Total Yarding: 200
Numbers reduced this week as agents offered 170 liveweight and open auction cattle and 35 open auction calves. Quality was extremely mixed and this witnessed an erratic result under a sale that lacked the enthusiasm of recent weeks. For type and condition prices remained generally firm with yearling steers from the North East pastoral area gaining solid support to sell from 530c to 602c/kg.
Vealer steers sold from 612c to 652c with the best of the vealer heifers peaking at 632c/kg. Pastoral yearling steers sold from 458c to 600c with the bulk of the local seers selling from 530c to 602c as yearling heifers ranged from 500c to 560c/kg. Grown heifers sold to 556c as cows ranged from 280c to 300c/kg.
Yearling bulls sold from 404c to 480c with heavy bulls to the trade selling from 220c to 352c/kg.
