Livestock Auctions

As the summers country shows come to an end for this season, then consider visiting your local livestock auction in a town near you.
 Here you can see your local farmers going about their business buying and selling livestock.
 You get to see first hand the quality of the beef animals before they enter the food chain.
 Also you may see some judging of sheep or pigs, allowing you to get up close and personal.
 Meeting the producers is enlightning, listening to how they prepare their animals for the show and sales ring.
 If you have a few hours to spare the next time you go shopping, then pop into your local livestock mart and get familiar with all that is shared in how your food is produced.
These Marts are frequent, friendly and above all Free, so go on treat yourself or your children and visit your local livestock auction.
