Total Yarding: 140
A mixed quality much smaller offering of 140 cattle sold to less buyers present but there was spirited competition at times helped by feeders and local restockers. The majority of the yarding consisted of cows from average to very good and a mixed but mostly good selection of bulls. There was also a limited supply of young and grown cattle compared to a fortnight ago.
A couple of vealer pens sold stronger with the light weight vealer heifers selling to 522c and the steer vealers to 574c/kg. The yearling steers sold dearer, yearling heifers and grown cattle sold to equal, heavy cows fluctuated slightly and averaged unchanged to 10c dearer reaching a top of 298c/kg. Leaner and plain lighter cows to restockers were slightly easier although selling mainly from 268c to 346c and up to 370c/kg. Bulls sold to steady competition selling from 5c to 20c/kg dearer.
