Total Yarding: 3,411

It was the inaugural Kerr & Co. Livestock Feature Spring Cattle Sale at Mortlake with just over 3,400 cattle penned, in what has since been described by some local Mortlake producers as the best yarding of cattle seen in Mortlake in 25 years.

Kerr & Co. were thrilled with the state-of-the-art facility and how well the cattle settled and were presented in the pens, which gave the very large crowd a wonderful ability to inspect and view the cattle.

A highlight of the sale was the 1500 spring-drop steers that were headlined once again by the Kilkenny steers, which won the David Powling memorial shield for the best-presented pen for the fourth year in a row.

Kerr & Co. were very pleased with the buying support that came from South Australia, NSW, throughout Victoria and locally, and especially from the major feedlotters.

In particular, Kerr & Co. acknowledged their clients’ support in relocating the sale to the wonderful WVLX facility in Mortlake and feel that the producers were suitably rewarded for that trust, with a very successful sale.
