The Umsenge Nguni auction was held at the Hobson & Co auction yard in Grahamstown on Thursday 11th May. An exceptional offering of very strictly screened cattle came under the hammer of Brandon Leer. There was a 100% sale although the prices did not really do the quality of the cattle justice and almost all the lots were bought by buyers from other provinces.
Sale Averages were as follows:
|Type of Stock||No||Average Price||Top Price||Buyer|
