BREEDERS and future breeders sold up to their values while steers were a fraction easier at the Dubbo store cattle sale last Friday which yarded the biggest number of 4150 head so far this year attracting possibly the largest crowd of buyers and spectators as well.

Included was a dispersal of some 2000 Santa Gertrudis (900 weaner bull calves and 1175 Queensland bred females) from Carwell Station of John Rae’s Pentdale Nominees, Quambone.

Five to nine month-old bull calves making up Pentdale’s male portion of Angus/Santa Gertrudis crosses sold up to $1005 while principally three to five year-old Santa cows sold from $1050 to $1825 for red taggers and $1220 to $1375 for blue taggers. Unjoined made up to $1250 a head.
