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.
