A full field of spring buyers were at the rail.

Quality across all classes was fair to good, with increased numbers of grass finished yearling heifers.

The market was significantly cheaper rolling back the market gains of the previous sale. Prices drops of 20c were common with the exception of veal.

The reduced supply of vealers were quite heavy with a fair percentage over 400kg.

The pick of the vealers mostly at the heavier side made from 210c to 326c/kg.

There were very few trade steers while grass finished heifers were in abundance. Trade Heifers sold to erratic bidding and faced a 7c to 35c/kg price drop. The bulk selling from 155c to 215c/kg.

Trade steers sold significantly lower, selling at 190c to 236c/kg. In the export market competition was patchy.

Heavy steers and bullocks on average sold 20c cheaper, with bullocks averaging 214c/kg.

The bigger offering of cows saw prices slip on the back of last week’s dearer market. Heavy cows sold on average 7c cheaper to average 190c/kg. Leaner grades were mostly unchanged to slightly easier and numbers were limited, the bulk selling from 150c to 172c/kg. Heavy bulls sold at varying prices making from 175c to 208c/kg.
