Yarding 1896 Change 476

It was a very mixed yarding with a very good selection of well finished trade cattle out of the feedlot though there were only limited numbers of ideal feeder cattle.

There were large numbers of weaner cattle in store condition sourced from the far west and only limited numbers of cows and grown steers.
