In the last few months Burenda sired Angus and Brangus progeny have excelled at a number of feature sales. Tracy and Link Davies Munduberra took out the best pen of Brangus infused feeder steers and then the Champion Pen of Feeder Steers at the Burnett Livestock and Realty Feeder Steer Competition at Biggenden in February 2017. A high price of $3.42 was achieved on the day. Close behind were Tim and Megan Allen 'Argyll' Munduberra with a pen of 12 Angus cross steers to average 401.4kg that sold for a healthy $3.38/kg.
Ben Cush 'Palyah' Kumbia produced some weaner steers off light country at Kumbia which sold for $4.33/kg to realise $933.67/head at the Dalby Sale 26th April. These steers were by Burenda Go Between G23 sons over a Santa base breeder and certainly produced some good results. The heifer portion are magnificent and have been retained for breeders and will be joined to Burenda Black bulls in the spring.
Gary Walsh from 'Winwood' Eidsvold with his Brangus heifers secured a 2nd place in the Pen of three Milk Tooth Heifers under 350kg and a 3rd place in the Champion Single Milk Tooth Heifer at the Eidsvold Show on the 6th May. He then went on to win with a pen of 18 Brangus steers at the Eidsvold Show Steer Sale on the 10th May to take home the Champion Pen of steers of the sale. They sold for $3.86/kg to gross $1110/head. Congratulations to Gary with a well earnt CIA Jackaroo cattle crush as the prize. Gary has been buying Burenda Angus and Brangus bulls for a number of years.
Congratulations to Kerod and Loretta Jaques 'Lamont" Dalby for a well deserved top of the Dalby Sale price on the 17th May of $4.10/kg. The top priced pen were a superb line of Angus cross Droughtmaster weaner steers. The infusion of Angus genetics into their Bos Indicus breeder herd has dramatically lifted not only their sale prices but the returns on their investments.
