Twenty rising 2-year-old Angus bulls will be on offer at Peters Angus’s 13th annual bull sale in Beaumont on the final day of this month.
He manages the 25ha opposite Beaumont Pub, running the bulls and the 1600ha farm Clutha Downs, home to about 4800 commercial ewes, a Suffolk-Texel stud and an Angus cow stud.
Any of the farm near Clutha River benefited from the dew from river fog when it was dry.
Land away from the river "got fried" during the drought.
Rain had fallen this month but the days were shorter and colder and grass growth was slow.
"It’s better than nothing."
