    PRIME & STORE CATTLE SALE

    THURSDAY 8th NOVEMBER 2018

    Emerald combined agents offered just over 1800 head, in what could only be described as a mixed quality offering at this week’s sale. Most consignments were drawn from the more immediate area, complimented by one large run of older bullocks from the Nebo area. Whilst there was a strong field of buyers, the variance in quality & presentation would have had some effect on the average prices in most classes.

    Processors whilst well represented, were selective when purchasing. Well finished younger bullocks, best heavy heifers & medium cows remained fully firm. However heavy & plainer cows lost ground & bulls suitable to live export sold well above recent sales to peak at 292c.

    A lessor offering of heavy feeder steers eased marginally. Light weight #7 store steers suitable for feed or backgrounding were well sort after. Small numbers of heavy feeder heifers & the better quality light feeder heifers remained firm, whilst plainer types struggled. Extra buyer support for weaner steers, saw the better lines increase in value, however the smaller or plainer lots meet lack lustre competition. It was a similar story with the weaner heifers, the heavier end remaining close enough to firm, whilst the lighter, plain or smaller lots lost ground for the first time in 3 or 4 weeks. There were no cows & calves offered.
