No if the animal is well fleshed and of good temperament no discounts happen. There has been a bit of a swing away from the Angus at some sale yards. Good quality cattle of any breed tend to sell ok. Nellore type Brahmans were quite common once but they proved to be a bit too light boned and temperament was a problem.
Have 3 main breeds. Brahmans, South Devon and Hereford. Only have a few South Brahvon. Have 1,000 acres of good country. We are up in the mountains (1,000 metres) Don't grow any crops. not cropping country. Have a look at my posting on Coffee Shop (near my place) will give you two views of the country.
