HEAVY STEERS & BULLOCKS:    Drafted & Presented by Auctioneer Andrew Whan & Liam Durcan.

Yearling steers 256-280c per kg with both the trade and feedlotters active. Trade heifers were 2-5c dearer 240-265c kg. Very few vealers were penned with just isolated sales.

SHEEP AND LAMBS:   Drafted & Presented by Auctioneer Scott Miller and Liam Durcan.

712 sheep sold 535 less than last week. With the very small run of lambs and mixed sheep some buyers weren’t active due to the limited opportunities. One export order was operating and purchased lambs from $140 to $165 being $4 to $6 cheaper. The few pens of killable lambs sold from $110 to $130 for 18 to 22kg types. Store lambs spiked from $75 to $92 being $3 to $4 dearer. Heavy cross bred ewes sold well from $75 to $95.

Quotations:  A/c DW & JM Searle 12 trade lambs $118.


A much larger than advertised yarding of over 2300 cattle came forward. A good quality run of weaner steers were offered and these sold to strong demand from both local re4stockers and feedlots and live export competition to $20-$40 above expectations. The heifer sale did not match the steer sale, with competition lacking at times, to see heifers finish $50-$60 per head back on last month. A feature of the cows was a Hereford dispersal of Autumn calving cows making $1400 -$1620.

Quotations:  The annual draft of Patanga SHN Steers were outstanding and these met strong competition. 20 at $1240.00 , 43 at $1180.00 and 25 at $1110.00. A/c MJ & HJ Ruwoldt’s Ang Steer weaners $1120.00. A/c RK & SM Johnson’s Poll Her Steers $1060.00 and BB Steers $960.00. A/c Kent Props offered Speckle Park heifers which created strong interest 16 at $1200 weighed 325kg.
