Cat­tle sale re­port:

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

Num­bers re­mained high at the Fin­ley cat­tle sale last Wed­nes­day, with some ex­cel­lent qual­ity sup­ple­men­tary fed Euro­pean cross calves and year­lings of­fered.

There were also sev­eral runs of grown steers and fin­ished bul­locks.

Only 56 cows were penned with the ma­jor­ity of those be­ing beef breeds.

There wasn’t much joy for pro­duc­ers as prices con­tin­ued their slide even with a full field of trade and ex­port buy­ers present.

A lo­cal feed­lot­ter helped buf­fer some of the price falls on the plainer lines.

Young cat­tle to pro­ces­sors were 15c to 30c cheaper than a fort­night ago, while the feeder steers were 25c to 55c/kg back.

The best of the veal­ers made to 322c, with the B2s av­er­ag­ing 310c/kg.

The year­ling steers B and C mus­cled ranged from 248c to 319c, to av­er­age 285c/kg for the B2 por­tion.

The year­ling heifers made from 240c to 310c, with the C3’s av­er­ag­ing 249c/kg.

There was also a large se­lec­tion of very plain store con­di­tioned stock that came through.

The grown steers and bul­locks were back by 17c to 23c/kg.

The 500-600kg steers made from 236c to 256c, to av­er­age 250c and the 600kg plus bul­locks reached 256c/kg. Friesian bul­locks sold to 224c/kg.

Beef cows made from 210c to 225c, 6c/kg cheaper.
