Numbers lifted and the quality improved slightly. Yearlings were best supplied and most went to feeder or restocker orders. Trade vealers were limited as were prime grown steers. Only 50 cows were penned and there was a good run of heavy weights. The market was cheaper.

Heifers to feed sold between 255c and 286c/kg. Restocker yearling steers reached 309c/kg. Medium and heavy trade steers received 260c to 306c and heifers 240c to 288c/kg.
Grown steers eased 9c on a very small number of penned cattle and ranged from 255c to 274c/kg. Heavy grown heifers to the trade made from 228c to 245c/kg.
