Auction at Fischer’s Corner

There is a livestock auction on the last Saturday of every month at Fischers Corner. We were hoping to get and idea of prices for calves. After the auction I think we know that we are looking for calves older than three months – around the 100 kg mark.

We met Gerrie at the auction – He is the guy whose farm Nguni Matroos  took us to when he was not there last week. Gerrie gave me his number – I will call him when I am Tsitikama next.

edit 15 May 2014 – Gerrie Rademeyer grows bottle fed calves – he weans them at about 3 months and sells them at between R1000.00 and R1500.00 each. Bottle raised calves are much more likely to contract diseases that calves raised by their mother. But this is where we had to start.
