Congratulations to all involved. Once again the Hereford calves topped the prices with a significant premium paid for both Bull and Heifer calves. Hardiness and greater weight at slaughter are an added advantage with Hereford while the heifer if used as a suckler dam is possibly the choice of many due to her docility, her ease of calving, her fertility and longevity.
