HEAVYWEIGHT TOPPERS: Denis (pictured)  and Heather Ludwig, Stewarts Range topped the market with 10 18-20 month old Banquet blood Angus steers at $740. Denis is pictured with his agent Pinkerton Palm Hamlyn & Steen’s Barry Bates. He said they would normally grow the 366kg steers out to heavier weights but were running short of feed. They also sold another 12 lighter steers weighing 336kg for $605.
