poll Hereford, Lincoln Red, Murray Grey, Red Poll, Shorthorn and Angus from eight breeders.

New this year will be the host college's offering of seven Collegian Angus bulls.

College president Andrew Castle said the students have been privileged to work with the Collegian stud, which has had a huge impact with its educational outcomes.

College technical officer Ray Batt said he was very pleased with the stud's progress, and the sale team included the reserve junior champion bull from the 2013 Perth Royal Show.

"All of the Collegian bulls were sired by Blackrock E95, which goes back to proven US sire KCF Bennett Performer," Mr Batt said.

David and Kate Turner, of Tone Park Lincoln Red stud, will offer seven bulls for sale this year.

In the Poll Hereford catalogue, John and Heidi Cowcher, of Quaindering stud, will offer four bulls and Terry and Sandy Woods are back with 12 bulls.

A big line-up of 16 Murray Grey bulls will be on offer from Lindsay Bagshaw's Young Guns stud.

Murray Williams and Quentin Hooper, of Yongerellen and Red Sands Red Poll studs respectively, will offer two and one Red Poll bulls.

Catholic Agricultural College, Bindoon, will present seven Statue Hill Shorthorn bulls for sale.

The sale will be conducted by Elders, Primaries and Landmark.

One lucky bull buyer will win an RPM Headbale donated by Produce Link.
