Nalinga farmer Malcolm Gall spent weeks building a heavy duty portable cattle race only to have thieves steal it along with 15 panels of portable fencing.DARREN LINTON March 21, 2014 5:37am
The stock yards and race were behind a locked gate on his property bordering Midland Hwy at Nalinga, but the thieves simply drove over a fence.
‘‘It is a major highway, but there was a fence and the gate was locked,’’ he said.
The theft of the equipment, valued at about $6000, took place between Monday and Wednesday and Mr Gall said it would have required a large vehicle and some manpower.
‘‘You need a jack to lift it up, it isn’t an easy thing to do, you have to have the equipment,’’ he said.
Five portable fence panels were left behind.
‘‘They must have run out of room, I usually only carry 10 on my ute,’’ Mr Gall said.
‘‘It would have taken them half an hour to do it all.’’
