Commentary

Off the back of a strong market last week, cattle numbers remained on parr, buyer attendance was above the norm, however prices failed to hold their momentum and took tumbles of 20c to 40c/kg across numerous categories. The quality of the trade cattle offering was very plain, with a greater proportion of light weighted vealers and store conditioned and crossy yearlings.

The vealers had a wide ranging price variation. Very few supplementary fed or heavy well shaped vealers were offered. The vealers ranged from 270c to 377c/kg. The yearling steers made from 260c to 367c/kg, while the yearling heifers made from 240c to 320c/kg. Restockers and feedlotters were active across the yard.

Additional exporters provided heavy cattle some buffer however prices still saw a 20c to 30c/kg slide. There were a few good pens of steers on offer and a lot of mixed quality lots. The 400 to 500kg steers ranged from 285c to 312c/kg. The 500 to 600kg steers made from 271c to 344c/kg, while the 600kg plus bullocks made from 253c to a top of 344c/kg for some B muscled Limousin steers. The Friesian steers made from 215c to 234c/kg. The beef cows made from 210c to 261c/kg to average 246c/kg. The dairy cows ranged from 174c to 233c/kg.
