PRIMARIES of WA in association with the Kimberley Pilbara Cattleman's Association (KPCA) will hold an inaugural online cattle sale tomorrow (June 7).
The sale will commence at 1.30pm (WST) on Tuesday, June 7, on AuctionsPlus with Primaries Kimberley representative Mitchell Braithwaite set to offer 1500 head of pastoral heifers and cows.
Mr Braithwaite said the sale was all about offering pastoralists more marketing options for their cattle.
"We are trying to give pastoralists more opportunities to open up different areas to sell their cattle which they may not have sold to in the past," Mr Braithwaite said.
"If the sale is successful and well supported, going forward we could hold a monthly sale during the pastoral selling seasons.
"We already have a number of nominations for a cattle sale in July, so if anyone is interested please contact myself."
