Yarding 5380 Change 949

A full panel of export processors was present and operating, along with the usual feed and trade buyers, plus local and interstate restockers.

Despite the increase in numbers buyers were able to absorb the larger supply plus lift average prices on a number of classes. Interstate and local restockers pushed prices on light weight young cattle to new high levels. Yearling steers to feed continued to climb in price with heavy weight yearling steers averaging 10c/kg better.

Most classes of yearling heifers to feed also improved in price. A larger supply of bullocks were in demand and prices experienced some small improvements.

Cows generally sold to a dearer trend with average prices lifting by 2c to 5c/kg.

Yearling steers under 200kg made to 632.2c with a large sample averaging 556c/kg. Yearling steers under 280kg made to 560c with a very large selection averaging 486c/kg. Yearling steers to feed for the domestic market averaged from 437c to 460c with the occasional sale to 486.2c/kg.

Heavy weight yearling steers to feed made to 446.2c with a large selection averaging 431c/kg. Yearling heifers under 200kg were well supplied and made to 620c to average 527c/kg. Yearling heifers to feed averaged from 429c to 440c and made to 470c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 410c and made to 426c/kg.

Heavy grown steers to export processors averaged 387c, and the bullock portion 388c, with some to 398c/kg.

A small selection of over condition full mouth bullocks made to 332.2c to return $3083/head.

Medium weight plain condition cows returning to the paddock made to 296c and averaged 288c/kg. Medium weight 2 scores to processors averaged 282c and made to 289c/kg.

A large sample of good heavy weight cows averaged 323c with the occasional sale to 340c/kg. Heavy bulls made to 374.2c/kg to return $3405/head.
