Beef Central, 19/11/2014

NLRS Roma Store Sale market commentary:

Yarding 7300 Change 100

18-11-14 Roma Store

The Roma Landmark Cattle Selling Team in action at Roma’s Store Sale on Tuesday.

Numbers remained close to firm week-on-week for another large offering. The overall condition of the cattle was mixed, as many started to show signs of the dry seasonal conditions, with increased numbers of lighter weight cattle coming forward. Price trends were easier across most categories, with quality a factor. All the regular restocker and feeder buyers were in attendance and operating.

A large yarding of yearling steers saw light weight C2 grades sell to restocker buyers 11c lower, ranging from 180c to 208c, averaging 192c, while the D2 portion returned to the paddock also averaged 11¢ cheaper, making between 88c and 198c/kg.

Medium C3 yearling steers to feed eased from last week, averaging 193c, while heavy weight C3 yearling steers to feeder orders declined 1¢, making from 180c to 205c, averaging 196c/kg. Light weight D2 yearling heifers to restock were 6c lower week-on-week, at 154c, with the D2 portion to feed back 8c on 152c, while medium D3 lines to feed sold 1¢ easier, at 165c/kg.

The cow penning saw light weight D2 grades to restock average dearer than a week ago, ranging between 90c and 156c, while medium weight D3 grades to processors increased 4c, averaging 137c/kg. Bull consignments saw light D2 grades to processors ease 11c week-on-week, selling from 132c to 156c, while the D3 equivalent averaged 137c/kg.
