Agents yarded 1492 Hereford steers which offered an average weight of 338kg - the same as this sale in 2017.

The sale driving force to demand was Wellington, NSW-based repeat buyer Paul Mason who secured most of his lots between 320- 331c/kg for a top price of $1271 during a haul of 300 head.

SA lot feeder, Princess Royal Station, Burra and Holbrook seed stock producers, Injemira Advanced Genetics were other serious buyers of EU-accredited lines while Landmark Leongatha and Colin Say & Co, Glen Inness, NSW provided the other major support along local backgrounder Tim Hutton, Nigretta.
