The McNeil family had plenty to celebrate on Tuesday after their third annual on-farm sale at Puketoro Station inland from Tokomaru Bay.

A couple of hundred would-be buyers and supporters attended the sale of 700 cattle and 7000 sheep and lambs, which all sold, leaving the McNeils with better returns than last year’s sale.
