STORE CATTLE SALE
MARKET HIGHLIGHT - Friday 5th August 2016 (1000 head)
The store cattle market continues to remain very firm with one agent describing today’s sale as the perfect situation where those buying were equally as happy as those selling. The highlight of the sale was an outstanding run of cows and calves offered by Landmark with the top Charolais cows and calves (pictured top left) sold on account DT & ME Richards, “Glenmore” Kelvin making $2500. The continuing rain was also the subject of much discussion with several lots of coastal and tablelands cattle withdrawn because of wet weather, making for an outstanding run of heifers already pencilled in for our next sale on Friday 19th August.
