Report Date: 4th July 2022

Total Yarding: 2078

CQLX vendors penned 2,078 head at the second weaner and feeder sale for 2022. This was considerably less than the number booked due to the wet conditions throughout the area. Condition and quality of the yarding was again very good and competition was strong from restockers mostly as there were very few feeder weight cattle present. The yarding was drawn from all local districts.

As usual Euro cross and British cross steers were most sought after by growers, backgrounders and bullock fatteners. Cross bred weaner steers topped at 680c/kg to average 606c/kg to 644c/kg whilst excellent lighter weight Brahman steers averaged 628c to 658c/kg.

Yearling steers in cross bred pens averaged 555c to 613c/kg with yearling heifers averaging from 418c/kg for brahman types to 560c/kg for the best bred cross cattle.

The few feeder steers sold to averaged 448c to 496c/kg and feeder heifers topped at 488c/kg.
