“We have several vendors have been in the sale for many years, but we’re also getting new studs in the sale every year,” Mr Job said.

“In previous years we’ve had commercial and stud support, and some studs have been set up using cattle from Dubbo as their foundation sires.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for new breeders to get their genetics out there.”
