Roma NLRS report commentary:

Yarding 4650, Change 1225

It was a very mixed quality yarding of cattle. The number of feedlot buyers in attendance lifted and, as a result, medium and heavy feeder weight steers gained 2c to 9c/kg. There was an even split between good quality light weight yearling steers and plainer weaners. The majority of light weight yearling heifers returned to the paddock, while medium feeder weight yearling heifers jumped 6c/kg. Cows and calves sold to $500/unit.

Light weight yearling steers sold to 178c and averaged 170c, up 5c, while D muscled lines averaged around 149c to be up 1c/kg. Medium weight yearling steers to feed topped at 184c and averaged 171c, up 9c, while those returning to the paddock hit 178c and averaged 169c/kg. Heavy weight yearling steers to feed reached 185c and averaged 171c, up 2c/kg. Light weight yearling heifers made to 154c and averaged 135c, up 3c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed reached 151c and averaged 145c, up 6c, while a small sample purchased by restocker buyers hit 152c, up 18c/kg.

Most store conditioned 2 score cows sold between 68c and 92c, up 7c, while heavy weight 4 score cows sold around 140c, down 3c/kg.
