IDW auction subdued

By Geoff Adams

Sale prices for the biggest International Dairy Week auction were more subdued this year, reflecting a tougher climate for the industry.

One of the leading lots, the first to be offered, sold for $16,000. The Camilla family cow was offered by Declan Patten and Brad Salmon.

The second lot sold by Walmsleys from South Australia went for $9000.

About 350 people attended the sale which averaged $4748.
