Travis Hams of Fish Creek had a busy day at last week’s store sale, loading up his truck with cattle to make a 12-hour return trip to a feedlot in northern Victoria. kg162219

Father and daughter Darren Thompson of Foster and Jade Thompson of Mount Eccles bought six Red Angus steers for their small acreage at last Thursday’s store sale. Darren said prices were “fair”. kg152219

Jaimee Giliam of Meeniyan attended last week’s store sale with her sons Lachlan and Heath and her mother-in-law Annie. Jaimee and Annie sold 170 Red Angus, Angus cross, and Friesian steers. It was the dairy farmers’ first time at a store sale- their husbands were “too busy building a new dairy” to attend as they normally would. kg122219

Neil Chandler of Hedley and Brian Cantwell of Stony Creek observed there was a big variation in the quality of cattle and “not big numbers buying” at last week’s store sale. kg142219

ANOTHER large yarding of 4200 store cattle came forward at last week’s Leongatha store sale.
The yarding consisted another good large offering of heavy cattle suitable for the feedlots down to very light poor condition types.
Feedlot operators and backgrounders dominated the sale and possibly purchased 50 per cent or more of the yarding with the locals bidding strongly on the well-bred weaners with prices being similar to previous sales.
The secondary types/plainer and dairy cross cattle were harder to sell and sold at cheaper rates.
