The cattle market held up despite tough seasonal conditions at the annual Southern Slopes Angus Female Cattle Sale at the Boorowa Saleyards Wednesday May 1.
Vendors from throughout the southern slopes brought a total of 1000 Angus cattle from districts including Crookwell, Goulburn, Yass, Young, Harden and Cootamundra.
Dermot McGrath of Elders Rural Services said the sale was an outstanding quality yarding of Angus cattle.
“It attracted buyers from around NSW and interstate,” he said.
Although the sale was not as strong as last year’s, vendors were happy with the result considering seasonal conditions.
Young cows and calves sold to a market top of $1 300 and were purchased by Victorians.
Preg tested heifers sold to a market top of $820, and preg tested young cows made to $800 with the older cows realising up to $740.
Angus heifer weaners made to a top of $450.
