Vendor of the Week

 

‘Maybrook’ was selected as the ‘vendor of the week’ at this week’s prime cattle sale in Grafton.  The Pillar Valley vendor sold a customary line of 7 high-quality Limousin calves. The pair of well-muscled steer calves pictured was the top of the sale in their weight range, selling for 518.2c/kg. These impressive calves averaged 300kg ‘straight from the cow’ to gross the vendor $1,554.60/head.  The offering was sold by Farrell McCrohon Stock and Station Agents.
