Total Yarding: 42
Emerald vendors penned a reduced number following decent falls of rain in local areas. Most of the yarding came from northern vendors as far away as Lawn Hill. There were several pens of forward conditioned and prime bullocks and cows, however the majority of numbers were a line of light to good store conditioned steers and mickies with the steers HGP treated. Mud rules, and in the rain all cattle improved in value. Sales were to a panel less one major processor, along with the regular feeders and local and travelling restockers.
Light weight yearling steers averaged 284c to top at 297c/kg. Medium weight pens reached 327c/kg to return averages from 265c to 273c/kg to restockers mostly. Yearling heifers were too few in number to quote.
Grown steers to restockers, feeders and livex sold to 295c, averaging 229c to 287c/kg. Bullocks to processors sold from 235c/kg to 265c/kg average. Grown heifers averaged 218c/kg to the trade.
Three and four score cows sold to processors from 221c to 234c/kg. Livex bulls made 214c to 221c/kg. Mickies to restockers averaged 238c/kg.
