Records once again tumbled at the Tamworth store cattle sale last Friday as cows with calves stole the show.
Despite making up a smaller portion of the overall yarding of just under 3000 head, prices continued to rise in the category with new records for a single cow with calf and line of cows with calves set.
The Tamworth record for a single cow with calve was cracked when a Shorthorn cow with a calve was knocked down for $5000.
The record for a pen of cows with calves was broken for the third time this year and for the second time this month, when a line of two- to-seven-year-old Angus cows with calves from PRB Livestock Coolah was sold for $4420 a unit.
Tamworth stock agent Scott Newberry, Davidson Cameron and Company, said the cow with calves market was one of the strongest performing categories at last Friday's sale.
"There was a really good run of females on offer and there was an individual sale of one Shorthorn cow and calf offered by the Calrossy Anglican School, Tamworth, which sold for $5000," Mr Newberry said.
