Kenmere Charolais Steer sales at Wodonga- Autumn Silver Calves

The predictability and performance of Kenmere genetics was highlighted at the multi breed sale at Barnawatha on Friday 11th January,2019. Kenmere sold a pen of 18 Charolais commercial steers at eight to nine months of age weighing 392 kgs for $1,140 per head. These steers were weaned straight off their mothers that morning. This price was second to the top price of $1,150 per head at that sale.

The Victorian Branch of the Charolais Society awarded Kenmere the best presented pen of Charolais cattle sold on the day to further commend the quality of the sale draft and the result.

Further sales on that day included a pen of 18 steers Kenmere – blood that weighed 337kgs sold for $1020 per head offered by the Horton family, a Kenmere client.

Kenmere returned to the Barnawartha saleyards on the following Tuesday 15th January,2019 offering one pen of 9 Charolais steers at eight to nine months of age that weighed 365 kgs for $1,092 per head returning $2.99 per kg that was the second highest price on the day at that sale.

Our overall draft of 44 head averaged $1,092 weaned straight off their mothers. These calves are reared in true commercial conditions and in many cases Charolais cross dams with multi generation sire lines.
