Total Yarding: 421
A reduced offering of mixed quality cattle at Yass this week. There were some very good weaners that returned to the paddock and only a limited supply of yearlings and grown steers. Grown heifers and cows made up a third of the penning. Not all the usual buyers attended the sale, with most of the young cattle selling 15c to 20c/kg cheaper and a few feedlot orders not operating at full speed. Heavy grown heifers and cows were 10c to 15c/kg dearer.
Weaner steers sold from 538c to 563c and the vealers made from 480c to 509c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers ranged from 442c to 490c and heavy weights made from 410c to 470c/kg. Feeder heifers sold from 440c to 470c while heavy trade steers were 5c softer, making from 450c to 484c/kg.
The best of the grown steers reached 426c and heavy grown heifers sold 8c to 16c better, making from 335c to 395c/kg. Most cows gained with heavy score 3 and 4 cows making from 300c to 339c/kg. A run of cow and calf units sold from $2,800 to $3,125/unit.
