What was everyone smiling about at Biggenden?

WITH prices never seen before of 426.2/kg at the Biggenden Saleyards, everyone was smiling after Thursday’s All Breeds Steer Sale.

Burnett Livestock & Realty’s Lance Whitaker said it had been a big effort by everyone with a shade under 3000 head yarded.

“I am immensely proud of our staff and the vendors who supported the sale,” he said.

Mr Whitaker told the crowd to please enjoy themselves, relax, enjoy the season and enjoy the market.

“It’s a day all about smiles,” he said.

Judge John Ferriday said it had been a tough job.

“There wasn’t much in it,” he said.

“I did have to go backwards and forwards between some of the pens to make my final decision.”

He said today was a big achievement,

“You have a great line-up of cattle after it only raining in the past three weeks,” Mr Ferriday said.
