Roma Store Sale NLRS comment:

Yarding 5900, Change -200

It was a mixed yarding of store steers and good quality lines of light and medium weight yearling heifers penned. Overall, the light weight steers gained back the price declines of the previous week, while light weight heifers were firm to dearer in price. A few pens of light weight yearling steers were sold into northern NSW regions and good numbers of light weight yearling heifers were sold to southern livestock producers. Mixed quality medium and heavy weight yearling steers resulted in cheaper average prices. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed sold well, but plainer sorts experienced more selective demand from feedlot  buyers. Cows and calves sold to $570/unit.
