Price up for wean­ers

Euroa Gazette - - AGRICULTURAL NEWS -

EUROA Agents con­ducted an Early An­gus and All Breeds Fea­ture Cat­tle Sale on Wed­nes­day yard­ing around 2800 cat­tle.

With the sea­son de­te­ri­o­rat­ing over the last month, agents took the op­por­tu­nity to run an early An­gus fea­ture sale to help farm­ers take the pres­sure off feed­ing stock at home.

There was a very high qual­ity of au­tumn drop calves on dis­play, with most calves only around 7-8 months of age.

The top pen of wean­ers tipped the scales at 363kg with many oth­ers between 300 -340kg.

This is an an out­stand­ing re­sult con­sid­er­ing the sea­son and these calves be­ing sold five weeks early than nor­mal.

A large crowd at­tended, and agents re­ported a much stronger sale fu­elled by some good or­ders from NSW and lo­cal re­stocker in­quiry.

The pen­ning was the best qual­ity yard­ing for three or four months.

Sev­eral feed­lot buy­ers chased the heavy older steers weigh­ing between 400 – 500kg push­ing the value of these steers up by $100 - $150 on pre­vi­ous sales.

Qual­ity au­tumn drop wean­ers could be quoted as $150 - $200 dearer on pre­vi­ous sales.

A small num­ber of cows and calves were yarded but also en­joyed price rises of up to $200 for the bet­ter end.

Top sell­ing pens could be quoted as fol­lowed.
