Steers were very good to handle through the yards. Very odd steer became a little stirred when in the crush but settled once it rejoined the mob. No steer became aggressive at all. Well handled young cattle. All bulls are all heavily selected on their temperament. Pride is taken in the handling, imprinting and weaning preparation of these cattle, based on low stress stock handling principles and care with genetic selection.

Assessor Comments
A great line of quality young Shorthorn steers that have been born into a good season and show some of the softness that Moombidary Shorthorns are known for. Steers handled very well throughout the assessment. This is a draft of the Moombidary steers for this offering and present very well and are a great opportunity to purchase top quality Shorthorn steers. These steers have decades of breeding behind them and will not disappoint on grass or grain. Ideal steers to take on and grow out for other markets. Steers have been in and around yards for the past 6 weeks due to extended mustering. I expect the steers to go ahead quickly with good compensatory weight gain. Same vendor has 2 other lots of Shorthorn steers in the same sale totaling over 425 head of the one brand. At assessment steers had a weight range of 260kg-344Kg. Please note there is some steers that show pizzle and approx 6 had non detrimental scarring of the eye and were treated at assessment refer photos and video.
