Market Report 26 February

26th Feb 2019

Cattle– 2891

Numbers at Inverell increased for the young cattle offering, while reducing their cow numbers. The yarding for the most part remained plain in condition and quality, with the exception of a limited number of trade milk calves sold in one pen, their dams in another. All the regular buyers were present to compete in a primarily cheaper market. With one exception of a show steer purchase reaching 360c, weaners saw cheaper trends of 17c, with restockers adjusting their prices by 13c to 16c/kg. Quality related price changes saw light yearling steers sell to cheaper trends to restockers, while medium weight steers sold to cheaper trends of 18c/kg. Heavy feeders saw dearer trends of 13c/kg, with a lift in quality and condition the factor. There were drafts of light, plain quality steers that made from 98c to 102c/kg. Light heifers to feed saw decreases of 16c/kg. Better quality medium weight heifers experienced dearer trends. Again, there were no numbers of grown steers and heifers to quote. Restocker interest in light 1 score cows was competitive, seeing prices rise up to 6c/kg. Light trade cows also saw dearer trends up to 18c/kg. Conversely, medium weight cows saw slightly cheaper trends of 4c/kg. Heavy cows saw some price corrections of 6c, with the best D4 cows reaching 219c/kg. Another heavy bull penning saw a rise in that market of 25c/kg for the heavy bulls.
