Burnett Livestock & Realty’s open auction store sale on Monday saw a rain affected yarding of 306 head. There was a predominately breeder focus with 181 x 181 cows and calves yarded. While torrential rain forecasts kept cattle away it also put some depth in the demand for breeders.
A top quality line of Droughtmaster cows and calves from Mundubbera sold to a top of $1910 to average $1677. Quality Angus bulls sold to $3800. Droughtmaster cows from Mundubbera sold to $1130.
