Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

GOOD RE­SULT: Ron Hampson “Hil­lvue” Monto sold qual­ity Santa and An­gus bul­locks to av­er­age 778kgs at 153c/kg or $1195 at Monto’s fort­nightly Fat and Store sale. RON and Mar­garet Hampson fetched the best prices they have ever seen at the Monto Cat­tle and Coun­try’s Fat and Store sale.

“I feel quite good about it that’s for sure but I think they’ll get bet­ter still,” Mr Hampson said.

The Monto cou­ple who sold Santa Bul­locks for $2.38/kg put their suc­cess down to a good sea­son.

“A lot of places are still in big drought un­for­tu­nately, but we’ve had more grass and more wa­ter,” Mr Hampson said.

He said the Monto sale was a huge suc­cess for him and his wife but prices were up across the board.

“Qual­ity is as good as it’s been and it looks like a good year ahead,” Mr Hampson said.
