Numbers fell, mostly due to the Melbourne cup day public holiday. Not all processors made it to the market, with quite a few absent.

The smaller group of buyers impacted on competition.

The market struggled to find a base while vealers continued to face a downward swing. In the trade market competition among domestic buyers was erratic. Trade heifers prices firmed as the sale progressed to sell from 155c to 245c/kg. Trade steers sold from 145c to 256c/kg.

Vealer numbers were similar and quality was quite good however, despite this, veal prices slipped 20c to 35c/kg. The bulk of the vealers making from 155c to 280c/kg. Cattle in the export categories, weighed mostly between 500 to 750kg. While only a small group of buyers were present all were selective contributing to a price drop of 18c to 35c/kg. Heavy steers and bullocks sold from 160c to 207c/kg.

A small group of buyers were active at the cow sale and weaker competition for heavy cows, led to a drop in prices of up to 15c/kg. Heavy cows fetched from 145c to 189c/kg, whereas lean plainer grades made 122c to 172c/kg. Bulls fell 11c selling at 160c to 180c/kg. Leann Dax Market Reporter.
