Congratulations to Brendan Ah Sam and family on topping the 80th Annual Mountain Calf Sale at Omeo on Wednesday with their opening pen of ‘Strawberry Roan’ (Shorthorn/Hereford) heifers selling for an incredible $1810! Their steer portion topped the Autumn drop weaners at $1630 and their pure bred Hereford portion sold to $1610. 

Bert Ah Sam, Brendan’s father, said he had never witnessed heifer prices like it during his lifetime. “I haven’t seen a lot of store sales for a while but it is certainly up there,” he said. “A lot of people are getting back into breeders and they are hard to find at the moment.”
