Glenburnie Market Report 11/07/2018

The cattle market has relied on the back of heavy rain throughout the last week. All trade and export buyers operated in a dearer market. Feedlotters put a floor across the steer and young cattle market with lifts of up to 15 cents. The most positive trend was a solid price lift for cows with heavy beef cows lifting up 7 to 12 cents and light chopper cows a good 5 cents. Miller Whan and John recommend the selling of non-producing cows and current market prices.
