Alan Gillogoly from Moree purchased 130 steers from Milwillah last year. They were put into his feedlot at an average of 540kg at 16 months of age. Av weight gain was 1.7kg/day. Av weight dressed 413kg. Av fat 22mm.
“The performance of the Milwillah cattle was outstanding, particularly for weight gain and marbling. The heaviest of the bullocks dressed out at 491kg and was one of a number of animals that had a marbling score of 6. Fat cover was consistently high. With this sought of kill data, it’s no wonder the cattle are in demand,” says Alan Gillogoly.
