Market Report – 20 June 2019

Total Yarding: 1,196

Numbers were steady and the quality improved. Weaners were better supplied and there was a better run of yearlings with more that suited the butchers. There was added restocking interest on the medium weight yearling steers. Grown steers were very limited and around 230 cows were offered. Light weaners had little competition while the better quality attracted dearer prices.
