STOCK UP ON STEERS AT SALE
THE All Breeds Steer Sale on Thursday February 20 at Biggenden is shaping up to be better than ever with recent rain and demand for steers creating a perfect market to sell.
After the prolonged dry last year, steers are a hot ticket item and buyers are ready to pay.
The All Breeds Steer Sale is an annual sale with prizes for breed classes including Charolais, Santa Gertrudis, Droughtmaster, Brahman, Angus and Simmental infused steers.
All class winners receive an Engel fridge freezer, Wolf Eye torch, merchandise and animal health products.
The vendor of the Champion Pen also wins a Leichts CIA vet crush.
There is a minimum of 10 steers to a pen to be eligible for judging and all class winners must be sold. Not all steers need to be winners though, with bookings open to commercial store steers.
This year, Burnett Livestock & Realty are offering an Engel Platinum Series fridge freezer as a lucky vendor prize. This will go to a randomly selected vendor who has not won any of the breed classes.
The prizes are sponsored by Zoetis, Bendigo Bank – Gin Gin Community Bank, Rural Bank and Leichts CIA.
Burnett Livestock & Realty’s Lance Whitaker is getting excited about the sale and said the conditions were all shaping up to make this a real cracker.
“The market has a spring in its step again and that puts a smile on all our faces, he said.”
Selling space is filling fast and Mr Whitaker said producers should book now to secure their space at the sale.
Call Burnett Livestock & Realty on 4127 1277 to learn more about the sale.
The prize presentations start at 8.15am on Thursday, February 20 at the Burnett Livestock Exchange, Biggenden and selling starts at 9am.
