Solid yarding at the monthly cattle fair
The monthly cattle fair on Tuesday at the Matawhero saleyards has a line-up of around 2200 head scheduled at this stage. The weekly sheep sale was cancelled yesterday due to insufficient numbers of stock available for sale.
“That’s expected at this time of year,” a sales spokesman said. “It’s pretty much the calm before the storm, because we expect thousands of store lambs to come forward in the mid to late November period.”
