Jan­uary 6

Yard­ing 412.

There was a large de­cline in sup­ply for the start of the New Year with good rain­fall over the sup­ply area re­strict­ing num­bers.

Mixed qual­ity young cat­tle made up the bulk of the yard­ing along with just a hand­ful of cows.

Very few ex­porters were in attendance how­ever de­mand was high from the reg­u­lar trade and feeder op­er­a­tors.

The re­cent rain en­cour­aged a large num­ber of re­stock­ers and on­look­ers back into the mar­ket and price im­prove­ments of 10-30c/kg were fairly common.

Lo­cal butcher or­ders strug­gled to se­cure the small se­lec­tion of good vealer heifers and paid to 238.2c/kg, with most sales from 215-220c/kg.

A small se­lec­tion of light­weight year­ling steers re­turned to the pad­dock at 236c/kg with sales to 248.2c/kg.

Medium weights also to re­stock­ers av­er­aged 222c/kg and made to 245c/kg, while a hand­ful to lo­cal butch­ers made to 237.2c/kg.

Medium weight year­ling heifers in plainer con­di­tion were keenly se­cured by re­stock­ers at an av­er­age of 206c/kg with some to 219.2c/kg.

Feeder classes av­er­aged 202c and made to 210c/kg.

Lo­cal butch­ers ab­sorbed the fair sam­ple of well pre­sented slaugh­ter classes and paid to 229.2c/kg, with most around 212c/kg.

A hand­ful of medium weight 2 score cows av­er­aged just un­der 150c/kg.
