NANANGO DAIRY SALE THURSDAY’S multi-vendor dairy heifer sale at the Nanango Showgrounds saw firm prices paid for almost 100 head from seven vendors with mostly friesian and friesian X young dairy females with AIS, some guernsey and brown swiss X.
This sale by Cochrane Livestock Rural Services saw a top price of $2600 for a fresh heifer from the Wilson family of North Burnett who sold 24 head to an average of $1698. The Greiner family sold 36 fresh and springing friesians to a top of $2500 and an average of $1911.
The Gulbransen family of Mount Mee sold to a top of $1950 with an average of $1842.
There was strong demand from 16 registered bidders from Silverleigh, Howard, Mooloo, Maclagan, Gowrie Little Plains, Quinalow, Gympie, Harrisville, Kupli and Yarranlea throughout the sale for the wet and heavy springing heifers. Auctioneer John Cochrane was very pleased with the quality and condition of the cattle which came from Mount Mee, Chinchilla, the Darling Downs and the Burnett.
The rainfall this past week certainly had the effect of lifting prices and demand and with more rain forecast, confidence has lifted. Mr Cochrane and his team achieved a 100 per cent clearance at a sale average above expectation.
The next sale is jersey fresh milkers at Kingaroy on April 17.
Terry Haupt sold EU charbray X steers at the Eidsvold sale.
