Yarding 7193 Change 2657
Cattle were mostly drawn from the local supply area but the yarding also included cattle from western Queensland.
The overall quality of the yarding was varied, reflective of the widespread dry season.
A good buyer panel was present however not all processors were operating. Steers continue to dominate the yarding.
Prices mostly eased across the yarding however quality lines continued to sell to firm demand in isolated patches.
