The family duo; window shoppers; factory and feedlot agents; farmers and more.

  • Dealers
You’ll find them around the ring, claiming cattle on the bridge - left; right; and centre!

  • International Exporters
The ones that make them presence felt at the ringside when it comes to E and U grade weanlings.

  • Farmers/ Irregular Attendees
The ones wearing wellies and overalls that stans ‘up the back’ and analyse every wink and blink.

  • Everyone's favourite auctioneer
They are fair when it comes to trading matters ringside.

  • The 'sound drovers'
The ones that will sort and load your stock even if there is a 2km tailback, but on one condition - that you throw them a tenner!
  • Factory Agents
They will give you a run for your money when it comes to all the heavy and factory-fit animals in the town!

  • Feedlot Agents
The ones that can always be found carrying ‘brown envelopes’ and buying store cattle.

  • The haulier that everyone knows!
The one that travels the length and breadth of the country to marts and factories six days a week.

  • The Family Duo
Usually, a father and son or a father and daughter!

  • The Young Gun that thinks they know it all!

There’s always one.

  • Window-shoppers

The ones that buy an animal or two a year, but spend the rest of the year doing the back-of-envelope calculations.
