Numbers decreased slightly in a good to fair quality offering. Vealers were in shorter supply and quality was mixed due to the hot weather in recent weeks. Yearlings and heavy export cattle were in reasonable numbers. The usual buyers were in attendance, along with an extra processor. The good quality supply of vealers sold to the usual group of buyers. Vealers prices varied depending on quality and fat cover with the better shaped European veal selling from 275c to 315c/kg. Medium weight trade heifers sold to steady demand from
250c to 285c/kg. Trade steer numbers increased and so did prices. The better finished steers sold from 262c to 294c/kg. Feeder steers sold to steady demand with prices firm to 2c easier making from 243c to 281c/kg. Demand for export cattle fluctuated at times with milk and two tooth pens creating the strongest competition. The better quality
pens of prime C3 steers and bullocks made from 255c to 276c/kg. Manufacturing types were discounted heavily making from 216c to 226c/kg.
