Yarding: 2,047 Head.
Numbers lifted by 430 head to 2,047 cattle for Charters Towers Combined Selling Agents this week, with fewer numbers of prime bullocks on offer, and prime cows of mixed quality, however two large lines of vealer and yearling steer attracted strong attention from a large buyer gallery. All processors were in attendance, with one previously absent very active in the market for slaughter cattle, while two live exporters, regular feeder buyers and central restockers ensured strong competition throughout the offering. Cattle were drawn from Burketown, Richmond, Mt Garnet, Einasleigh, Ingham, Woodstock, Ravenswood, Belyando, local and coastal areas.

Bovine Johne’s Disease Management in the Northern Territory
Following national deregulation and commencing July 1, 2017, the Northern Territory will be transitioning from the interim BJD management position of JBAS 7 to JBAS 6 for entry of cattle.
The Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association (NTCA) has consulted comprehensively with both NTCA members, which represent over 90% of the NT cattle herd, NT Department of Primary Industries and Resources (DPIR) staff and other stakeholders, to develop an informed and comprehensive industry position for the ongoing management of Bovine Johne’s Disease (BJD).
