Buyers from Queensland, Hunter Valley and west to Ebor were ringside as a quality yarding of local cattle went through Kempsey saleyards.

More than 1500 head of cattle were offered at the Kempsey Stock and Land 29th annual steer and bullock sale today on the Mid North Coast.

Buyers from Queensland, Hunter Valley and west to Ebor were ringside as a quality yarding of local cattle went through Kempsey saleyards.

“2018 is looking good especially our feed situation with plenty of rain now we are getting the summer heat, so we should be right until winter,” Laurie Argue from Kempsey Stock and Land said.

”We had a good turn over of numbers last year in the Macleay Valley, numbers should be the same this year if not better.”

The best pen of bullocks (sponsored by Vetmec/Chemvet) was awarded to Tania Clarke with the runner-up Mick Mainey.

The best pen of feeder steers (sponsored by Mavin Truck Centre) went to Ken Burke with runner-up Peter Tyne.

The best pen of weaner steers (sponsored by Dee Amber Rural) was awarded to Allan Winslow with runner-up Peter Halliday.

Allan and Claire Prior auctioned off a bullock with proceeds going to cancer research.

More report to come.
