Yarding 2753 Change -1333
Numbers fell to 2,753 at the Roma Store sale, down by 1,333 head, owing mostly to another short week and rainfall further inland.
Cattle were predominantly drawn from the local supply area, and the overall quality was very good, with steers accounting for half of the yarding. A larger buying panel was present and operating, including all regular processors. The market improved across most steers categories due to the quality yarding and reduced numbers, while heifers fluctuated and cows eased slightly.
