Shepparton News - Country News - - FRONT PAGE -

A large Pinz­gauer An­gus cross steer greeted buyers at Shep­par­ton Re­gional Sa­le­yards last Tuesday, and while it did not sell for an in­cred­i­bly high price, its weight and height stole the show.

The four-year-old, owned by Stanhope’s Ian But­ler, weighed in at 990 kg and sold for $1782 ($1.80/kg). It was pur­chased by As­cot Meats in Wodonga.

Mulc­ahy Nel­son agent James Pyke said he was amazed at the size of the steer.

‘‘At shoul­der height, it was 6 foot (1.83 m). It’s one of the tallest I’ve seen,’’ Mr Pyke said.

Big­boy... The 990 kg Pinz­gauer An­gus cross steer had a pen to him­self at Shep­par­ton Re­gional Sa­le­yards last Tuesday.
