High prices at store sale

BIG numbers promised good prices at the Koonwarra store sale on Thursday.
Farmers attended the day hoping to sell well with good prices or buy cattle.
Landmark’s Terry Ginnane said there was a big yarding of cattle for the time of the year, with some of the most high end beef on offer he had seen before.
“The increased beef prices we’ve been getting are reflected in the store prices,” Mr Ginnane said.
“The best well bred feature line was met with strong competition.”
Ian Hengstberger of Dumbalk said the year had been good for cattle prices. He was looking to sell 100 Angus steers with his wife Richelle.
The Hengstberger family and the Western family from Elm Valley had some of the highest prices on the day.
“There was good local competition and most of the cattle were sold locally,” Mr Ginnane said.
