Market Report – 6 July 2023

Prime Cattle

Total Yarding: 477

Numbers increased and the rise in numbers were mostly cows with a large run of PTIC cows offered. Weaners and yearlings were limited and there were extra buyers after the lighter and plainer end of the runs. Grown cattle were in similar numbers and there was a bit more breed related price variances. The market sold to a mostly stronger trend.

The weaner steers were firm but the quality was a little plainer, prices reached 332c/kg and a larger offering of heifers resulted in a dearer trend which ranged from 230c to 250c/kg. Feeder steers lifted 20c with the medium and heavy weights selling from 332c to 341c/kg and a limited supply of heifers to feed were firm 240c to 268c/kg. Trade cattle were firm to slightly easier, crossbred cattle started at 210c and heavy steers reached 290c/kg.
