Report Date: 17th Aug 2022

Total Yarding: 267

Numbers rose a little at Mount Gambier as agents yarded 267 head of liveweight and open auction cattle. These sold to the usual field of trade and processor buyers along with feeder and restocker activity. The market continues to have a wintry feel about it with the better conditioned lots being sought after to sell to dearer rates while the secondary types were softer this week. Cows continue to make up the bulk of the offering with these seeing strong competition to be up to 30c/kg better in price.

The few yearling steers all went to feed from 455c to 543c with similar heifers making from 422c to 540c as the trade sought some heifers from 500c to 538c, with restockers operating from 454c to 600c/kg. A solitary grown steer went to the trade at 400c with most of these going to feed on from 426c to 522c/kg. Grown heifers were small in number as they returned from 400c to 421c as manufacturing steers made from 380c to 399c/kg.

Heavy cows were a sought after item with the trade competing here as most sold from 368c to 421c with an isolated sale at 442c/kg for younger types. Lighter lots ranged from 325c to 340c with cows to feed on making from 312c to 408c/kg. Heavy bulls made from 230c to 330c with lightweights to feed on reaching 400c/kg.
