There were approximately 120 cows and 20 bulls penned representing a decrease of 100 head week-on-week. The usual buying group was present and competing in a dearer cow market, while the bull market was cheaper. Quality was fair, with fewer dairy cows on offer and only a limited supply of well finished heavy beef cows. Prices for cows lifted 3c to 9c/kg on most sales. Heavy weight bulls eased 17c/kg with quality an issue.
Most light and medium weight cows sold from 190c to 231c/kg. Heavy weight cows made mostly between 200c and 250c after a top of 270c/kg for a high yielding European bred cow. Heavy weight bulls sold between 232c and 245c/kg.
