It is always interesting to note the competition between the Ensay and Omeo, as both Wednesday sales are of Hereford steers and heifers.
For some buyers, the Elders Ensay Hereford sale is one of the most preferred of the Mountain Calf series, as some of the repeat buyers only attend this sale, then go home.
The home of the Hereford certainly presented itself very well during the Elders annual Mountain Cattle calf sales at Benambra, Tuesday, Ensay then Omeo, Wednesday, March 14 and 15.
Producers from Victoria’s high country regions around Omeo, Benambra and Ensay have again wowed onlookers with the quality of calves on offer.
As the temperature climbed into the high 20s on Tuesday afternoon, the very large contingent of buyers moved onto Benambra for Elders’ Hereford sale.
Selling more than 10,000 cattle in a series of sales over two days in Victoria’s high country creates unique logistic challenges.
Buyers looking for Black Baldy heifers will have a limited selection from Alison and Geoff Burston, at Omeo on Tuesday, who are transitioning into an all black herd.
