Yarding 1600 Change -4040
Some good falls of rain across the supply area caused numbers to fall to 1600 head of cattle at Roma this week.
Quality was mixed with mostly local cattle penned alongside one large consignment of high content heifers from NSW.
Despite additional orders from Western Queensland prices remained firm on last week. A smaller yarding of prime cattle also saw similar prices.
Light weight restockers steers were slightly better with sales to 538.2c to average 480c while restocker steers 280 to 330kg eased, selling to 514.2c to average 449c/kg.
Restockers paid up to 486.2c for steers 330 to 400kg with most around 411c, while feeders averaged 385c/kg.
There were too few heavy feeder steers to reliably quote. A pen of very good quality light weight restockers heifers to join sold to 468.2c with most around 354c, up 14c.
A large run of high content heifers sold to 312.2c and feeders paid up to 350.2c for heifers 330 to 400kg to average 332c/kg.
