A bigger yarding this week of 5300 head due to some areas missing out on rain.
A very strong market saw an increase of 1,300 head.
Some very good lines of cows, feeder steers and heifers.
Cows & calves met with a strong demand, $1300 for plainer types and $1900 top.
Some good lines of cows and calves are expected to come forward in coming weeks.
Having the big shed above the yards in Dalby were appreciated by all especially the cattle.
