Just short of 600 cattle were yarded at SELX today, with improved quality evident as we hit good spring feed. Heavy cows were 2-8c cheaper, with better quality less affected. Heavy Angus Cows topping at $2014.00. Kill Steers 500kg plus topped at $2030 and were 4-8c cheaper but still sold to solid demand. Heavy kill Heifers with shape and cover were firm with Heifers lacking shape up to 15c cheaper. Feeder Steers were 5-12c cheaper with very good quality less affected, cattle showed better weights as they benefit from spring feed. Feeder Heifers 8-14c cheaper and as above, better quality showing less change. Weaner cattle still sold to extremely strong competition as farmers try to maximise their spring feed.
