Cattle sales key to district

The first cattle sale of 2018 is set for Saturday, April 28 at the Stratton sales barn.

About 1,000 cattle are expected to be auctioned off at the sale, bringing a long awaited payday to many of the district's farmers.

“As a farmer, you don't get a paycheque every two weeks,” noted Kim Jo Bliss, a member of the Rainy River Cattlemen's Association and a sales barn volunteer.
