Terry and Paul Brennan have been establishing a beef producing business at Walkerville/Tarwin Lower for the past two years and were able to add to their numbers with purchases at the Koonwarra saleyards last Friday.

Nutrien Ag stockagent Kevin Morgan chats with Tim Missen of Dennison, formerly of Carrajung. Mr Morgan has had a 60-year association with the Missen farming family.

AGENTS yarded 4200 store cattle at last Friday’s VLE Leongatha store sale which provided all vendors with some outstanding results.

The quality of the yarding was excellent and a credit to the vendors with large runs of straight bred heavy steers and quality weaners yarded.

The day belonged to the feedlot operators and processors (for lot feeding) securing a large percentage of all the cattle 350kg to 630kg in both the steer and heifer section.

Prices improved 10-20 cents a kg for these cattle with an extra buyer at the rail from Southern Queensland competing strongly against the regular feedlot buyers with local graziers only securing the odd few pens.

The weaner section for both steers and heifers was stronger with backgrounding orders from NSW and South Australia competing strongly against the locals.

There were fewer crossbred and dairy types yarded which sold firm to slightly dearer rates.
