Fin­ley cat­tle sale re­port:

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

Num­bers at the Novem­ber 7 cat­tle sale were back slightly on the fort­night pre­vi­ous, how­ever there was a much larger show­ing of ex­cel­lent qual­ity sup­ple­men­tary fed veal­ers and year­lings.

There were not as many ex­port op­er­a­tors or trade buyers about the sale.

The top ends of the young cat­tle re­mained firm, even though qual­ity ex­celled from a fort­night ear­lier.

The grown steers and plainer shaped or stored con­di­tioned cat­tle sold at cheaper prices.

The best of the veal­ers sold from 286c to a top of 329.2c/kg for a B mus­cled calf that had also been sup­ple­men­tary fed.

The B and C mus­cled year­ling steers

made from 260c to 325c, while the year­ling heifer por­tion sold from 255c to 310c/kg.

There were very few heavy bul­locks, with the bulk of the grown steers be­ing in the 400-500kg weight cat­e­gory a, mak­ing from 268c to 295c/kg.

The 500-600kg steers made from 272c to 285c, with the odd bul­lock over 600kg mak­ing to 272c/kg. Friesian steers reached 195c/kg. The beef cows made from 185c to 216c/kg, with the ma­jor­ity be­ing of plain con­di­tion.

The dairy por­tion sold from 152c to 200c/kg.
