Rain cancels Tow­ers’ sale

Townsville Bulletin - - Investor -

HEAVY rains and North Queens­land’s cy­clonedam­aged road net­work have again com­bined to thwart gra­zier’s plans to turn off cat­tle, with to­mor­row’s weekly auc­tion at Char­ters Tow­ers can­celled due to in­suf­fi­cient num­bers. The can­cel­la­tion comes in the wake of the pres­ence of a strong gallery of buy­ers at Dal­rym­ple Sa­le­yards last week when the 308-head of­fer­ing fea­tured just 160 cat­tle des­tined for the meat­works. De­spite fore­casts of rain, agents and gra­ziers will be hop­ing for bet­ter luck next week when, along with the reg­u­lar Wed­nes­day auc­tion, a spe­cial Fri­day sale is planned, for which cattlemen al­ready have reg­is­tered good num­bers.
