2020 BIGGENDEN SHOW SALE
At the Feb Steer Show & Sale,
Vale View steers won the best
pen of Droughtmaster infused.
" What our buyers are saying"
We have purchased 2 bulls from Vale View & 4 registered females since 2014, their fertility is very good, all animals are very sound with good temperaments. One bull in particular; Vale View Xavier who we purchased as a weaner has gone onto produce exactly what we wanted him to do, he throws such a consistent type over any coloured or type of female, we have never seen anything like it before.
As beef producers who have enjoyed great success in carcass competitions & the commercial show ring for 7 years where we have won numerous prizes on both hoof and hook, we know how hard it is to find a bull that throws this consistency. We turn off approx. 120 steers and 50 females direct to meatworks & the rest are sold as vealers. These types of bulls are producing us early vealers as well as grown out steers & are easy doing type of animals that handle our hard spotted gum and string bark country conditions quite well."

"We have been buying Vale View genetics for a number of years now, initially from the DN Sale and the CQ Spring Classic Sale but most recently at the annual Performance Plus Sale. We have found the Vale View cattle to adapt and perform well and are always extremely easy to handle both in the yards and out in the paddock. PTIC results this year to Vale View bulls have been over 90%. The temperament of all the cattle that we have bought over the years has been impeccable and the amount of information that is available about each and every one of the Vale View cattle gives you confidence in buying their genetics and is evidence of the depth of breeding in their herd. Dave and Colleen have taken a genuine interest in our operation and have personally delivered bulls that we have bought to our property. It has been a pleasure doing business with Vale View."
