In a strong cattle sale at the Dannevirke saleyards last Thursday, more than $1.5 million was paid for top-quality stock.

"It was a good, strong sale and the stock were a real credit to our vendors," PGG Wrightson's Bjorn Anderson told the Dannevirke News.

Eighteen-month Charolais cattle went under the hammer at a successful sale in Dannevirke last week.

"This was one of the better line-ups of cattle in Dannevirke and there are only a few sales like it in New Zealand."

People paid for quality, Anderson said, with the top price of $1555 a head paid for Simon Herbert's annual line of 18-month Charolais steers while 2-year-old Angus steers sold on behalf of Allwood Farm made $1530 a head.
