With 2019 about to finish, we can only say that we are looking forward to a better season in 2020. Presently we are on a shade over 200 mm for the year, a very low rainfall for the second year running.
However, we have ended the year on a high note with a cull cow by Yamburgan Coolabah topping the Finley Prime Cattle Sale on December 18. Despite a drop in prices, this big cow still came in at $1634, weighing 760 kgs at 215 c/kg. Other Toogimbie cull cows also sold extremely well at Deniliquin on December 4, achieving the second top price. 5 cows sold at 235 c/kg weighing an average 734 kg, averaging $1724.90 a head.
None of these cows had seen green grass for months, yet had maintained excellent condition without supplementary feeding.
