During a week when a record price of $160,000 was paid for a Hereford bull at the Injemira sale at Book Book, a record for cows with calves was set today at the Bega store cattle sale.
More than 1000 head were yarded, with the quality described as “very good for the top pens but falling away at the lower weights”.
A feature of the sale was the dispersal of Angus herd on account Cranbrook Pastoral, Cobargo, due to the property being sold.
The top price for those cows with calves was $4050, paid by Braidwood beef producer Michael Bunn.
The cows were with their second or third calves and had not been re-joined.
Another excellent sale from the Cranbrook draft was $4040, paid for 19 PTIC Angus cows to calve July/August.
