Cattle-

Yarding– 1158

There was a 30% reduction in numbers, with a good selection of yearling cattle and a reduced cow penning. Feeder operators provided strong competition for both steers and heifers. All the regular buyers attended. Limited vealers and yearlings saw cheaper trends of 10c to 14c/kg. Very light yearling steers to feed saw dearer trends of 20c/kg, while the light yearlings bordered on firm trends. Medium weight feeders saw a dearer trend of 6c/kg. Heavy weight feeder steers maintained values to improve by 7c/kg, with two major feed lotters supporting with keen competition. Medium weight heifers to feed showed a firm to slightly cheaper trend. At the other end of the scale, heavy feeder heifers sold to dearer trends of 5c/kg. A lapse in quality saw some restocker and background grades deliver substantially cheaper trends for both steers and heifers. Heavy trade steers and heifers saw slightly cheaper trends of 4c to 6c/kg. Quality grown heifers sold to a dearer trend. Light and medium cows saw feeder competition take values to 206c/kg. The trade category saw prices increase 9c to 14c, while 3 and 4 score cows sold to dearer trends of 6c/kg. An improved bull market saw the better bulls make 9c/kg dearer
