Weaner calves 2021 Calves born in 2020 had a great start with August being unseasonably mild; they were weaned on the back of another tough summer, the calves weaning weights were still very good with the cows taking up the slack.
Notable Commercial Sales
Patrick Cattle Company sold black MMM cross calves at the Masterton Weaner Fair in March 2021 and the received the second highest price for black steers on the day.
Akitio Station Nigel Bicknell sold his MMM sired yearling steers and Heifers at the Feilding Sale in August 2020 and received premiums of 25-30c/kg over other yearlings at the same weight – a great result.
Going Forward

We would state:
Ÿ Number of MMM cattle for sale
Ÿ Date of proposed sale

We believe and certainly hope vendors will receive premiums for cattle sired by MMM bulls
