Yarding 5430 Change 524
The yarding consisted of a good supply of yearlings, while cows dominated the grown cattle section.
The penning of young cattle comprised a good supply of mainly light and medium weight yearlings, along with a fair number of heavy yearlings.
Quality was mixed, with the largest percentage of young cattle in 2 score condition, however there was several runs of well bred cattle through the sale that were suitable for feeder and background buyers.
The market varied, mainly dictated by quality.
Restockers showed more interest this week, on both the steers and heifers, especially the better bred cattle.
Light restocker and feeder steers were 10c to 15c dearer, reaching a top of 308c for an average of 257c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers topped at 308c to average 279c/kg. Heavy feeder steers gained increased interest as the sale progressed, making to 316c to average 271c/kg.
Feeder heifers were 20c dearer, averaging 252c for a top price of 275c/kg. Grown steers topped at 290c and heifers sold to 240c/kg.
The cow market improved, although some of the plainer cows were slightly easier in places. Light plain conditioned cows sold from 100c to 169c, while 2 score medium weights averaged 167c and the 3 scores averaged 188c/kg. Heavy cows made from 191c to 212c/kg.
