Cattle– 722

Numbers reduced by a third to offer a fair quality penning. Cow numbers increased slightly, young cattle to a lesser extent. Through that category had drafts of plainer cattle on offer, these had a bearing on some averages. Two exporters were absent, otherwise most of the regular buying panel attended. Limited weaners were penned results saw much dearer trends, particularly through the steer penning. There was a substantial rise through that category and a healthy rise in the heifer offering. Light weight steers and heifers to background also sold to significant rises. Feeder steers saw cheaper trends owing to a decline in quality, this downward price change went through all feeder steer drafts. Conversely feeder heifers experienced a healthy rise in price. Heavy grown steers sold to mostly solid trends, some of the very heavy drafts sold to a cheaper market. Similar heifers were in a minority and posted cheaper trends. With the absence of two exporters, cows bore the brunt of the downturn. A change of 20c to 30c/kg was felt, particularly with cows showing an excess of fat cover. Light weight bulls back to the paddock to feed on sold to a rise of 10c/kg. Heavy weight bulls were cheaper to make to 320c/kg.
