Market Report 3 November 2020

3rd Nov 2020

Cattle–  782

Numbers were down slightly this week, with Inverell agents yarding 782 head of cattle. The yarding consisted of a good supply of yearlings, and there was a good penning of cows. The yarding of young cattle consisted mainly of yearlings, with both steers and heifers well represented. Quality was good with several runs of outstanding well bred and conditioned yearlings that were suitable for feeder buyers, however there was a few pens of plainer quality cattle through the sale this week. Competition was stronger again this week with extra buyers entering the market. As a result of the increased competition feeder steers were 10c to 15c dearer selling from 382c to a top price of 459c while restockers paid up to 508c/kg. Feeder heifers made the greatest gain to sell from 20c to 30c dearer, ranging from 380c to 446c/kg for light feeders. The few trade heifers topped at 426c/kg. The yarding of export cattle consisted of a small offering of grown steers, while there was a fair penning of heifers and a good yarding of cows. Quality was good with the largest percentage of heifers and cows being heavy high yielding cattle. The odd grown steer sold to a top of 393c to be up by 10c, while heifers gained from 10c to 20c selling from 320c to 385c/kg. The cow market saw medium weights average 299c while heavy cows were 11c dearer selling to 327c/kg. There was another good offering of heavy bulls with a top price of 348c/kg.
