Fin­ley cat­tle sale:

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

An­other 3mm to 10mm of rain fell overnight ahead of the Fin­ley Cat­tle Sale last Wed­nes­day.

There was a full field of trade buy­ers present.

Qual­ity was very plain as the bulk of the yard­ing were lines of store con­di­tioned young stock, many of which were show­ing the ef­fects of the cold con­di­tions.

The plainer cat­tle sold at cheaper rates, al­though feed­lot­ters and re­stock­ers were ac­tive, all were keen to pull prices back.

The very best of the veal­ers and sup­ple­men­tary fed year­ling steers re­mained on par to the fort­night be­fore.

The heavy steers and bul­locks were un­changed, beef cows im­proved in price, lift­ing by up to 10c/kg for the C4 and D4 cows com­pared to the last sale.

The best of the veal­ers made to a top of 365c/kg. The year­ling steers reached 335c to av­er­age 315c/kg.

The feeder steer por­tion made from 311c to 330c/kg.

The year­ling heifers C3 and C4 made from 284c to 336c with a sup­ple­men­tary fed B mus­cled heifer reaching 360c/kg.

The 500-600kg steers C3 and C4 made from 285c to 308c to av­er­age 300c, while the 600kg plus steers made to 290c/kg.

Heavy beef cows made from 217c to 256c to av­er­age 244c/kg for the D4 types.

The dairy por­tion made from 212c to 240c/kg.
