Annual Angus rising two-year-old bull sales

Picture by Paul Rickard

More than 360 black cattle will face would-be buyers in the annual Angus rising two-year-old bull sales that start Monday and hopes are high for good clearances and top prices.

The young guys that are pictured from Charlie and Susie Dowding’s Rangatira Stud at Muriwai typify what delights lie in store for the buyers, a good number of whom will be here again from right around New Zealand.

They come here for the “cattlemens cattle” that the East Coast has always been renowned for. Bull Week starts with the Ratanui Angus sale at noon Monday, then Kaharau Stud that afternoon and evening.

Whangara and Turihaua Angus follow on Tuesday, then Rangatira Stud at Muriwai and the Combined sale at Matawhero saleyards will follow on Wednesday.

The Angus sales conclude at Turiroa Angus near Wairoa on Wednesday afternoon.

    Do you support the call for a feasibility study into developing an "inland port" and sending the district's export logs to Napier Port by rail, to get log trucks out of the city and to repurpose the port and harbour area?
