Off the Rails - Store Cattle market highlight
2018 in review
The TLSAA produce a weekly market highlight, updated after each sale.
Friday 19th Jan 2018 - TRLX turns sea of blue to raise funds and awareness for Dolly's Dream
It was blue all around as our first store sale for 2018 became a “pop up” fundraiser for Dolly’s Dream Foundation, set up by family and friends of Dolly Everitt, in remembrance to Dolly who was the victim of bullying and took her own life recently at the age of 14. It was a fantastic day that started out on Monday with Issy Burke and Grace Purtle (pictured with Louisa Burke and Sally and Molly Purtle) asking if everyone could wear blue today – and it grew from there. The girls worked tirelessly throughout the week and raised around $2500 from the sale of blue ribbons, stickers an auction of an Akubra and a raffle with all funds going directly to the Foundation.

On the cattle front, there were big numbers from the Upper Hunter as conditions toughen there, but tablelands buyers were active as they make the most of a relatively good season.
