Market Report 10 March 2020

10th Mar 2020

Cattle–  916

Numbers increased slightly with a mixed quality penning, and with a good selection of supplement fed cattle, including cows. Most categories experienced cheaper price trends throughout, due to a reduction in quality from last sale. There was softer feeder competition, however there was strong demand on light weight restocker cows. Not all processors were present, and the result for slaughter cows was cheaper. Vealer steers and heifers saw solid competition from restock interest, to improve in price by 9c to 20c/kg. However light weight feeder steers experienced cheaper trends due to a reduction in quality, and eased in price by 17c/kg. Steers to the restockers also lost ground to ease in price by 12c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers sold to dearer trends, to improve by up 15c/kg. Plain conditioned heifers saw significant falls in price, and the medium weight feeders were the least affected to be 5c/kg cheaper. Grown heifers to processors sold to a dearer trend of 11c/kg. Light weight cows to restockers experienced strong demand to gain up to 10c/kg. However demand fell on the medium weights to processors, to ease by 7c/kg. The heavy D2 and D3 cows to processors eased in price by 2c to 5c/kg. The better bulls were dearer, to gain up 6c/kg.
