by Beef Central, 08 August 2018

Yarding 4528 Change -572

Cattle came from a vast area including far western districts, including some from NSW.

The overall quality was not up to the standard of the previous week. Prices eased for most classes of yearling steers by 2c to 10c/kg, with some of the losses related to the quality penned.

Apart from top end quality lines of light weight yearling heifers receiving fair demand, most sold to a cheaper trend with decreases of 20c/kg.

The better end of the cows generally received only quality related price changes, while the plain condition classes experienced a small turn around in price. Steer calves returning to the paddock made to 288c to average 279c, while most heifer calves sold around 183c, with some reaching 198.2c/kg. Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock averaged 280c and made to 292.2c/kg. Yearling steers in the 280-330kg range averaged 270c and made to 286.2c/kg. Medium weight yearling steers to feed averaged close to 276c and made to 290c/kg. Most heavy weight yearling steers over 400kg, going to feed, sold around 279c, with some to 288.2c/kg. The largest numbers of light weight yearling heifers averaged 212c, with occasional sales of 236.2c, with poor quality lines making approximately 160c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 246c and made to 250c/kg. Light weight poor condition cows averaged 128c and made to 144.2c/kg. Medium weight 2 score cows averaged 165c and the best of the medium weights averaged 192c/kg. Good heavy cows made to 210c to average 205c/kg. Heavy bulls made to 241.2c/kg.
