Cooler conditions with a sprinkling of rain was welcomed by all after last week’s heat wave. Numbers eased by over 200 with 1000 cattle coming forward this week. Every week quality is very mixed with the gap widening between the better types and the plainer types, resulting in mixed price trends.

HEAVY STEERS & BULLOCKS:   Drafted & Presented by Auctioneer Andrew Whan and Scott Miller.   

A very mixed run of heavy steers and bullocks this week, without the very top end quality of last week. Some very mixed results, with some sales very firm on last week but the off type steers (which there were more) selling at much cheaper rates.

YOUNG CATTLE:   Drafted & Presented by Auctioneer Andrew Whan and Liam Durcan.  

Quality was harder to find in the young cattle this week, with many more off bred types coming forward. Trade buyers were keen for cattle with good fat cover and yield. This saw the better heifers fully firm to dearer, while the trade steers lacked last weeks quality and suited feedlots or re-stockers. Heavy heifers over 500kg 222-265c per kg, trade heifers 238-273c per kg, yearling steers 248-295c per kg. A few more vealers were yarded this week with steers up to 275c per kg and heifers 270c per kg.
