The rural sector in 2015 performed well and livestock prices dominated the year. Consumers and vendors gathered in Wagga for the regular farmers’ markets and there were some good results in the wool market.
The NSW cherry harvest yielded good results with the crop being declared a “bumper.” And rodeo riders from throughout the Riverina were in good form in the lead up to the two Christmas runs which occur in the region.
Some big numbers of sheep and lambs continued to flow through the Wagga Livestock Marketing Centre before the traditional Christmas break. And cattle numbers remained high too in early December 2015.
Harvest was in full swing and readers and online visitors shared their photos with The Rural for galleries and social media opportunities.
