Yarding 1009 Change +259

A full winter buying group of export and domestic buyers were at the sale.

Quality was fair to good, with only a limited selection of finished stock suitable for the trade.

The highlight of the sale was the cow market with any type keenly sought in long bidding duels.

The small supply of vealers sold to solid competition.

The bulk of the vealers made from 255 to 346c/kg.

There were insufficient trade steers which distorted price trends.

Trade Heifers and heifers made from 260c to 346c/kg. In the export sale, feedlot competition on younger stock contributed to a robust sale at times.

Heavy steers gained 26c to record a top price 310c/kg. Bullocks sold from 255 to 312c/kg.

A slightly smaller offering of cows pressured buyers to bid strongly to acquire stock. The better finished heavy types of cows were 22 dearer selling from 240c to 292c/kg. Leaner types gained 20c to 40c making from 206c to 230c/kg.

Heavy bulls sold at 230c to 246c/kg.
