Droughtmaster sale prices rise



DESPITE no record-breaking prices at this year's Glenlands and Capricorn Droughtmaster Sales, organisers, ven- dors and buyers alike were happy with the results.

Glenlands Droughtmaster Stud, owned by the Childs family at Boulder- combe, was the contributing vendor to Tuesday's sale with 202 lots offered.

There were 197 lots sold with the highest price $52,500.

Elders manager Neil Croft said this year's result was outstanding because the average prices were higher than last year's sale.

Yesterday's Capricorn Droughtmas- ter sale had 97 lots for sale and 85 sold. The average price was $3767, with a top price of $9000 and two $8500 sales.

The national Droughtmaster sale, to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, will offer 595 bulls and 14 females.

A crowd of 400-500 is expected. Landmark manager Bernie Hoch ex- pects next week's sale to be equally as good as last year.
