Approximately 500 good to very good quality Droughtmaster EU steers. There are a mixture of number 8’s and #9 steers but the vendor does not have the break-up of the different ages. There looks to be about 40 % #8’s. They are calendar year branded so the number 9 steers would be milk tooth and the #8’s milk and two tooth. These steers would have a very good compensatory weight gain. They are quiet and well handled.
I assessed 252 of their heifers 2 months ago for A+. The heavier lot average 377 kgs and were 65% #8’s and the balance #9’s. 70% of the #8 heifers were 2 tooth with the balance were milk tooth. All #9’s were milk tooth.
The steers are getting light in condition but are still healthy in the coat and I would think that there would be a very good compensatory weigh gain with these steers. They would travel well.
The number 8 steers look to have a weight range of 320 to 420 kgs to average around 365 / 370 kgs while the #9 steers look to be 240 to 330 to average around 275 / 280 kg. They have not been weighed.
They are mostly tidy around the head with a small % with small horn or scur. Good bone steers with good frame and length. There is a small % of Brahman, Angus and Charolais cross as you can see in the photos.

If there are 200 #8’s you would get 6 decks at 30 a deck with a 10% rejection. If there are 300 #9’s, you would get 7 decks at 38 with a 11% rejection if required. With a 5% rejection you would get 14 decks.
