What the agent said:

Capel auctioneer and agent Chris Waddingham said it was a solid result that represented good value for sellers and buyers.

“The majority of females sold for between $ 2,800 and $ 3,200 and we thought this was a solid result without being spectacular and perhaps reflecting the yields of slaughter-grade calves in today’s processing market. in WA, ”Mr. Waddingham said.

“The number of calves that are first crossbreed has gone down over the years and there has been some price pressure this year and I think buyers have reflected that with their purchases. “
