Temperament not assessed in Paddock
Typical North/Western station bred cattle that flowed well through the yards with minimal pressure needed, heifers have had experience up a race, including weaning and drafting the previous day. If they rush through the yards they can be blocked up very quickly. 10% did become agitated within the crush but once back with the mob they calm almost instantly.

Assessor Comments 102 Angus X Heifers are all vendor-bred from medium and large framed Brahman/Charbray X Cows by Texas, Ardrossan and Murdeduke Angus Bulls. Presenting in store to forward store condition, these heifers are all frame and are ready to perform shown the right feed. Please note that this vendor mustered all cattle on Sunday 4th Feb and had them in the yards drafting (via pound and race) on Monday and Tuesday, plus the assessment done Wednesday 7th Feb. This also includes an 8km walk and 14mm of rain. They have been fed lightly with local Mitchell Grass hay, with having access to water. The cattle have been boxed and returned to their paddock. As the vendor offers 6 lots in this sale, there is a STRICT DELIVERY DATE OF WEDNESDAY 14th February. They will be mustered and drafted the day prior to delivery – as the cattle have to run back together the final delivery may result in a very odd beast swap lots. If you have any questions please contact the assessor.
