Students soak up action at saleyard

STUDENTS swapped the classroom for saleyard chaos at the Warwick sheep sale yesterday.

Clancy Strong from Allora and Sam Della from Coffs Harbour were two of the youngest in attendance at the Warwick Saleyards, watching the auctioneers in action.

Sam said he was happy to visit his grandfather, Dennis Cassidy, in Warwick while on holidays, while Clancy said he was used to family life on the farm.

"My family's been out at Allora for about 20 years and we have sheep and cattle so I'm just in having a look about at the sales today," Clancy said.

"I'm in Year 11 at Downlands (College) and I'd definitely like to end up in the agricultural industry in one way or another."

Like his older acquaintance, Sam said he too would like to work on a rural property.

"My granddad's selling lambs today," he said.

"I like coming to visit him on the farm because I help him muster and get to ride my motorbike."
