The sale, brought to Roma by
the Australian Texas Longhorn Alliance, will feature a large number of
registered fullblood Texas Longhorns, and is expected to bring interested
buyers and onlookers from all over Australia.
Due to the popularity of this event, the Roma Saleyards will be conducting a
special tour on the day, taken by the renowned volunteer tour leaders.
Councillor Peter Flynn, Portfolio Chair for Roma Saleyards, said the special
tour will be a great opportunity for anyone, local or visiting, to share in the
excitement of this Queensland first.
“The Roma Saleyards’ volunteer tour leaders will be on hand come Saturday,
ready to show people around our impressive facility made even more interesting
by the iconic breed of cattle being displayed - the Texas Longhorn,” Cr Flynn
“The Roma Saleyards is excited to have been chosen as the cattle selling facility
to host this sale, and Council hopes to see many events similar to this take
place well into the future.”
Those wishing to attend the special tour are encouraged to meet at the Roma
Saleyards Bull Ring at 8.15am for an 8.30am start. Selling of the Texas
Longhorns will commence at 10am.
