Market Report – 27 June 2019

Total Yarding: 1001

Cattle numbers eased and the quality was plainer. Weaners were better supplied and there were reasonable numbers of light and medium weight feeder steers and heifers, but there was a much smaller and plainer run of heavy weights. Prime grown steers and heifers were in short supply and nearly half the yarding were cows. On quality, the market sold to a dearer trend.

Weaners to restock lifted 11c/kg on the heifers, while the steers remained firm. Steers sold to 311c and heifers made to 263c/kg. Medium weight feeder steers were firm, making from 260c to 310c and heavy weights reached 296c/kg. Feeder heifers were firm, receiving from 251c to 286c and heavy trade cattle sold from 285c to 300c/kg.

The few prime grown steers received from 278c to 310c and the heavy grown heifers made from 268c to 296c/kg. Medium weight cows were 4c stronger, making from 132c to 194c, while the heavy cows sold from 188c to 250c, with the 4 score cows lifting 12c to average 240c/kg lwt.
