Report Date: 14th July 2022

Total Yarding: 1152

Agents yarded a slightly smaller number of 1,152 cattle at the monthly Powranna Store sale on Thursday with the majority being weaners and yearlings with some cows at the end of the sale. The quality of the cattle was generally good for the middle of winter and well bred weaners sold to strong local competition while secondary cattle met a mixed market. There was no interstate competition and more cattle were bought by Northwest coast finishers than in the previous few sales.

The heavy steer weaners (330 + kg) made $1,460 to $2,160 (av. 480c/kg liveweight), medium (280-330 kg) made $1,500 to $1,980 (600c/kg) and lighter $1,100 to $1.620 (640c/kg). Medium heifer weaners made $1,240 to $1,400 (450c/kg), light $1,020 to $1,400 (480c/kg) and very small $620 to $820/head.

The heaviest yearling steers (400 +) made $1,620 to $2,300 and medium weights $2,000 to $2,140/head. The heaviest yearling heifers made $1,980 to $2,340 and medium $1,300 to $1,620/head.
