Some extra competition, combined with a small improvement in quality and smaller numbers, resulted in light weight yearling steers to restockers or backgrounders averaging 11c to 26c/kg dearer. Medium and heavy weight yearling steers to feed remained within a few cents either way of the previous sale. Light weight yearling heifers to restockers or backgrounders also experienced a lift in price, increasing 13c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed sold to a generally firm market.

Light weight, poor condition lines dominated the cow section and sold to market 10c to 12c/kg cheaper. However, good heavy cows to export slaughter eased over 20c/kg.

Steer calves returning to the paddock made up to 290.2c, to average 277c, while most heifer calves sold around 200c, with some reaching 224.2c/kg.

Light weight yearling steers to restockers averaged 282c and made up to 300.2c, while poor quality lines averaged 247c/kg. Yearling steers in the 280-330kg weight range averaged 285c and made up to 298.2c/kg. Medium weight yearling steers to feed averaged 286c, making up to 294.2c/kg. Heavy weights over 400kg to feed made up to 296.2c and averaged 287c/kg.

The largest numbers of light weight yearling heifers averaged 232c and made up to 252.2c, with the lesser quality lines averaging 191c/kg. Yearling heifers in the 280-330kg weight range made up to 266.2c, with most making approximately 242c/kg.

A relatively small sample of 3 score bullocks topped at 260.2c, with grown heifers reaching 223.2c and averaging 220c/kg. Light weight poor condition cows averaged 122c and made up to 132c/kg. Medium weight, 2 score cows to processors averaged 178c, with the best of the medium weights averaging 205c/kg. Good heavy cows made up to 213.2c, with most receiving approximately 209c/kg.

Heavy bulls made up to 247.2c, to average 240c/kg. Some very light weight bull calves, showing the effects off the season, sold to restockers at an average of 250c, with some reaching 282.2c/kg.
