Record Online Cattle Sale In Victoria

01 February 2010

AUSTRALIA - A Victorian cattle vendor has sold 600 weaner cattle online to break records.

The sale is the biggest single vendor online cattle sale in southern Australia, according to ABC Rural .

Woodhouse cattle producer George Crocombe says successful buyers were from New South Wales, South Australia and Gippsland in Victoria.

However he says Queensland buyers pulled out because of transport costs.

"I chose to sell online because I thought it was better for the cattle," he says.

"They're still on their feed in the paddock and they'll just go off quietly in the truck. So it's very satisfactory, particularly to feedlotters."
