Southern Riverina news - - News -

The an­nual Don Dyson Draw for Part­ners Bowls Day was held last Sun­day where 30 play­ers graced the green.

The only three game win­ning com­bi­na­tion was Bernard Curtin, Kura Gold­smith and Shane Foster, who were the re­cip­i­ents of Spor­ties Club shirts.

The run­ners-up were Glenys Mckay, Mary Curtin and John O’dwyer.

The Spor­ties and Don Dyson pro­vided prizes to each player and this was a fit­ting fi­nale for the sea­son.

●●● There was much lo­cal in­ter­est in the Ovens and Mur­ray Foot­ball League match be­tween Al­bury and Yar­ra­wonga at the week­end.

For­mer Ber­ri­gan res­i­dents Mark Bush and Sam Milne rep­re­sented the Tigers, while last year’s Ber­ri­gan pre­mier­ship player Will Gorman played for Yar­ra­wonga.

Once again Al­bury proved too strong win­ning by 23 points.

●●● Woody Mo­tors, to­gether with NRMA, will host the NRMA Can­cer Coun­cil Lun­cheon at the hall sup­per room start­ing at 11.30am this Fri­day.

A three-course meal will be served for $15 per per­son. Come along and sup­port a great cause as well as catch­ing up with friends.

●●● Sew and Grow’s fifth Thurs­day lun­cheon is on again on May 31 at 12 noon at the Pres­by­te­rian Church for lunch. The speaker is Chris Mil­burn. All ladies wel­come.

●●● Lo­cals would be in­ter­ested to know that two ex-ber­ri­gan girls, Sarah Senini and Emily Browne, who play A grade net­ball for the Lav­ing­ton Pan­thers, have helped their team to the top of the Ovens & Mur­ray lad­der.

The Pan­thers have had the best start to the sea­son since Sarah Senini can re­mem­ber and have only lost one game, which was to Yar­ra­wonga.

Sarah and Emily fea­ture reg­u­larly in the team’s best play­ers list and we wish them con­tin­ued suc­cess for the rest of the sea­son.

●●● Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ray and Joan Cot­tam who cel­e­brated their 50th wed­ding an­niver­sary last Sun­day with fam­ily and friends.

Guests trav­elled from Noosa, Con­doblin, Barmed­man, Melbourne and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

●●● The Ladies Aux­il­iary of the Ber­ri­gan War Me­mo­rial Hospi­tal would like to thank all those who do­nated goods for sale and gave gen­er­ously to their street stall last Wed­nes­day.

The win­ner of the fire­wood raf­fle was Mrs Nan Dart and $560 was raised on the day.

Once again this is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated and will be passed on to the Car­ers Accommodation Ap­peal in Al­bury.

The aux­il­iary’s next meet­ing is Mon­day, May 28 at 2pm and all are most wel­come.

There were 546 cat­tle yarded at Fin­ley sa­le­yards last Fri­day.

A large line of fair qual­ity An­gus bul­locks from Booli­gal were of­fered, along with a mix of veal­ers and sup­ple­men­tary fed steers and heifers.

The bulk of the cows were well con­di­tioned heavy beef cows. Cat­tle num­bers in­creased across both NSW and Vic­to­ria sa­le­yards, with pres­sure be­ing placed on prices in all cat­e­gories.

The medium weight grades came back by 8c to 20c/kg com­pared to a fort­night ago. The heavy steers were 9c less, while the bul­locks were firm to 3c/kg less. Beef cows lost 4c to 5c/kg.

The best of the veal­ers made from 183c to 218c, while year­ling steers C and B mus­cled made from 182c to 210c to av­er­age 189c/kg. The year­ling heifer por­tion made from 165c to 192c to av­er­age 179c, which was 8c to 15c/kg lower.

The heavy C3 and C4 steers had limited com­pe­ti­tion and prices came back by 9c and made from 185c to 192c/kg. The bul­locks re­mained firm to only 3c cheaper and ranged from 170c to 188c/kg.

The heavy beef cows made from 127c to 135c to av­er­age 134c and the best of the heavy Friesians reached 128c/kg.
