Wayne and Jayne Cooper of Valla were se­lected as the ven­dor of the week at the Grafton prime cat­tle sale. The ven­dor sold a line of 28 bran­gus veal­ers off their prop­erty ad­join­ing Deep Creek, due west of Valla Beach. The Coop­ers have been im­prov­ing their herd by se­lect­ing qual­ity stud bulls, re­tain­ing only their best heifers for breed­ing and by fer­til­iz­ing their im­proved pas­tures to in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity. Their fo­cus on con­tin­ual im­prove­ment saw the ven­dors eas­ily top this week's mar­ket with the sale of 13 bran­gus steers for 310.2c/kg, gross­ing $849.47/head.
