Cat­tle sale:

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

There were greater num­bers of cows of­fered at the Fin­ley sale on Wed­nes­day last week, with the bulk of the in­crease be­ing dairy types.

The young cat­tle con­sisted of a mix of both ex­cel­lent qual­ity sup­ple­men­tary fed year­lings and some plainer store steers.

A few more buy­ers were present this week and com­pe­ti­tion was stronger for the fin­ished stock, with prices for the veal­ers and year­lings see­ing the largest in­crease.

The ma­jor­ity of the veal­ers made from 309c to a top of 341c/kg.

The C and B mus­cled year­ling steers made from 305c to 341c/kg.

The year­ling heifers made from 292c to 336c/kg.

Heavy steer num­bers were scarce, how­ever the best of the heavy 500kg to 600kg steers reached 316c, while the 600kg plus steers made to 305c/kg.

The light weighted dairy cows av­er­aged 175c, while the heavy dairy cows made from 181c to 229.6c.

Av­er­ag­ing 187c/kg, they fin­ished a shade eas­ier than a fort­night ago.

There were some very good heavy C mus­cled Euro­pean bred beef cows that made to 254c and the bulk of the beef cows made from 195c to 244c/kg.
