Casino All Breeds Bull and Female Sale to go ahead

IN a show of good faith, Richmond Valley Council will issue a one-off operating licence to allow the all-important Casino All Breeds Bull and Female Sale to go ahead at the Northern Rivers Livestock Exchange (NRLX) on Saturday 29 July.

The All Breeds Sale Committee is made up of Richmond Valley producers, and operates as a not-for-profit entity, focusing on trading locally-bred cattle.

General Manager Vaughan Macdonald said Council was well aware the popular annual sale, which had been booked in for months, was an essential sale day for stud vendors.

Mr Macdonald said Council would again absorb the NRLX’s running costs for the day, estimated at $4500, which contributes to the Committee’s generous donations to local charities.

“The All Breeds Sale is one of the largest events known on Australia’s east coast, and is highly regarded by the cattle industry throughout the region and beyond as a premier event,” he said.

“Now in its 25th year, the sale has stood the test of time and has Council’s full support.”

More than 800 people took part in last year’s sale, which saw a new record set for the top price bull at $28,000 – $8000 above the 2021 price.

An impressive $1,300,750 of livestock sold on the day, at an overall average of $9291, including females. An average price of $9500 for bulls was achieved with a 91.5 percent clearance rate.
