Yarding 3419 Change -1487
Steers accounted for over half of the yarding and the majority of cattle were drawn from the usual supply area.
The overall quality of the yarding was mixed with a limited supply of large single vendor lines of cattle yarded.
A good buying panel was present and operating, including all regular processors.
The market remained strong with solid buyer competition on quality cattle across the reduced yarding and price fluctuations were reflective of quality variations.
