108 VGQ Droughtmaster cows & calves. The majority have very good bone, length, depth & frame for their breed & age. The majority are 5 to 10 year old breeders. Quality cows with calves that are fresh to 9 months old with approx 25% that are branded. They were branded in mid September 2018 & are big enough to wean. Calves look to have weight range of 35 to 280 kg to average 135 / 140 kg. 5% of the cows have white under belly or face, 3% cream coloured & 3% brindle cows. Cows with major faults (dogbite, long toes, capped hips) will be $100 less than sale price. 1 cow & 1 calf observed with a large navel that is not detriment to their health so will be at full sale price. All cows received 3 year Botulism as weaners & are running with VGQ Droughtmaster bulls @ 4%. I would expect a large % of these cows to be back in calf as they held their condition well last year.

The majority should be an even spread from 2014 drop to 2009 (5 to 10 year old) drop with approx. 16% 2015 & 2016 drop. Of those assessed, there looked to be approximately 4% that were 2008 drop.

**65% of the mob were paddock group assessed so final numbers may vary** 

Expect to load comfortable 6 decks.
