Three-year-old wapiti stags were up for auction at the Lochinvar Wapiti Farm's 14th annual auction yesterday.

PGG Wrightson deer representative for Southland, Brian Duggan, said it was a complete clearance, with all stags being sold.

Prices ranged from $2300 upwards, with the highest being $5100, he said.

The auction was well attended, with a ''good following'' and people from further afield, he said. More wapiti sales were scheduled for the coming week, he said.
