THERE was a good-sized yarding with most people satisfied by prices at last Thursday's G&F Stanthorpe sale.
G&F auctioneer Matthew Grayson said just on 700 head of cattle had gone under the hammer, with about 500 steers and 200 heifers, the majority weaners, being offered.
Old Koreelah's Peter and Lorraine Mulcahy's weaner steers fetched the top prices, with one pen making $600, while Doriza Pastoral sold three pens of weaner heifers together for $514.
Mr Grayson said it had been a good yarding for this time of the season, with local buyers offering their cash.
"The market was strong on today's rates and there was a good run of quality cattle there,' he said.
"It was a good-sized yarding for this time of year and most stayed local.
"Most people were happy with the prices they received and people were happy with what they bought."
Mr Grayson said the past month had been kind to cattle producers after rain on winter crops "kicked the market along".
Deepwater's Robert Newsome, who sold 50 Angus weaners, said the season had been fantastic.
"It has been a good season and I've got fantastic feed at the moment," he said.
"I've had a lot of rain and got good grass coverage."
