Prices on a high at Shepparton
Webb have been taking advantage of the attractive cattle prices to clean out aged cows and excess heifers. Last week a load of 28 aged Black Simmental commercial cows sold to an average of $1181 or $1.94/kg. At the same sale 8 outstanding Black Simmental trade heifers sold to an average of $947 or $2.15/kg. These exceptional results show the value of the weight and yield gained by using Simmental bulls.
