David Monk, 11/08/2023

Yarding 5370 Change + 1560

It was overall a plainer quality yarding with a large percentage of the cattle presenting in store condition. There were a few lots of well finished young cattle to suit the processors along with odd lots to suit the feeders. There were fair numbers of grown steers and heifers and very large numbers of cows yarded.

Not all the regular buyers were operating with both processors and feeder operators absent. Young cattle to the trade were firm to 4c cheaper with prime vealers selling to 344c/kg. Prime yearlings sold from 250c to 356c/kg. Feeder steers and heifers were 20c cheaper and more in places with the feeder steers selling from 228c to 351c while the feeder heifers sold from 180c to 283c/kg.

Young steers to the restockers were close to firm while the young heifers were up to 30c/kg cheaper. The young restocker steers sold from 160c to 360c while the young restocker heifers sold from 130c to 268c/kg.

Grown steers and heifers were 15c to 27c cheaper with the prime grown steers selling from 220c to 276c while the prime grown heifers sold from 210c to 260c/kg. Cows were 23c to 27c cheaper with quality a factor. 2 and 3 score cows sold from 80c to 210c while the prime heavy weight cows sold from 192c to 246c to average 219c/kg.

Cows to the restockers sold from 60c to 196c/kg.

Bulls were dearer with heavy weights selling to 245c/kg.
