Blackall combined agents yarded 4700 head weaner and store at the monthly weaner and store sale.  The yarding was mixed in quality with some very good weaners and feeder cattle penned.  A small penning of mixed quality fat cattle were penned.The better bred and presented lines attracted strong competition from a solid buying panel.  Buyers were very selective, and the rates achieved reflected this.  The yarding was drawn from Julia Creek, Hughenden, Winton, Longreach, Muttaburra, Aramac, Barcaldine, Jericho, Blackall, Tambo and Isisford districts.
