Dry weather impacts sale
THE prolonged dry conditions in the Wide Bay Burnett have impacted on numbers for today’s 2014 Droughtmaster Store and Show Sale at Biggenden saleyards.
Because of these tough conditions, many vendors were forced to sell cattle that were booked for the sale early but today it is all systems go.
Burnett Livestock & Realty’s Stephanie Whitaker said however, adversity brings change and the sale now has some new and many returning vendors,” Ms Whitaker said.
“The sale is always a cracker with droughtmasters a much sought breed in Queensland.
“The sale offers the opportunity for studs and producers to demonstrate the performance of their cattle in a commercial context,” she said.
Ms Whitaker said a solid range of sponsors means the 2014 sale will again offer some great prizes to reward vendors for their efforts.
“Burnett Livestock & Realty are looking forward to the sale, it’s always rewarding to see a good yarding of quality droughtmasters lined up,” she said.
Presentations will be at 8.30am before the sale.
