First-time seller at the NVLX January cattle sale, Jim Ross, “Noonbah”, Holbrook, was chuffed at the prices his steers made – $1520 per head – and proud to have been awarded the Verbac Best Pen of the Day award.
“I normally sell from the paddock but this time, I thought it would be interesting to sell through the NVLX sales. These 11 month old steers finished really well as we did have a great wet winter and they weighed in at an average of 439 kg”, Mfr Ross said.
“We’ve been breeding Angus for three generations with my son, Sandy, now more involved in the operations. We use Rennylea and Dunoon genetics for our cow herd and, as you can see, these steers are tops”.
