Yarding 4020 Change -1180

It was a mixed yarding with fair numbers of young cattle to suit the feeders and processors along with good numbers of secondary young cattle throughout the yarding.

There were fair numbers of grown steers and heifers and there was a good supply of cows and Bos Indicus cattle.

Not all the usual buyers were operating resulting in another cheaper market.

Young cattle to the trade were 15c cheaper and more in places with prime yearlings selling from 270c to 394c/kg.

Feeder steers were 22c cheaper while the feeder heifers were up to 15c easier except for the medium weights which were 10c/kg dearer. Feeder steers sold from 258c to 396c while the feeder heifers sold from 240c to 351c/kg.

Young cattle to the restockers were up to 30c cheaper with the young steers selling from 200c to 403c while the young restocker heifers sold from 170c to 334c/kg. Grown steers and heifers were 30c to 40c cheaper with prime grown steers selling from 269c to 335c/kg.

Prime grown heifers sold from 275c to 326c/kg. Cows were 25c to 30c cheaper with the 2 and 3 scores selling from 130c to 226c/kg. Prime heavy weight cows sold from 200c to 242c to average 231c/kg.
