Yarding 5467 Change -133
Cattle were drawn from the usual supply area as producers manage the continuing dry conditions.
A fair buyer panel was operating but not all processors were present. Steers and heifers again dominated the yarding and the quality of the yarding was mixed however competition remained firm for quality lines of cattle presented especially in the feeder range.
Prices mostly rose across the steers while overall heifers fluctuated.
Medium weight lighter condition cows experienced improvements with an increase in restocker competition, while heavy weight cows fell when compared to the previous week. Light weight yearling steers to feed or background rose by 41c/kg. Medium weight yearling steers under 330kg to feed improved by 53c/kg.
