    PRIME & STORE CATTLE SALE

    THURSDAY 17th May 2018

    Combined agents offered just over 2200 head at Emerald today, in what can only be described as a much more buoyant market, when compared to our last sale a fortnight ago. Consignments were drawn from Gayndah, Longreach, Richmond, Alpha, Clermont and the immediate area.

    Quality & presentation whilst somewhat mixed, was for the most part of a reasonable to high standard. However, there was a large percentage of lighter or store condition cattle offered, in particular among the yearling & weaner categories. Hence heifers & steers under 350kg & a large run of cows represented the bulk of the numbers.

    All processors were operating & competing at a much higher level. Feedlot operators struggled for numbers. It was pleasing to see renewed vigour from the restocker fraternity, both locally and further afield, including buyer support from Biloela, Rockhampton & Rolleston. As a result, prices for store cattle improved across the board, weaner & yearling steers showing the best gains.

    Slaughter; Limited numbers of Bullocks sold to 250c to a/v 247c. Heavy cows reached 209c to a/v 195c up 26c. Medium cows sold to 198c to a/v 188c plus 28c. Cows 400 to 450 kg made to 205c to a/v 173c. Heavy heifers were too few to quote and Heavy bulls made to 258c to a/v 240c.

    Feeder; Heavy feeder steers 400-500kg and Steers 350 to 400kg were too few to quote. Feeder Heifers sold to 238c to a/v 229c a gain of 23c.

    Yearlings & weaners; Steers 280-350kg sold to 302c to a/v 277c. Heifers 280-350kg sold to 263c to a/v 231c. Steers 200-280kg reached 305c to a/v 279c. Weaner steers under 200kg topped at 332c to a/v 305c an increase of 54c. Heifers 200-280kg made 242c to a/v 223c & Weaner Heifers under 200kg peaked at 249c to a/v 233c.

    2 cows & calves sold for $1,100.
