23rd Jun 2020

Cattle– 826

There was a slight increase in the offering with cows in the majority and a noticeable improvement in quality for that category, with many high yielding cows coming off crop. The regular processors were at the rail as well as feeder and background competition. Weaner steers saw increased competition, trends up 11c to 15c/kg to backgrounder interest. Conversely, weaner heifers saw a cheaper trend, quality factoring into the reduction. Light yearling steers declined slightly by 4c, as did the medium weight steers, slipping 9c/kg. Light backgrounder steers sold to a cheaper trend, dropping 12c/kg. Light feeder heifers saw a slightly dearer trend of 5c, with light trade heifers secured a significant rise, up 27c/kg. Heavy grown trade steers enjoyed good rises , selling to 374c/kg. A lift in quality for grown trade heifers saw rises of 13 to 20c/kg. Light cows sold strongly, medium weights, up 13c/kg. Heavy D3 cows sold strongly, seeing rises of 5 to 7c/kg. Medium weight bulls were firm, heavy bulls selling to a correction of 15c/kg.
