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.
