$12,000 in prizes on offer
THE Burnett Livestock and Realty February Steer Sale will see more than $12,000 in prizes given away.
The steer sale at the Biggenden Saleyards on Thursday, February 7 will be judged by a reputable and highly experienced cattle buyer.
The Champion Pen will be awarded the Leichts CIA ProChute Immobiliser vet crush, worth more than $9000.
This is the richest store cattle sale in Queensland and an opportunity not to be missed.
All class winners will receive an Engel fridge freezer full of great prizes, including animal health products from Virbac Animal Health, Datamars and tools courtesy of Rabobank, to mention a few.
A minimum of 10 steers to a pen is essential to be eligible for judging. The only way to win the crush is to send the steers in for the sale.
Leichts CIA will have a sales representative at the sale to answer any questions about its cattle handling equipment.
Producers contemplating upgrading their cattleyard equipment can take advantage of the sale and look at the prize crush or talk to Leichts about the full range of equipment.
Leichts will also be happy to take orders at the sale.
The sale receives widespread media coverage and is an excellent opportunity for producers to promote their stud or commercial cattle operation.
“For studs, this sale is a great way to showcase how their bulls produce in a commercial situation,” Burnett Livestock and Realty director Lance Whitaker said.
“It is an excellent promotion opportunity.
“We have santa gertrudis, drought master and brahman breed societies on board this year as sponsors – evidence of the depth and breadth of the publicity of the sale.”
PRIZES GALORE: More than $12,000 in prizes (similar to these from last year) will be up for grabs at the upcoming Biggenden All Breeds Steer Sale.
