Cattle– 2351

There were extra numbers at Inverell this sale with cows in the majority, bolstered by good supplies of young cattle, a good number of these supplementary fed. There were also numbers of plainer conditioned cattle and this led to a cheaper selling trend for those categories. All the regular buyers attended and operated, along with good competition for restocker cows selling to the Central West of the state. Early weaned calves sold to dearer trends, heavier better conditioned drafts went over the scales, with many of the very light calves being sold open auction. Plain quality steer weaners saw trends cheaper, up to 40c to restocker competition, conversely the better quality heifer portion saw dearer trends, up by the same margin. Yearling steers to feed and restock also saw a price correction of 8c to 10c/kg. There was no change in the medium weight steers. Trade steers saw a rise in trends of 11c/kg. Light heifers saw a rise in trends of 16c, as well as the medium weights to 24c/kg better. Heavy steers to feed sold to a dearer trend of 16c/kg. Grown heifers saw significant rises, with better quality pens being offered. Light cows to slaughter saw dearer trends of 22c/kg.
