Record prices and all round excitement at the annual Mountain Calf sales

The Victorian High Country is the beating heart of the Hereford breed with generations of families valuing the temperament, growth and doing ability of the cattle.

The annual Mountain Calf Sales are held each March at Hinnomunjie, Benambra, Ensay and Omeo, presenting the region’s lead draft of autumn drop mixed sex weaners. The sales draw buyers and visitors from right around Australia to source quality Hereford cattle and enjoy the spectacle of one of the nation’s longest running commercial sales.

This year’s sales have seen records tumble as vendors and buyers were part of the excitement that saw steers and heifers hotly contested for by restockers and finishers. For a detailed wrap of each of the sales check out the reports and photos in the links below:
