Cattle– 2740

Inverell numbers increased significantly with young heifers penning almost one thousand, with a good selection of cows. An improvement in weight and quality saw grown and yearling heifers move to dearer trends. All the regular buyers attended, along with a return of the Southern to operate on all categories. Weaner steers saw a 10c/kg reduction, while the heifer portion sold on a firm basis. Medium yearling steers saw falls of 11c, heavy feeders topped at 324c to average 299c/kg and firm. Light heifers to restock were 14c better, with the odd sale of medium weight heifers 20c/kg better. Southern competition saw a mix of cattle purchased, including plainer conditioned weaners, yearlings and restocker cows. Limited drafts of heavy steers sold to 274c/kg, while heavy feeder heifers saw dearer trends. Cows were mostly cheaper with D1 and D2 cows back 15c/kg. Medium weight cows saw falls of 20c and the D3 and D4 cows back 12c/kg. Bulls sold to 300c to average 267c/kg and substantially dearer.
