Total Yarding: 428

There were approximately 350 export and 80 young cattle penned representing an increase of 50 head week-on-week. A couple of buyers rejoined the regular group in a cheaper market in places. Quality improved in the grown while the larger offering of veal was mixed and cows represented half of the sale. Vealers sold slightly dearer while yearling heifers suited to the trade eased slightly. Grown steers and bullocks sold firm. A better selection of heavy grown heifers sold dearer in line with quality. The cows were mostly heavy beef cows which eased 20c/kg. Heavy bulls sold firm.

Vealers sold from 530c to 587c/kg. Yearling heifers suited to the trade made between 455c and 482c/kg. Grown steers sold between 446c and 491c/kg. Bullocks sold from 450c to 475c/kg. Heavy grown heifers made between 442c and 466c/kg.

Most light and medium weight cows sold between 210c and 310c/kg. Heavy weight cows made mostly from 284c to 362c/kg. Heavy bulls sold from 322c to 370c/kg.
