Comments:

There was a big jump in numbers this week as the dry conditions continue to push cattle onto the market. An excellent run of heavy bullocks was on offer and cows were also well supplied. There was extra processor competition on the bullocks, pushing the best out to 286.2c/kg. Cows however sold slightly easier which is mainly due to huge numbers filling saleyards and abattoirs across the State. Young cattle once again were very hard to shift, quality was a contributing factor.
