The station’s western boundary comprises creek and river estuaries and the Gulf of Carpentaria coast. This week manager Paul Edwards, overseer John Kerr and plant supervisor Rowan Beezley, came to see 753 of the station’s cattle sold at the Charters Towers sale. Agent Darrol Crouch along with agents Queensland Rural sold the cattle le to a number of buyers including Chris Le Feuuvre from Reid River. The sale of 256 steers rs grossed $ 192,202. Mr Crouch said the cattle le travelled about 1000km to the saleyards ds from Delta where they had a Meet and Greet et in the form of a run through the dip and a feed ed of hay courtesy of saleyard contractor Leanne ne Philipson. It’s a great success story for this reemote station out there on the Gulf of Carpenn- taria coast.
