The usual panel of feed and trade buyers were in attendance, however one major export processor was absent from the buying panel.

A large number of local and interstate restockers were very active in the market.

Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock continued to improve in price. Medium and heavy weight yearling steers to feed experienced only quality related price changes.

Light weight yearling heifers to restockers or background sold to very solid demand and yearling heifers to feed followed a similar trend.

Most classes of cows experienced very little change in price compared to the previous sale.
