A quality line-up of joined Angus females, cows and calves and heifer weaners were the highlight at the Angus Female Sale at the Euroa Saleyards.

The sale, held on December 13, saw nearly 2600 cattle scanned with prices just behind those of last year’s sale.

M. J. and O. J. Hill, of Ruffy, had 73 Angus heifers sold by Rodwells, which averaged $2350 and topped at $2625, and another 12 sold by Elders which also topped at $2625.

Elders livestock agent Joe Allen said it was a positive sale.

‘‘It was a good sale — cheaper than last year,’’ he said.

‘‘It was off the pace a bit; it has not been as good a season as last year, generally.

‘‘It was fairly strong considering the market.’’

A large crowd attended, with buyers from Shepparton, Yea, Bendigo, Kyneton, Alexandra, Mansfield, Benalla, Cobram, Wangaratta, Myrtleford, Albury, Ballarat and many from the Euroa area.
