Cattle in excellent condition paraded at the opening of the Alice Springs Show today, attracting – organisers’ best guess – a crowd bigger than last year when 17,000 came through the gate, 10,000 on the first day.


There are about 35 sale bulls and 50 station cattle from three properties, Undoolya, Ammaroo and the Department of Primary Industry’s station.


A star at tomorrow’s bull sale is likely to be the Red Angus (pictured) chosen as the Supreme Champion Bull, shown by Mark Llewellyn from Keith, SA.


Last year’s top price for bulls was about $9000.
