Report Date: 11th May 2022

Total Yarding: 2338

Good falls of rain across the general supply area reduced the number of stock by 1,194 head to 2,338 at Dalby. Cattle continued to be drawn from a wide area with 748 head from far Western Queensland, 266 from New South Wales, and 104 from South Australia, with the remaining 1,220 head from the local supply area. All the regular export processors were in attendance and operating, plus a good lineup of trade and feeder operators and restockers. Prices generally improved across a number of classes with medium and heavy weight yearling steers to feed gaining 26c to 28c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 30c/kg better. All classes of cows experienced a stronger market with export processor lines 6c to 11c/kg dearer. However cows returning to the paddock improved in price by over 30c/kg.

Heavy weight yearling steers to feed made to the occasional 604c with a large sample averaging 546c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 472c and made to 534c/kg.

A handful of bullocks made to 430c/kg. Medium weight plain condition cows returning to the paddock made to 376c to average 356c/kg. Good heavy weight cows to export processors made to 383c with a large sample averaging 376c/kg.
