Sale is moment of truth

CUNNINGHAM cattleman Malcolm Turner has long been a fan of Angus cattle and in tomorrow's Bush Tele he talks about his preference for the breed that "hangs up nicely".

He believes how cattle perform in the butcher's shop is equally as important as their weight-for-age results on either grass or grain.

The local stockman has operated both a stud and commercial beef operation on his Condamine River property, west of Warwick, for more than 20 years.

For him the challenge is producing well-muscled cattle that are adaptable and do well in a range of environments.

This year he will again test the results of his breeding program by selling his Namgooyah stud bulls through the annual Sunstate Angus Bull Sale in Warwick on July 27.

Mr Turner has supported the sale since it's inception with successful results.
