Dry con­di­tions are con­tin­u­ing to af­fect lo­cal cat­tle mar­kets

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Rural Roundup -

ALTHOUGH last Fri­day morn­ings store cat­tle sale yard­ing at Wan­garatta drew 800 head, it was show­ing signs of the ex­tended dry con­di­tions.

“Bet­ter cat­tle met strong de­mand and sold ac­cord­ingly for about $3 per kilo­gram, but the plainer sec­ondary cat­tle met lim­ited de­mand,” said Cor­co­ran Parker live­stock agent Kevin San­der­son.

“Lo­cal pro­duc­ers are see­ing very dry con­di­tions which will af­fect fu­ture prices ev­ery­where.

“Good cat­tle will con­tinue to sell well to strong en­quiry but plain cat­tle will be met with lim­ited de­mand and peo­ple will strug­gle to feed them.”
