Yarding 510
Change -628


Numbers eased by over half as agents yarded 510 head of live weight and open auction cattle. These sold to the usual trade and processor buyers, however competition was limited, with some of these being onlookers and not active across the offering. Quality decreased on the previous sale, with good conditioned cattle to suit the trade proving hard to find, as feeders and restockers were active on the remainder, for what was a mixed sale in price.
Yearling steers to the trade sold from a low of 204c to a high of 330c for B muscled steers, with only two sales over the 300c/kg mark. Yearling heifers to the trade made from 206c to 300c as restockers turned steers back out from 211c to 250c/kg. Feeder steers received from 230c to 264c and feeder heifers sold from 215c to 285c/kg.
Grown steers eased up to 10c, making from 262c to 290c, as grown heifers sold from 163c to 205c and manufacturing steers made to 182c/kg. Cows were small in number as the heavy selection received from 189c to 222c, with the lighter types making from 130c to 195c, as bulls sold from 130c to 200c/kg.
