Market Report 22 September 2020

22nd Sep 2020

Cattle–  267

Numbers decreased by almost half to see all categories reduced with the exception of bulls which increased to 40 head. There was a good selection of well bred, forward conditioned yearling steers suitable to both processors and feeder operators. All the regular operators attended along with the return of a major exporter. Light steers to background and feed sold to significantly dearer trends as did the heifer portion with prices rising 16 to 18c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers sold to an easier trend, lack of numbers a factor. Conversely the heavy drafts, many grain and crop assisted sold to dearer trends of up to 9c/kg. Limited numbers of feeder heifers resulted in a cheaper trend, easing 25c/kg in places. Isolated sales of medium weight trade heifers improved as much as 25c/kg. Grown steers sold to a cheaper trend while the heifer drafts sold to improved values, up 22c/kg. Medium weight cows were dearer selling to rises of 11c/kg. Well presented pens of heavy cows saw a slight easing in the market, back 7c/kg. A large bull offering saw that category sell to much improved values up 17c/kg.
