Yarding 2815 Change 62
Numbers held steady at 2,815 at the Roma Store with the smaller yarding attributed to the widespread rain across the supply area. Cattle were drawn from a wide supply area, with limited numbers of local cattle yarded, and the overall quality varied. A smaller buying panel was present and operating, including all regular processors. Overall the market varied with price fluctuations reflective of quality variations, however restocker competition remained strong on quality lines of light weight steers which saw top end prices improve but overall averages ease in places, while processor competition improved for cows. Medium weight feeder steers rose by 1c to 12c, while heavy feeders fell by 6c/kg. Heifers mostly eased with medium weight heifers to feed down by 32c/kg. Cows experienced gains with heavy weight prime cows up by 9c/kg.
