Boy­anup sale re­port

Countryman - - LIVESTOCK -

The Boy­anup store sale on July 6 was a sale of two parts with Friesian cat­tle be­ing the most sought after re­tain­ing and im­prov­ing on re­cent prices.

The beef bred types did not sell as well. The first sec­tion in­cor­po­rated 320 head of live weight beef bred and Friesian year­ling and vealer cat­tle with con­di­tion score and poorer qual­ity to the pre­vi­ous sale.

A good se­lec­tion of Friesian steers main­tained their price to re­main firm.

Beef bred types eased 15c to 40c/kg as a lim­ited num­ber of buy­ers op­er­ated due to re­cent rain.

Friesian year­ling steers were firm from 188c to 208c to av­er­age 198c/kg. The beef bred vealer steers sold from 240c to 320c to av­er­age 293c, down 20c/kg.

Beef bred vealer heifers made from 160c to 268c to av­er­age 222c, eas­ing 15c/kg.

The beef bred year­ling steers sold from 188c to 296c to av­er­age 237c, down 20c with beef bred year­ling heifers down 40c due mainly to qual­ity to sell from 200c to 238c to av­er­age 219c/kg.

The sec­ond part of the sale was the un­weighed cat­tle, the ma­jor­ity be­ing Friesian light weight steers.

The mar­ket fin­ished higher as prices changed dra­mat­i­cally to be $45 to $65/head dearer on in­creased de­mand for th­ese light weights.

The 12-15 month olds sold from $580 to $740 to av­er­age $650, up $45/head.

The 6-12 month olds sold from $400 to $585 to av­er­age $485, up by $65/head.

The un­der 6 month olds made from $255 to $400 to av­er­age $350, up $50/head.
