There were some lesser quality steers on offer, and these went for under 180cents/kg. In the cows there was some very good quality heavy condition cows on offer, 25 head in the over 500kg range.

Bulls in the over 500kg weight range, made 198cents/kg, while lighter weight herd bulls, 300-500kg weight range, made 200cents/kg. Overall, the fat market held up well and prices are similar to other saleyards.

In the store market, there was more competition amongst buyers but the number of cattle on offer was down a bit.

Good quality steers in the 300-400kg weight range got to 248cents/kg, while in the 200-300kg weight range, prices went to a top of 232cents/kg.

Both these lines average around 220cents/kg. In the heifers, demand continues to be limited, with prices getting to a top of 178cents/kg.
