Market Report – 30 June 2022

Prime Cattle

Total Yarding: 320

Cattle numbers fell and the quality and condition of most of the stock was plain. A highlight was a run of heavy bullocks. Not all the usual buyers were operating and the buyers that were going were selective. Around 100 Cows were penned. The market sold to a much cheaper trend with young cattle dropping 50c and more in places and cow fell 30c to 50c/kg.

The best of a small run of weaner steers reached 600c/kg. Medium and heavy feeder steers ranged from 460c to 554c/kg and heifers 360c to 474c/kg. Trade steers were limited and sold from 460c to 500c/kg.

Grown steers and bullocks over 500kg ranged from 355c to 440c and heavy grown heifers 378c to 398c/kg. Heavy 3 and 4 score cows were best supplied and sold from 260c to 315c and medium weight 2 score cows averaged 255c/kg with the help from restockers.
