JBS Australia are now sourcing suitable Shorthorn feeder heifers for supply into the Thousand Guineas brand and delivered to Prime City Feedlot, Tabbita, NSW.
Heifers are required to be Pregnancy tested empty by a qualified technician no more than 14 days prior to delivery and the pregnancy testing certificate must be supplied with the vendors NVD form upon delivery to Prime City.

Given the prevailing dry conditions across much of Eastern Australia, supplying heifers into the Thousand Guineas market provides Shorthorn producers with another high value market for those secondary and feeder heifers that may be surplus to requirements for joining as replacements this winter.

With the current pricing for Shorthorn feeder steers, supplied to JBSAustralia feedlots, still showing a 10 c/kg premium over equivalent Angus feeder steers, the Thousand Guineas brand continues to provide a premium outlet for Shorthorn producers as well as the opportunity to participate in developing the Shorthorn breeds reputation amongst high end dining establishments both in Australia and Internationally.

If you have suitable Shorthorn feeder cattle to market this autumn, make sure that you contact your local JBS Australia Livestock buyer.
