Market Report 22 January

22nd Jan 2019

Cattle-

Yarding– 2370

Numbers decreased at Inverell despite very scattered rainfall through the area. Young cattle again made up the bulk of the numbers, which included some very plain conditioned and light weight cattle in the offering. There were, however, some good quality feeder cattle offered and these showed slight rises through what was a generally a much cheaper market. All processors bar one were present, as were the usual feeder and background orders. Steer and heifer weaners saw cheaper trends of 30c to 40c/kg, attributed mostly to the plainer quality offering. Best quality yearling feeder steers saw dearer trends of 14c, restocker drafts selling to cheaper trends of 20c/kg. Better bred feeder heifers sold to 8c/kg easier. Light conditioned and plainer grade drafts saw a substantial drop in values with prices well under 200c/kg. No grown steers to quote, heifers seeing cheaper trends of 17c/kg. Light cows sold to dearer trends of 15c/kg, with help from limited feeder interest, medium weight cows sold to slightly dearer trends. Heavy D3 and D4 cows also sold to an upward trend of 4c/kg. A larger bull penning saw quality bulls yarded, but also saw a cheaper trend for the heavy bulls of 17c/kg.
