Southern Riverina news - - Rural Outlook -

THERE were 648 prime cat­tle and 55 cows penned.

The trade cat­tle were of mixed qual­ity, with feed­ers and re­stock­ers tak­ing the op­por­tu­nity to se­cure sev­eral pens of the plainer Bos Taurus young cat­tle.

The grown steers were of fair to good qual­ity and even though not all ex­port op­er­a­tors were present prices still re­mained fully firm to a few cents dearer on the heavy weight lines.

There were very few B mus­cled veal­ers of­fered.

The vealer steers and heifers ranged from 200c to a top of 271c/kg.

Sup­ple­men­tary fed year­ling steers were scarce.

The medium and heavy weight year­ling steers C and B mus­cled made from 192c to 228c/kg to av­er­age 214c/kg.

The year­ling heifer por­tion were 5c to 10c/kg cheaper and made from 182c to 212c/kg to av­er­age 193c/kg for the bet­ter qual­ity lines.

The heavy grown steers made from 186c to 198c/kg to av­er­age 194c/kg, while the bul­locks reached 197.6c/kg.

Only a hand­ful of dairy cows were of­fered, some large framed Friesians made to 153.6c/kg.
