STEERS TO JBS
During the week we were very happy to consign 101 purebred Shorthorn steers to the Thousand Guineas Shorthorn program at the JBS feedlot, Prime City, Tabbita, NSW.
Our JBS buyer complimented us on the quality of our steers. Also, the livestock transporter told us how quiet that he found the steers to load.
We received exactly the same price per kg for these steers that the Angus steers were receiving.
So don’t think that you are losing out financially by running Shorthorns.
The bulk of these steers were born after August 4, 2021 so they have reached a saleable weight in under 10 months.
