Yarding 4008 Change 90
Numbers experienced little change and remained close to last week’s yarding. Quality has improved as vendors get the feel of 2017. The usual feeder and restocker buyers were in attendance and operating in a dearer market. A full panel of export processors were present but not all were operating.
The recent rainfall appears to have built confidence in the restockers with prices up 10c/kg. Feeder operators lifted prices on steers by 5c while the supermarkets clinched the medium weight heifers to feed at a lift of 14c/kg. Cows highlighted the market with a rise of 7c to 10c/kg.
Larger runs of lighter yearling steers to the restockers reached 445.2c with an average of 395c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers topped 384.2c with an average of 367c/kg. The lead of the heavy feeder steers topped 355.2c and averaged 348c/kg. Light weight yearling heifers to restockers topped 378.2c and averaged 351c/kg. Medium weight heifers to feed topped 345.2c and averaged 341c/kg. The heaviest heifers reached 323.2c to average 311c/kg.
Grown steers over 500kg reached 314.2c to average 305c with bullocks reaching 303.2c to average 298c/kg. Light weight cows were purchased by the works to average 229c and mid-range cows reached 260.2c with an average of 251c/kg. Heaver cows destined for the works reached 269.2c and averaged 255.7c/kg. Bulls over 600kg topped 285.2c/kg.
