THERE were re­duced num­bers to 1670 cat­tle, a pen­ning of 600 head fewer.

Smaller num­bers of wean­ers were yarded, but there was an in­crease in year­ling cat­tle.

Grown steers and heifers were also in lesser num­bers as well as cows, where the num­bers re­duced to 183 head, al­most half last weeks' pen­ning.

Best weaner steers showed a cheaper trend, although the av­er­age was firm. The heifer por­tion was a lit­tle dearer.

Both steer and heifer year­lings were firm to slightly dearer on last day.

There were only a min­i­mal num­ber of grown cat­tle to quote, with steers and heifers be­ing cheaper. Best cows showed a cheaper trend and light cows held firm.

Bulls were also dearer.
