A great show of strong store cattle attracted seasonal buyers from down country who produced a very strong trade for all types. Buyers were keen and potential vendors are encouraged to take advantage by selling strong store cattle whilst the large numbers are here to attract buyers travelling some distance. No shortage of cattle at 4 figure prices. Another feature of the sale were some good runs of Angus cattle which sold well.
