Market Report 19 May 2020

19th May 2020

Cattle–  618

Numbers lifted and quality improved, with a very good selection of heavy cows and young cattle offering a significant increase in both numbers and quality. Demand was strong through all classes, an extra processor vying for product, as did restockers and feeders through the young cattle. Restockers competed strongly for steer weaners, up to 40c in places, similarly for the heifer drafts, that category rising 20c/kg on average. Light yearling steers to feed saw a dearer trend with a sharp rise in quality. Medium weight steers to feed experienced significant rises, selling to 424c/kg. The heifer offering also saw a rise in trends. Light heifers to the restockers sold to 399c/kg. Medium weight feed heifers saw good rises, up 15c/kg. Quality in the grown trade steer drafts lifted to see the top steers average at 330c, up 25c/kg. The demand for heavy feeders took that category to 375c/kg. Grown heifers were firm. Cows saw a substantial rise in trends, mostly with the advent of an extra operator. Medium weights saw a rise of 20c, the heavy D3 and D4 cows, up 30c to 40c, selling to 314c/kg.
