Timely rain for spring cattle sale this Friday
RECENT rain with more forecast this week points to a positive result at this Friday’s Myrtleford Annual Spring Cattle Sale.
An estimated 1200 head have been listed for the sale and Paull and Scollard stock agent Dan Ivone said prices should remain firm.
“I expect prices will be similar to other years although it has been a bit more trying than other seasons,” Mr Ivone said.
“Prices at Yea last Friday were solid which should be good for us and with rain predicted this week it should further help our cause.”
Mr Ivone said the quality of local cattle remained high despite drying conditions.
“Quality is still okay, we’re going alright up here and the cattle will have good weight,” he said.
Mr Ivone expected local buyers to dominate this Friday’s sale although rain in NSW and Queensland could bring some northern buyers down to capitalise on the expected boost to pastures.
The sale commences at 10.30am Friday.
