Beef Central, August 7, 2019

Elders Roma team in action selling a pen of Angus cross heifers at yesterday’s Store Sale.

Yarding 6282 Change 1865

Cattle were drawn from a wide supply area, and steers continued to dominate the yarding.

There was a notable absence of large single vendor lines.

A good panel of buyers was present and operating with the continued presence of interstate operators.

The overall quality of the yarding was more varied than past weeks as the dry season continues.

Feedlot and restocker competition remained firm for quality lines but prices fell for the lesser quality lines.
