Yarding 3200 Change +900

Rain has had an immediate impact on the Wagga cattle market, in a bigger yarding.

The prospect of good autumn feed leading into winter has invigorated restocker demand in certain weight categories.

Well bred steers 200-280kg sold to restockers, stock agents and commission buyers, with prices ranging from 400-525c/kg.

The main runs of yearling steers to suit lot feeders averaged 387c/kg to be firm to 10c dearer.

But in somewhat of a surprise light weight feeder heifers were firm to 5c easier.

There was a significant price change for heavy steers and bullocks with price jumps of 30c to 40c/kg common.

The bulk of the steers made from 320-390c/kg.

More cows were offered and despite less buyers in the market prices surged ahead 20c to record a top price of 328c/kg.

The bulk of the heavy cows sold from 288c to 326c/kg.

The middle run of leaner types sold from 240-275c/kg.
