Yarding 4570 Change +540

As the dry weather continues the cattle keep rolling in with numbers lifting by 540 for a yarding of 4570.

Overall, it was a much plainer quality yarding with only odd lots of young cattle to suit the feeders though there were some well finished young cattle to suit the trade buyers.

There were good numbers of grown steers and cows, limited numbers of grown heifers and there were large numbers of Bos Indicus cattle throughout Young cattle to the trade were firm with prime vealers selling to 450c/kg.
