Livestock Report

There were 905 export and 335 trade cattle offered. Most categories sold at higher rates and even the plainer lines of cattle averaged higher prices. A large number of good quality Friesian steers and heavy dairy cows was offered while beef cow numbers were subdued.

The quality in the trade section was very mixed, there were only very few light weighed cattle on offer. The prices for trade cattle lifted by 5c to 15c/kg due to buyers being more competitive.


Vealers made 185c to 260c/kg Yearling Steers ranged from 206c to 240c/kg Yearling Heifers ranged from 175c to 226c/kg 330 - 400kg Steers made 196c to 206c/kg 400kg + Steers ranged from 214c to 240c/kg Heavy Bullocks made from 195c to 225c/kg Heavy Beef Cows made from 156c to 205c/kg Dairy Cows made from 124c to 182c/kg
