July 24. Yarding: 1039. Change: down 138.
Quality was very mixed in the reduced sized penning of 1039 cattle that were offered to a mainly regular following of buyers.
Demand was best for the better finished cattle in all categories, with their prices equal to last week.
Once off these better cattle, prices eased by a general 2c to 8c/kg.
The only dearer cattle were restocking heifers and the few good quality, heavy weight beef bulls that were up to 10c/kg higher in prices. The yarding was comprised of 206 grown steers, 285 young cattle and grown heifers, 530 cows and 18 bulls.
The C2 and C3 yearlings made from 250c to 300c, with restockers paying from 220c to 252c/kg. The D1 yearlings were from 184c to 220c and the E1 grade sold from 100c to 180c/kg.
The general run of C3 grown steers made from 300c to 336c, with the best of the C4s making 340c/kg. Older bullocks made to 285c and restockers paid up to 318c/kg for medium weight C2 replacements.
The D2 manufacturing steers were from 240c to a top of 295c/kg for well finished types. The D1 grade sold from 224c to 260c/kg. A single C3 grown heifer made 296c, while the D2 grade received from 230c to 258c and the D1 heifers sold from 216c to 239c/kg.
Restockers paid up to 284c/kg for better bred heifers. Several pens of good quality beef cows were offered and they made from 275c to 290c/kg. The D2 cows sold from 233c to 270c and the D1 cows made from 210c to 246c/kg. Most E1 cows received from 180c to 231c, with very poor condition from 130c/kg. The three heavy weight B2 bulls made 270c, 280c and 285c/kg.
