Little impact on prices at saleyards

THE recent blaze at the Murray Bridge Thomas Foods International (TFI) meat processing plant has had little impact on the market at the Mount Gambier saleyards following the first sales at Glenburnie on Wednesday.

Saleyards manager Peter Mitchell said the price dropped slightly across the board, however it was no different to anywhere else across the state.

“It dropped a little bit, so it obviously had a minor effect to the market, but it wasn’t significant,” Mr Mitchell said.

“It was actually better here than it was at Naracoorte.”

Mr Mitchell said while some of the price-drop could be put down to the tragedy
