100 percent success
McNeil Farming staged another outstanding on-farm sale on Puketoro Station inland from Tokomaru Bay yesterday, with all 11,500 head of sheep and cattle snapped up by a keen bench of buyers.
The sale attracted a crowd of around 300 people, which was up on last year. Top dollar for the sheep was $266 for two-tooth ewes and $1670 for a line of two-year Angus steers.
“It was a very positive sale for the sheep and the cattle met the market,” said auctioneer Shane Scott from Central Livestock.
