Rain lifts prices in big yarding

By South Gippsland Stock Agents Association
Agents drew for 4000 store cattle which resulted in some producers holding some stock back, but this didn’t deter the buyers as the 3600 head mixed quality yarding that came forward met a very strong market for all types of stock .
The yarding consisted of 2500 steers, 850 heifers and 250 cows and calves, springers and store cows that were consigned from the local area as well as the normal good numbers from East Gippsland.
With some excellent local falls of rain of 25mm to 70mm in the previous days certainly had an impact on the market as all the regular feedlot buyers and local agents and graziers operated strongly, especially on the well bred lines.
Most cattle were firm to $50 dearer across most grades but there were some feature lines of Angus steer weaners which could be a further $100 dearer with rates in the $3.60 to $3.80 bracket that haven’t been seen for some time that were keenly sort by repeat buyers.
