Corunnun hobby farmers Dylan and Jade Hay made the most of the late winter sun to keep a close eye on cattle prices at the Warrnambool store sale.
The pair said they were watching the prices as they hoped to grow their current herd of 14 Hereford beef cows and calves.
"We have friends with cows on offer at the sale, so we though we would come up for a look," Mr Hay said.
"It is good to come along and keep an eye on the prices.
"Prices here are good, they seem to be holding strong.
"It is good that there is a bit of feed around at the moment."
Warrnambool Stock Agents Association president Kieran Johnston said the number of people at the sale was strong.
"Some of the buying people were from south-east South Australia, Ballarat, Colac and a lot of local restockers," Mr Johnston said.
