Vendor of the Week


FYI.  This is the final vendor of the week for 2019.  The next sale will be January 7th.


Maybrook Pastoral of Pillar Valley was selected as the ‘vendor of the week’ at the final prime cattle sale in Grafton for 2019.  Maybrook, along with all the other vendors recognized over previous months, are to be commended for presenting such high quality cattle in the face of harsh drought conditions.  The best of Maybrook’s offering were 2 heavily-muscled Limousin steers which averaged 460kg while still having milk teeth.  These well-bred and well grown steers sold for 266.2c/kg to gross Maybrook $1,224.52/head.
