CATTLE were drawn from the usual supply area.

This week saw a larger number of vendors represented, with limited large single vendors lines yarded in the steers, however several quality single vendor lines of heifers were present. The overall quality of the yarding was good, with prices reflective of any quality variations.

A good buying panel, with new southern buyers and all regular processors, was operating to firm competition.
