Store sheep prices were marked down in the closing sale at Wycheproof
It was a big year for sheep and beef studs at on-property and multi-vendor sales, as well as in the show ring.
A large yarding of mixed quality cattle and a lack of follow up rain in the north didn’t impact prices at Wodonga as much as might have been expected.
Recent local rains boosted producers’ optimism about their feed prospects ahead and that was reflected in the prices paid.
EARLIER this month, Derrynock Poll Dorset stud, Trentham East, recorded an on-property sale record, selling a ram to a top of $26,000.
Volume buyer, Glenthompson Pastoral Co, Glenthompson, paid a sale top of $11,500 at the 28th Annual Horsham Border Leicester ram and ewe sale on Monday.
Charolais studs, Chenu and Windjammer, picked up multiple broad ribbons during the Royal Geelong Interbreed judging.
