Market Report 11 September

11th Sep 2018

Cattle– 755

Inverell numbers were similar to last week, with good rainfall throughout the district. There were good numbers of young cattle, and similar numbers of young calves taken off cows, as the previous week. These were offered on a dollar per head basis, making from $150 to $185/head. Limited numbers of supplementary fed yearlings were also offered, and the cow offering reduced by 50%. The usual processors and feeder operators were present, and there was good competition from restockers purchasing drafts of the younger lighter offering of yearlings and young calves. Late weaners saw a substantially increased trend, with younger heifers experiencing increases of 6c to 18c/kg. Some very well finished supplementary fed yearling heifers saw dearer trends of 5c/kg, which were purchased by the trade. However, there were older heavier heifers that sold to cheaper trends of 13c/kg. Yearling steers sold dearer, up to 32c/kg in places due to restocker interest. Once again, the heavier portion saw quality related reductions in value. There were no reliable quotes for older steers and heifers due to quality and lack of numbers. Quality in the light cow offering saw mostly cheaper trends in that category. However, there were several pens of heavy high yielding cows, which saw dearer trends of 7c to 11c/kg. A better quality bull penning saw those grades making slightly dearer
