Total Yarding: 877

There was a slight increase in numbers and the quality was very good including good lines of yearling steers to suit feedlot buyers, along with some prime yearlings to suit the processors. There were a few good lines of prime vealers and some well-bred weaners returning to the paddock. Grown cattle were in limited supply and there were some good runs of heavy cows. All the usual buyers were operating with prices fluctuating depending on quality.

Yearling steers suiting the trade were cheaper overall, despite reaching 600c to average 578c/kg. Heavy yearling heifers to process were up to 11c/kg dearer making from 490c to 588c/kg. Lighter feeder steers were dearer and those over 400kg were price unchanged selling from 460c to 625c/kg. Feeder heifers were firm to a few cents easier ranging from 480c to 540c/kg. Weaner steers returning to the paddock were cheaper ranging from 530c to 702c/kg with the heifer portion back 10c/kg making from 520c to 696c/kg.

Heavy grown steers were cheaper, quality related, selling from 395c to 460c/kg and grown heifers were back 8c/kg ranging from 360c to 440c/kg. Plainer conditioned cows to process eased 2c/kg to average 277c and the heavy 3 and 4 score cows lifted 5c making from 320c to 363c/kg. The best heavy weight bull reached 320c/kg.
