THE number of cattle yarded remained steady, consisting of a good supply of heavy yearlings.
Agents yarded 5147 head, down eight head on the previous sale.
Vealers and light yearlings were down in numbers and there was a good yarding of grown cattle.
Quality of the young cattle was mixed, with most of the yearling steers going to feeders and restockers, with several runs of well-bred cattle offered.
There were several pens of supplementary-fed yearling heifers sold, with feeders and restockers active on the plainer grades.
Vealer steers topped at 239c/kg, with calves selling to 242c/kg.
Light restocker yearling steers were easier, although the better-bred cattle held firm.
Medium-weight feeder steers held firm, topping at 216.2c/kg, while heavyweights struggled to hold firm, selling from 180c/kg to 200c/kg.
Supplementary-fed yearling heifers met strong butcher and wholesale competition, selling from 190c/kg to 209c/kg, while feeder heifers met an erratic market ranging from 165c/kg to 205c/kg.
Heavy bullocks and steers were down by 5c/kg to 7c/kg selling from 177c/kg to 185c/kg, however the larger number of two and three-score steers were less affected.
The cow market was down by 5c/kg to 8c/kg for the medium and heavyweights, while two score cows saw little change.
