The SELX Prime Cattle sale for the 20th October drew just over 1,000 head, which was up by 300 from the previous week. The market for cows was 10-15 cents cheaper along with bulls, with one exception being a Limousin bull making 280 cents kg and returning over $3,000.00. The export and trade steers and heifers were also easier by 5-10 cents kg, especially for the off types. However restocking Angus steers remained fully firm and under strong competition topped out at 450.2 cents kg. The quality and condition of the stock is improving on a weekly basis.
