More than 800 bulls have been rounded up for Australia's largest bull sale in central Queensland.
Graziers from around the country are at the Gracemere saleyards near Rockhampton for the Brahman Week bull sales.
Organisers are hoping for better results this year after a ban on live cattle exports affected buyer interest last year.
Australian Brahman Breeders Association spokesman John Croaker says it takes plenty of hard work to run the event.
"Getting the bulls into their pre-allocated pens, settled down used to the water and then washed and penned for sale," he said.
Mr Croaker says while the live cattle export ban affected sales last year, there has been strong interest this year.
"We were still in shock last year at the suspension of the live export trade,' he said.
"Unfortunately it's still been a very, very difficult year for the northern producers that were relying heavily on that market, but I guess what has happened since is the seasons have been reasonably good."
