Cattle– 850

Inverell Agents yarded a few less cattle this week, for a total of 850 which was a reduction of 280 head. The yarding consisted of a good supply of yearlings, while there were a few less cows. The yarding of young cattle consisted of a good supply of both yearling steers and heifers in good 2 and 3 score condition, with a large percentage in the medium weight and heavy weight ranges. Competition continued to be very keen from both feeders and background buyers, resulting in prices improving on last weeks sale. The yarding of the export cattle consisted of a fair number of cows, although not the numbers of last week, while there was a few pens of grown steers and heifers in fair numbers. Quality was good with mainly high yielding cattle offered. Feeder and restocker yearling steers were 13c to 18c dearer ranging from 360c to 433c for heavy feeder steers, while light restocker yearling steers sold to a top of 519c/kg. Feeder and restocker yearling heifers gained 15c to 20c with feeder heifers selling from 356c to 408c while light restocker yearling heifers topped at 464c/kg. Grown steers held firm selling to a top price of 364c to process and up to 408c/kg to feed. Grown heifers sold to a top price of 362c/kg. The cow market was firm to 4c dearer with 3 score medium weights averaging 297c, while heavy cows sold to a top price of 317.2c/kg. Bulls were slightly easier with heavy B muscled bulls selling to a top of 337.2c/kg.
