Cattle were mostly drawn from the local supply area with some Western Queensland cattle yarded.

A good buying panel was in attendance with both exporter and trade buyers present and operating.

The overall quality of the yarding was good. Demand was strong across the board which saw prices improve overall.

Particularly for yearling steers, bulls to feed and cows. Medium weight steers to feed improved by 10c/kg. Heavy weight cows improved by 11c to 14c/kg. Light weight yearling steers under 200kg to restockers made to 534.2c to average 472c/kg.
