ROMA

CAT­TLE num­bers con­tin­ued to rise at the Roma Store Sale up by 880 head to 10,300. Cat­tle were drawn from across Queens­land and the North­ern Ter­ri­tory. The usual panel of buy­ers was present and op­er­at­ing. The yard­ing was dom­i­nated by young cat­tle of mixed qual­ity, with steers ac­count­ing for al­most half the yard­ing. De­mand for the bet­ter-qual­ity lines of cat­tle re­mained strong, how­ever the yard­ing ex­pe­ri­enced qual­ity-re­lated price changes across all cat­e­gories. Light weight year­ling steers to re­stock­ers de­creased 13c to 32c/kg. Feeder steers re­mained firm with lit­tle change across the weight cat­e­gories.
