Market Report – 15 December 2023

Special Store Cattle

Total Yarding: 743

A very mixed quality yarding of cattle was offered with better-than-expected prices at the Special Christmas Store Cattle sale.

328 steers sold to a top of $1100, with an average of $763 p/h; 309 heifers sold to $990 p/h and averaged $511 while cows with calves sold to $1560 and averaged $1271 p/h.

Jock Duncombe, Duncombe & Co said “It was noticeable that the better bred and better conditioned lines sold pretty well,

“It was better than expected under current conditions and there was obviously some confidence following recent rain.

“But we did have a few pens of lighter and underdone cattle which were a bit harder to move.”
