Buyer representation was good with the return of the previous weeks panel of buyers, however not all were operating in a generally dearer market.

The rain across some districts lifted the enthusiasm of a large number of cattle producers, resulting in prices improving across a number of classes.

Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock averaged 35c/kg dearer. Yearling steers to feed for the domestic market averaged 26c/kg better, and heavy weight yearling steers to feed also improved in price.

Light weight yearling heifers experienced price improvements of 29c/kg. Medium and heavy weight yearling heifers to feed lifted in price by 22c to 25c/kg. Most classes of cows sold to a dearer trend with improvements of 14c to 22c/kg.

Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock made to 360.2c with a good sample averaging 331c/kg. Medium weight yearling steers to feed made to 354c to average 336c, and heavy weight yearling steers to feed made to 346.2c to average 326c/kg.

Light weight yearling heifers were well supplied and made to a top of 332c to average 302c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed made to 339c to average 323c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to feed made to 330c to average 315c/kg.

A small selection of heavy grown steers made to 334c, and a small sample of heavy grown heifers made to 325c/kg.
