Yarding 3934 Change -227

There was a small reduction in supply and a fair panel of buyers was present and included in the line-up were some interstate export processors plus some additional feeder buyers and the usual restockers.

There was a wide variation in quality across most categories. Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock generally experienced very little change in price. Medium weight yearling steers to feed averaged 7c dearer and the heavy weights improved by 2c/kg and considerably more on well-bred lines. Light weight yearling heifers improved in price and medium weights to feed lifted by 5c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 8c to 13c/kg dearer.

A lift in the quality of the bullocks resulted in average prices improving by 13c/kg. Good heavy cows held close to the improved prices of the previous sale while the 2 and 3 score classes gained 3c to 6c/kg. Steer calves returning to the paddock made to an isolated 298.2c with a large number around 257c while lesser quality mixed sex calves averaged 215c/kg. Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock sold close to 259c with some to 294.2c/kg. Medium weight yearling steers to feed averaged 268c and made to 275.2c/kg.

The largest numbers of heavy weights to feed averaged 269c and well-bred lines made to 284.2c/kg. A large supply of light weight yearling heifers sold to restockers or backgrounders at an average of 236c with sales of 256.2c and the lesser quality lines averaged 205c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 245c and made to 262.2c and heavy weights averaged 247c and made to 258.2c/kg. Heavy grown steers made to 283.2c to average close to 270c and the bullock portion made to 280.2c with most around 272c/kg. Poor condition cows averaged 138c and medium weight 2 scores averaged 169c/kg. Heavy 3 scores average 191c and the best of the good heavy cows made to 214.2c to average 206c/kg.
