15th Oct 2019

Cattle-

Yarding–  1360

Rain through the market area saw a reduction in numbers, with a good offering of grain assisted heifer yearlings in particular. Conversely, there were still plenty of plainer conditioned young cattle available. Light steers saw dearer trends, although a lack of quality saw the plainer types sell to a cheaper trend. All the regular operators were present, plus the return of an exporter after a protracted absence Light weaner steers saw significant rises from restockers, plainer types selling to a reduction of 19c/kg. Light yearlings saw dearer trends, up 15c/kg, however, medium weights saw cheaper trends. Yearling heifers experienced good gains for most grades, particularly on the grain assisted categories. Light feeders were up 30c, with the trade taking the grain assisted drafts, up to 18c/kg better. Heavy grown heifers sold to 288c/kg. Restocker and feeder orders saw light cows take a substantial rise in trends, 1 scores to 40c better, with the medium 2 score cows to a 20c/kg premium. Medium weight cows to slaughter saw a 24c rise and the heavy cows sold firm, although best cows made to 257c/kg. Heavy bulls saw dearer trends to rise 13c/kg.

There was a reduction in numbers on the sale two weeks ago. There was a good selection of trade lambs and these categories saw firm trends. The well presented heavy drafts saw dearer trends up to $20/head for the extra heavy lambs. Well presented pens of heavier Merino lambs sold to a dearer trend. A lift in quality and weight saw the best hoggets rise $20/head. Light ewes saw rises of $11, with the medium weights up $5/head. Heavy Dorpers sold to a firm trend.
