Northcliffe graziers MG Armstrong will offer 45 Murray Grey steers and 13 Angus steers at the sale.

The ownerbred steers are aged around 14 months and bred on Monterey Murray Grey and Mordallup Angus genetics.

The Armstrong's steers were weaned in January and were treated with 7in1 and Multimin at this time.

Nutrien Livestock, Manjimup representative Brett Chatley said the Murray Grey steers were expected to weigh from 360 to 430 kilograms and from 370 to 450kg for the Angus steers.

He said the Armstrong steers would be ideal for backgrounders or the feedlot.

"They are an excellent line of steers," Mr Chatley said.

Among the bigger individual vendor drafts in the heifer run will be 50 Angus heifers from the paddocks of Stoney Pastoral Company.

The draft of heifers are aged 10 to 11 months and based on Lawsons Angus bloodlines.

Nutrien Livestock, Capel agent Chris Waddingham said the line of heifers was surplus to the operation's breeding program requirements.

Mr Waddingham estimates the heifers to weigh from 280 to 320kg making them ideal backgrounding and feeder types.
