Quality Shorthorn commercial females have sold to a top price of $2,660 for a group of 3 year old PTIC Shorthorn cows.
The cows were sold by agents Milling Stuart, account of Todd and Sara Fergusson, Moreton Bay, at the Dunedoo Sale Yards after their herd was devastated by the February bush fires. The decision to sell the remainder of the herd was a difficult one as fences and feed were non existent on their property.
Given the many years of breeding on offered, the quality of females was excellent and prices reflected the Fergusson family's dedication with the top pen of 3 yo PTIC cows selling for $2,660 to Mike Newton, Miller Whan & John, SA, with the overall average for PTIC cows of $2,301. Two year old PTIC heifers also sold to a top of $2,220 to Muriel Capel, Barraba.
