Dry weather im­pacts sale

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL -

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.
