Vendors have 310 Cows in the paddock and I saw about 133 cows and 56 calves on a waterhole on the outside of the  McKinlay River. The other cows and calves would have been scattered along the river and were too difficult to inspect but I can only assume were very similar. Vendors would like to sell all the wet cows and all of the PTIC cows.

The cows I saw varied in age from 4 to 13 years with the following break up, 20% were 11, 12 and 13 year old, 52% were 9 and 10 year old and 28% were 4-8 year old. Brahman Bulls were removed in October 2020 so PTIC cows should be more than 4 months in calf. As I never saw all cows, vendors are willing to give a deduction of $250 for any cow that is over 13 years (ie # 7 or older) or faulty. The cows look to range in weight from 320  to 500 kg and average around 400kg.

The calves varied in age from fresh born up to 5-6 months and there seemed to be more calves that were older than 3 months then under 3 months, however cows with younger calves might have been away in the river. One calf had dog bitten ears. Vendors will also deduct $100 from and calf that is faulty. All calves were unbranded however you may have seen branded weaners in the background of some photos that have got in from another paddock.

Vendor expects to get 6-7 decks of cows and calves and 3-4 decks of PTIC cows however final numbers will not be known until they are mustered and pregtested.

For sale on Farm 55 Km North of McKinlay and 47 Km South of Julia Creek in tick free country.
