Prices hold firm despite weather
EUROA Monthly Store Sale comprised of a small yarding of 750 cattle.
Prices held firm to recent sales, despite the recent dry weather.
Competition was strong from local buyers, and without them the sale could have been a lot tougher on prices.
Steers made up the majority of the yarding, with 380- 450kg steers making between 275- 290c/ g.
A very light yarding of heifers came forward mainly due to a Landmark export order to China at $ 1100.
