Yarding reflects seasonal impacts

There were approximately 1060 export and 180 young cattle penned representing a decrease of 480 head week on week.
The usual buying group was present and competing in a dearer market.
Quality showed seasonal effects with fewer prime cattle and cows making up half of the sale.
A better quality selection of vealers sold 15c/kg dearer. A small number of yearling trade steers sold 20c/kg dearer for better quality. Yearling heifers to the trade gained 10c to 20c/kg.
Grown steers and bullocks recovered all and more of last week’s losses improving 10c to 15c/kg for a more limited offering. Heavy weight Friesian manufacturing steers improved 7c/kg while the crossbred portion held firm.
The cow sale was a little more erratic with averages from firm to 8c/kg dearer. Heavy bulls sold firm.
Vealers suited to butchers sold from 290c to 330c with secondary lots from 262c to 295c/kg. Yearling trade steers made between 276c and 311c/kg. Yearling heifers to the trade sold between 262c and 295c/kg.
