Naracoorte Regional Livestock Exchange postpones weaner sale

HOT conditions have resulted in today's weaner sale at the Naracoorte Regional Livestock Exchange being postponed.

Agents have rescheduled the sale of 1400 joined heifers and cows to January 30, with the temperature this week expected to be in the mid to high 40s.

Although research shows the air temperature under the saleyard at roof would be up to 25 degrees cooler than outside on a 45 degree day, agents and producers were concerned about mustering and transporting cows in the extreme heat.
