Good numbers of properly finished cows sold to very strong competition lifting by up to 25c in another small yarding.

Numbers were back by 145 for a yarding of 910. It was a pretty good quality yarding with a good selection of well finished cows along with some good trade cattle. There was also a pretty good selection of young steers and heifers to suit the feeders and there were only limited numbers of plain conditioned young cattle. Most of the regular processor and feeder buyers were in attendance and operating.
