Yarding: 3310. In an increased penning on May 1, weaners and cows were once again well represented.
There was a fair supply of yearlings, grown steers and heifers of any quality were limited in number. The quality of the offering was mostly good, however there was a limited supply of well-finished cattle, most of those in cows.
The full field of buyers were in attendance, however there was a bit less feedlot competition on heavy feeder steers. There were varying market trends through the young cattle, with weaker demand resulting in a firm to 9c/kg cheaper market trend for medium and heavy weaner steers to restock and feed.
Medium weight weaner heifers to restock sold to a dearer trend, up to 5c/kg. They represented lighter weights and therefore a much lower buy in price than the equivalent steers.
Well-finished vealers suitable to the trade saw a firm to cheaper market trend with some of the price decline quality related.
Heavy yearling feeder steers remained close to firm despite there being less competition. Medium weight yearling heifers experienced little change in the market trend, late in the sale there was an odd dearer sale.
There were too few well-finished heavy grown steers and heifers to quote. The cow market was solid despite the large numbers.
Increased restocker activity combined with solid processor support saw the plainer condition cows sell on a firm to slightly dearer market trend. There was little but a quality related price movement in the better condition cows, those with a lower yield potential struggled to maintain their value.
