Finished cattle hard to find

There were approximately 1080 export and 100 young cattle penned representing a decrease of 270 head week on week.
There was a full field of buyers present and operating in a mixed market as last sales absentee returned to the gallery.
Quality was good in the grown steers and bullocks however it was more limited in the young cattle and any level of finish was very hard to find in the cows.
Yearling heifers to the trade sold a few cents easier for the medium weights and 8c/kg dearer for the heavy weights although the best quality was not up to last week’s standard.
Grown steers and bullocks sold 8c to 9c/kg dearer for most with the better end of the grown steers a little easier.
There were very few beef cows in the cow draft with prices slipping 5c to 10c/kg for all but a sprinkling of well covered beef cows. Heavy weight bulls sold firm.
Yearling heifers to the trade sold from 330c to 360c/kg.
Grown steers made between 343c to 365c/kg. Bullocks sold between 354c and 370c/kg. A limited selection of well covered heavy weight grown heifers made from 315c to 330c/kg. Heavy weight crossbred manufacturing steers sold from 301c to 348c/kg.
Most light and medium weight cows made between 190c and 242c/kg. Heavy weight cows sold mostly between 238c and 288c/kg.
Heavy weight bulls made from 270c to 330c/kg.
