There was a small in­crease in the over­all num­bers this sale. All cat­e­gories were well rep­re­sented, how­ever there was a large sup­ply of year­lings.

The qual­ity of the of­fer­ing was very good and con­di­tion mostly for­ward to well-fin­ished.

Heavy cat­tle were in large num­bers in both the young cat­tle and ex­port sec­tions. The full field of reg­u­lar pro­ces­sors and feed­lot­ters were in at­ten­dance and com­pet­ing strongly.

De­mand for year­ling steers was strong through­out re­sult­ing in firm to dearer mar­ket trends. The light weight year­ling steers to re­stock­ers were firm to slightly dearer.

Medium weights to re­stock­ers and feed­ers saw lit­tle but qual­ity and breed re­lated price vari­a­tion.

A high qual­ity pen­ning of heavy year­ling feeder steers av­er­aged higher on an oth­er­wise firm mar­ket trend.

There was a small amount of vari­a­tion in the mar­ket for year­ling heifers with some sales strug­gling to main­tain their pre­vi­ous value. How­ever, as com­pe­ti­tion for sup­ply in­creased and qual­ity im­proved the mar­ket re­sponded pos­i­tively to show a firm to dearer trend. Some sales in the medium and heavy weight feed­ers were up to 8c/kg dearer.

The very best of the heavy grown steers showed an im­prove­ment in qual­ity and sold as much as 10c/kg dearer.

The gen­eral run of heavy steers were sim­i­lar in qual­ity to the pre­vi­ous week and were firm to cheaper, up 10c/kg in places. Well fin­ished heavy grown heifers sold to a dearer trend with age re­lated dis­counts ac­count­ing for a wide price range.

There was lit­tle change in the mar­ket for medium weight cows. The good sup­ply of well fin­ished heavy weight cows sold to a dearer trend, up 6c/kg in places, with all pro­ces­sors com­pet­ing strongly.

Heavy bulls were firm to 3c/kg dearer.
