June Cattle Sale comes through with the goods

Friday, 8 June, 2018

Approximately 2200 cattle were scanned for the End of Financial Year Cattle Sale this week at Euroa Saleyards, with every yard filled and buyers chomping at the bit come midday.

Due to the dry season, operators sent in cattle that would usually be kept on during the winter months.

Rodwells Auctioneer Anthony Delaney said the June Sale was an improvement on recent sales around the region, particularly given the season and current conditions.

“We saw a lot more widespread buyer support, with large crowd of buyers from areas such as Albury, Hamilton, Gippsland, Ballarat, Boort, Penola, Yea, Bendigo, Kyneton, Alexandra, Mansfield, Benalla, Cobram, Shepparton and Wangaratta, as well as local competition,” Mr Delaney explained.

“A good quality line up of Angus Steers and Heifers were the highlight of the sale, bringing prices $50-$100 dearer than seen in previous weeks around the state.”

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said the Euroa Saleyards is not only an asset to the local agriculture industry, but to agriculture across Victoria.

“It is great to see the Euroa Saleyards, which has had significant upgrades in the past few years, being utilised by our local farmers, as well as farmers from all over Victoria.”

“Agriculture is our lifeblood here in the Strathbogie Shire and I encourage residents and visitors to attend the next monthly sale, grab a steak sandwich and embrace the agriculture industry in action.”

The next Euroa Cattle Sale is scheduled for Wednesday 4 July at 12pm.
