A bumper year for beef - NRLX tops $100 mil in sales
Highlighting why Casino is the Beef Capital, for the first time ever the Northern Rivers Livestock Exchange (NRLX) has returned a yearly sales revenue of more than $100 million. Following the T & W McCormack and Ramsey & Bulmer combined store sale and annual Angus Brangus sale last Friday, sales revenue for 2016-2017 reached a whopping $100,171,671 with 104,517 head sold - and there are still nine sales remaining for the year. The bumper year has seen great returns to the local producers and agents, and is a massive boost to the local economy. The numbers speak for themselves and show why the NRLX ias the number one selling option in northern NSW for producers looking to get premium returns on their cattle. If producers continue to send their cattle to the saleyards, buyers have to attend to purchase the cattle they require, which in turn creates competition and, ultimately, ensures producers receive the best returns available.
