Sheep producers from across the region made their way to Deniliquin for the annual store sheep sale on Friday

The crowds of buyers, sellers and onlookers eagerly followed the agents from pen to pen, with almost 30,000 sheep to auction.

The hot sun may not have helped with the smell of sheep manure filling the yards, but the foliage above offered some respite to crowds.

And while the market was down from last year, most owners were happy with their results from the day.
