A week for people and bulls

BULL PEOPLE: The accolades have sounded loud and clear about the great success of the bull sales season this year in this district. In this picture are Pat Lane and his team at Whangara. Pictures by Paul Rickard
While it was primarily about the bulls, it was also about the people involved, people like the crowd for Ratanui’s opening sale at Matawhero ...

It was also a week of a probable record $4.4 million turnover, better averages and best ever prices, for animals like the one Peter Reeves steered round the pen at Mokairau in this picture. Well done everyone!
