Cattle– 419

Numbers reduced slightly, and quality through the yearling steer offering decline, to eventuate in a cheaper trend for that category. Other classes saw mostly firm to dearer trends. All the regular buyers attended, although there were limited numbers of processors competing. Feeders and restockers were competitive. Steer weaners were in short supply, however demand was quite strong to see firm to slightly dearer trends, with restockers the main competitors. Restockers were also the major force operating on the heifer offering. Yearling steers experienced cheaper price trends through most weight classes, from both feeder and restocker interests. Quantity and quality were major factors in the correction. Conversely the heifer portion received a dearer price trend emerge, from both feeders and restockers dominating through the penning. Steers 500-600kg sold to a dearer trend, while grown heifers experienced significant rises in prices. Medium weight trade cows saw a cheaper price trend of 16c, with the heavy weight cows firm, making to 278c/kg. Bulls made to 282c/kg .
