Yarding 5072 Change -340
Cattle were drawn from the usual supply area, and the overall quality varied in a yarding again dominated by steers with good numbers of heavy bullocks yarded, along with several lines of quality young steers and heifers.
There was a good buying panel present and all were operating.
The market continued to be quality driven with prices and competition remaining strong for quality lines.
Prices fluctuated across the yarding, with an overall improvement for most steer categories, while heifers mostly eased from the previous week.
