Angus and Angus cross cattle’s domination of the market place continues as they hit record prices for weaners that are more than double of that achieved in 2014.
This domination is wide spread from Roma QLD, where Angus cross steers hit 418c/kg down to Ballarat VIC with Angus weaner steers making 337c/kg
Steady, but heated competition from restockers, feedlotters, meat buyers and commission buyers from across the eastern states has stimulated this upward trend for Angus and Angus cross cattle in the market place.
