Fin­ley cat­tle sale re­port:

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

There were 673 in the main run at the Fin­ley cat­tle sale last Wed­nes­day, and 50 stores penned.

Com­pe­ti­tion was sparse, as not all trade buy­ers were op­er­at­ing and or­ders were very lim­ited.

Prices came back sig­nif­i­cantly across all grades of stock.

Re­stocker in­ter­est was non ex­is­tent and feed­lot­ter de­mand was very sub­dued.

It was a tough mar­ket for both fin­ished and store con­di­tioned cat­tle un­der 360kg live weight.

Not as many top sup­ple­men­tary fed steers were on of­fer this week and there were large price fluc­tu­a­tions between each grade.

The best of the veal­ers made to 298c/kg.

The year­ling steers B and C mus­cled to the trade sold from 240c to 307c/kg.

A sup­ple­men­tary fed year­ling heifer topped the sale 310c, with the bulk of the C3 and C4 year­ling heifers mak­ing from 220c to 268c/kg.

The 400-500kg steers reached 286c, while the 500-600kg C mus­cled steers made from 236c to 270c/kg.

There was a large dis­play of Friesian steers, with the best of the heavy Friesian bul­locks mak­ing to 222c/kg.

Beef cows made to 208c and dairy cows reached 210c/kg.
