Beef Central, April 30, 2019

Yarding 4263 Change 1985

Large runs of quality young cattle were yarded and a larger panel of buyers was present, however not all were operating.

Prices improved off the back of feedlot and restocker competition.

Medium weight yearling steers dominated the yarding.

Prices mostly increased for quality steers and heifers after good recent rainfall in the supply area that has seen a marked reduction in numbers yarded in the last fortnight.

Light weight yearling steers under 280kg to restockers sold 17c/kg dearer. Medium weight yearling steers under 330kg to feed were 21c/kg more. Medium weight yearling steers under 400kg to feed increased by 33c/kg.
