The export buying panel in the grown steer and bullock portion was not as good as the previous week, however the regular buying panel was present and active in the cow section.

Feeder representation was good, and there was some additional interstate restockers in attendance. Light weight yearling steers and heifers returning to the paddock improved in price. Yearling steers and heifers to feed received strong support to experience only quality related price changes. A small selection of heavy grown steers and bullocks sold to a cheaper trend.
