The numbers remained steady with calves, yearlings and particularly cows well represented.
The quality of the offering was good, with some very well bred lines available.
The condition of the offering showed great variation with good supplies of well finished cattle penned.
Restockers and feedlotters were also well catered for, with plainer condition cattle in fair numbers.
Market trends through the young cattle were dearer overall.
Restockers motivated by recent rain competed strongly on light weight cattle. The calves sold to a dearer trend of up to 10c/kg. Vealers to restockers also sold to dearer trends. There were some strong price gains through the light weight yearling steers to restock, with breed a factor in some cases.
A modest increase in supply of heavy feeder steers sold to dearer trends as buyers competed strongly for weight. There were dearer trends through the yearling heifers, with light weights well supplied.
Medium weight feeder heifers were up to 5c/kg dearer. Well finished heifers to the trade saw a dearer trend of as much as 10c/kg.
A small number of heavy grown steers attracted keen processor competition, as did well finished grown heifers, which sold up to 14c/kg dearer.
The cow market was strong throughout, with processors competing to secure requirements. Only the plainest condition cows were purchased by restockers. Market trends were firm to slightly dearer for all cows purchased by processors.
