Great crowd for the early Angus Feature Sale

Monday, 12 November, 2018

Euroa agents conducted an early Angus and All Breeds Feature Cattle Sale on Wednesday, 7 November, yarding around 2800 cattle.

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

Very high qualities of autumn drop calves were 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 was an outstanding result considering the season and the sale taking place five weeks earlier than normal.

Rodwells Stock Agent, Scott Meehan said a large crowd attended, and reported a much stronger sale fueled by some good orders from New South Wales and local restocker inquiry.

“The penning was the best quality yarding for three or four months,” Mr Meehan said.

“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 more than previous sales.

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