Cattle sale attracts big numbers

About 1,285 head of cattle were moved through the Stratton sales yard Saturday, with many steers selling in the $0.90-$1.10/lb range.

But the buyers were picky this year, and not every steer was able to fetch such a high price.

“The general feeling was where the quality was, the price was,” noted Ralph Hunsperger, president of the Rainy River Cattlemen’s Association.

Pair bring a piece of country to Toronto

It’s a tale that closely resembles the one about the country mouse and the city mouse. But this one was real-life.

Local 4-H members Stacey Angus, 16, and Simone LeBlanc, 18, took part in “Today’s Leaders, Tomorrow’s Issues,” a workshop Aug. 23-25 at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto for about 60 rural and urban youths from across the province.
