Quality weaners yarded in Biggenden
DESPITE the drought conditions earlier in the season, the quality of cattle at the All Breeds Weaner Sale at Biggenden keeps improving.
A magnificent line-up of Weaner steers and heifers were presented to judge Andrew Simmons of Woodine, Taroom at Thursday's sale.
He said the cattle were a credit to the vendors who participated in the sale.
Burnett Livestock & Realty's Lance Whitaker was full of praise for his crew after more than 2800 head had been yarded.
"We also appreciate the support of vendors,” he said.
"Without you we wouldn't have a sale.”
Mr Whitaker said it had been the best line-up they'd had.
"It's been a late season as we didn't any good rain before Cyclone Debbie came,” he said.
"The quality of cattle keep improving.
"The vendors need to give themselves a pat on the back for this increase in quality.”
Gigoomgan Pastoral's Les Rockemer, who took out the brangus class, said his cattle had slim pickings before the rain came.
"It wasn't real good”
"It was like a desert about our house,” Mr Rockemer said.
