Just add water to maintain heat in market

It’s been a good week and a great sale today with some quality cattle on offer, numbers up and the market maintaining the heat after some decent follow up rain throughout the week. The best gains today were in the heifers with prices up by as much as 17c/kg for the lighter females in the face of strong demand and increased competition. Numbers are also building for our store sale this Friday 20th October in what’s shaping up to be another big day. Make sure you check out our latest advertising and hope to see you here.
