Market Report – 14 October 2021

Total Yarding:  438

Numbers eased and the quality was good but there were more breed variances through the sale. Only a few weaners were offered and all of these went to feed. Medium and heavy feeder steers were well supplied and there was a better and bigger line up of heifers. Heavy trade steers were limited and there was a good run of heavy bullocks. Around 75 cows were penned in a firm to dearer market.

The weaners to feed on sold from 600c to 703c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers were firm and heavy weights 8c dearer and sold from 498c to 584c/kg. Feeder heifers jumped 20c with most 516c to 580c and lighter weights 590c to 670c/kg. Heavy trade steers ranged from 544c to 560c/kg.

Grown steers and bullocks were firm 428c to 472c and grown heifers were 30c stronger 415c to 470c/kg but it was a lighter run. Most of the cows were heavy 3 and 4 score cows and sold up to 9c dearer on average to range from 370c to 420c/kg.
