Hon­our­ing a cat­tle­man

The Southland Times - - News -

Robert Bruce Mur­ray (Bruce) who farmed near Kaka Point died this month. He was well known in the south Otago area for his prizewin­ning cat­tle stock, gain­ing many times the top price for his Charo­lais steers and heifers at the an­nual Owaka Calf Sale held in March. ‘‘Feed them well and un­der­stock,’’ was his pol­icy. ‘‘. . . 90 per cent of it is down to the feed down the throats.’’ To hon­our his achieve­ments at this sale the fam­ily brought his body down to the Owaka sa­le­yards for peo­ple to pay their re­spects on Septem­ber 13. He is sur­vived by his daugh­ters, Bron­wyn Bichan and Debs Mor­ton.
