'It is a buyer's market'
ORGANISERS hope today starts as yesterday finished at the Rockhampton Brahman Week Sale.
Colby Ede, Landmark Rockhampton's stud stock officer for North Queensland and the Northern Territory, said after a quiet morning the action heated up in the afternoon at the CQLX Saleyards at Gracemere.
Mr Ede said it was a buyer's market.
"We had a good crowd of people," Colby said of the opening day of the three-day sale.
"It was a bit quieter in the morning, but we had a very strong finish."
He said people had come from across Central Queensland and further afield, including Western Australia, for the sale.
"It's definitely a buyer's market, there are some very good quality bulls on sale," Colby said.
"There's a great opportunity for people to come and buy Brahman bulls of high quality."
Close to 300 bulls were presented yesterday.
Top sale of the day was $35,000 for a JDH Atlas son on account of John Kirk of Gayndah.
Another notable sale was the $24,000 paid for a Red Brahman, presented by Peter and Sue Gray, of Marlborough.
- The Rockhampton Brahman Week Sale finishes at the end of tomorrow;
- It is Australia's biggest and best value Brahman bull sale.
