Warwick sheep sale impresses visiting vendors

DECKED out with their Akubras and boots, no-one would have picked Terry and Evelyn Conway as out-of-towners or first-timers at the Warwick sheep sale last week.

The couple loaded up their dorper sheep and made the three-hour trip from Kingaroy for the sheep sale.

"I have to bring the animals down here because they don't have a sheep sale in Dalby any more," Mr Conway said.

"I had a long way to come."

Mr Conway was impressed with the saleyards.

"The system is good here," he said.

"The auctioneers are on the ball and are keeping a pretty good pace."

Despite the dry weather the farmer said the lambs were selling reasonably well.

"It has been very dry," he said.

"The breeders might be struggling a bit.

"We really need some significant rain.

"My word it would help."

Mrs Conway said a small shower would not cut it though.

"We need a lot of rain," she said.

"At home we have had 27 inches this year.

"Last year we had more than 50 inches."

Mr Conway said Kingaroy was feeling it a little bit but was not nearly as dry as Warwick.

"We have pretty good feed up there," he said.

The Conways were not the only out-of-towners attending the sale, with Dale and Joyce Iseppi travelling in from Tara to get an idea of the prices.

"I'm here mainly to check out the sheep prices for my sister," Mr Iseppi said.

"We have been here before but not very often.

"The prices are pretty down at the moment.

"The rain that is due will be a big help."
