Yarding 2809 Change -2171
Another rain affected yarding saw numbers fall to 2,809 head at the Roma Store sale. The yarding was very mixed in quality with reduced numbers of local cattle. A good buying panel was present and operating including all regular processors. Steers accounted for over half of the yarding. Competition remained strong for quality cattle, again reflected in the increasing top end prices for light and medium weight steers with price fluctuations reflective of quality variations. Light weight steers to restockers improved by 35c to 36c, and medium weight steers to restockers improved by 11c to 43c/kg. Heavy weight steers to feed eased by 7c/kg. Light weight heifers under 280kg to restockers fell by 20c, however medium weight heifers under 330kg to restockers improved by 42c/kg. Prime cows held firm from the previous week.
