'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.
