Sale a must on visitors’ agenda

THE lure of the many bargains to be had at Warwick's pig and calf sale led Mudgee couple Phil and Ann Grant to ensure their trip to visit their daughter, Tracie Thomson, coincided with a Wednesday.

It had been two years since the pair walked around and through the auction items - two years too long, according to Mr Grant.

"Last time we were here I picked up an old fuel pump and it now has a special place in the shed on my farm," he said.

The sheep and cattle farmer said he had spent the morning trying to work out how many items he would be able to fit in his caravan.

"There is so much to choose from," he said.

Mrs Grant said while the bargain hunting was more her husband's thing, she did enjoy the atmosphere at the pig and calf sale.

"The atmosphere here is just great," she said.

"Everyone is just so friendly."
