Num­bers re­main tight. Very few heavy bul­locks were yarded this week but plenty of well­cov­ered beef cows were of­fered. The re­turn of an ex­port buyer bol­stered com­pe­ti­tion on the dairy cows and man­u­fac­tur­ing grade steers to keep prices firm to a few cents dearer. The trade cat­tle were of mixed qual­ity and lot feed­ers and re­stock­ers were a lit­tle more sub­dued. Year­ling steers were scarce. The best of the trade cat­tle were slightly dearer. The veal­ers made to 375¢/kg. The B- and C-mus­cled year­ling steers to the trade made from 311¢ to 357¢/kg. The bulk of the year­ling heifers ranged from 295¢ to 345¢/kg. The 500 – 600kg C-mus­cled steers made from 293¢ to 305¢ to be firm to 4¢/kg cheaper. The 600kg plus bul­locks reached 304¢/kg. The bulk of the Friesian steers with some fin­ish made from 243¢ to 258¢/kg. D1 and D2 dairy cows over 520kg made from 188¢ to 236¢ to av­er­age 207¢/kg. The beef cows made from 212¢ to 248¢ to av­er­age 240¢/kg for the D4s.
