3,000 AACo breeders took our Roma selling team 75 minutes to sell, with the breeders achieving above expectations.
The Roma Livestock Marketing team led by Rod Turner presented the breeders to an enthusiastic panel of buyers from 3 States.
15 Landmark branches were represented at the sale. Rod, Brad Vidler, Andrew Holt and Nick Shorten did a fantastic job with the presentation of the Brunette Downs cattle from Tennant Creek NT. Branch support was also evident from surrounding branches with Trent McKinlay from Injune and Anthony Hyland from Mitchell highly involved in the preparation of the breeders for the sale.
"If there are any doubters in regard to the effect of the Landmark Livestock Network's capability to deliver, they would have witnessed a premium display last week in Roma," said Brendan Wade, Divisional Livestock Manager.. "The passion and pride our Maranoa team displayed for their job was first class and a credit to their professionalism."
