With a potential dry and hot summer on the horizon, producers are now deciding to sell, or not.

Glenburn and Yea are only a short distance apart, and the season has been fairly kind, but maybe more so to David than his friends Judy Brookes and Duncan Hall.

David Webb is a producer from Glenburn, and a friend of Judy Brookes and Duncan Hall from Yea. Unlike his friends, David has decided to sit on his cattle for now.

David Webb is a producer from Glenburn, and a friend of Judy Brookes and Duncan Hall from Yea. Unlike his friends, David has decided to sit on his cattle for now.

David Webb was at Pakenham, Thursday, to give support to Judy and David, as they sold their 92 yearling steers.

Commenting on the season so far, David was happy to hold on until December to sell his cattle.

Feed costs have been high, but the cattle are in good condition. David has a large property at Glenburn and runs 1000 sheep, and 420 cows.

Although not far from Yea, Glenburn has had a slightly better start to spring, which is why David prefers to hold off selling. “Good quality steers will remain scarce, so any weight I can add will be a bonus,” David said.

David was thrilled for Judy and Duncan, Thursday, and he hopes to emulate them later in December, but with prime fat steers.
