Total Yarding: 140
Another very small yarding amid wet weather and the low prices on offer. Just 140 cattle were yarded, with few lines available to generate reliable price trends for most categories. Not all the usual buyers were in attendance.
There was a quality run of nicely shaped Limousin vealer steers and heifers which sold to local domestic orders at 330c to a top of 392c/kg lwt. Plainer young calves down to 230c/kg. Fed yearling type steers with more weight sold to 372c/kg lwt. There was more heifers than steers in the yarding and most of the heavier types sold for less than 300c at 240c to 294c/kg, with only a few higher yielding animals higher.
The export run was very limited. A few beef cows to 230c/kg.
