Market Report – 15 June 2023

Prime Cattle

Total Yarding: 417

Numbers rose and the quality was better but there was not the consistent lines of cattle to ignite buyers interests. Yearlings made up the bulk of the offering and all the heifers and most of the steers went to feed. There were just a few trade steers and grown steers and bullocks. Around 70 cows were offered. The market sold to dearer trends with the exception of plain light cows on the back of increased numbers and better quality.

Medium weight heifers reached 274c and the better supplied heavy weights 250c to 300c/kg. Only a few trade steers were penned and lifted 10c ranged from 290c to 300c/kg.
