Yarding 5746 Change 2123
The yarding mostly included cattle drawn from the local supply area along with numbers from Western Queensland.
Steers and heifers were yarded in similar numbers, and the overall quality of the yarding was improved with increased numbers of younger cattle.
A good buying panel was present with a continued southern and local restocker presence, and all were operating to strong demand especially on quality local lines.
Quality steers and 4 score cows continued to improve, while heifers mostly eased.
