We will be back in 2015. I must say that Midas cattle that we sold have been performing very well in the show ring which is pleasing to see. The commercial side is pleasing as we have repeat buyers for bulls. This year the QLD Gelbvieh sale was put off as we did not have enough numbers. If you are interested in bulls please go to my Sales page as I have some photos of bulls just started on feed -- if interested please contact me.
