Cows dominate yarding

There were approximately 1750 export and 300 young cattle penned representing an increase of 580 head week on week.
There was a full field of buyers present and competing in a dearer prime sale while the 1000 cows sold to mixed results.
Quality was good in the limited selection of prime while cows made up half of the yarding. Trade cattle lifted 5c to 10c/kg for most.
Grown steers improved 20c to 21c while the bullocks gained 11c to 12c/kg. Heavy weight Friesian and crossbred manufacturing steers kicked 15c to 20c/kg.
Well finished heavy weight cows held firm while the leaner heavy dairy cows slipped 7c/kg. Lighter weight dairy cows sold 3c to 4c dearer while the heavy weight bulls improved 16c/kg.
A handful of well finished vealers reached a top of 346c/kg. Yearling trade steers sold from 330c to 342c/kg. Yearling heifers to the trade made between 298c and 348c/kg.
Grown steers sold between 316c and 358c/kg. Bullocks made from 320c to 353c/kg. Heavy weight Friesian manufacturing steers sold from 262c to 287c with the crossbred portion from 265c to 334c/kg.
