Inverell Market Report 22 March 2016

Numbers halved in the lead up to Easter and with another short working week there was a total of 1110 cattle yarded down 1126 from last week. Young cattle and cows were well represented with a limited supply of heavy grown steers. The quality of the offering was fair to good. Condition was mixed with limited numbers of yearlings suitable to the trade, while there were good supplies of well finished medium and heavy weight cows.
Re-stocker and feedlot orders were active, however at mostly reduced prices. Medium weight vealers to re-stocker averaged 1c to 2c/kg cheaper. C2 vealers to processors saw a similar price correction, while the well finished vealers to local butcher orders were up 6c/kg dearer. Medium and heavy yearling steers to feed sold to a cheaper trend with some of the price change related to quality variations. The better quality medium and heavy heifer yearlings to feed remained firm with the balance selling to a cheaper trend.
Heavy grown steers in limited numbers sold to a dearer trend. There was improvement in the cow market with trends 6c to 10c/kg dearer. Quality played a part in some price change also. The bull market was cheaper with the best heavy weights down 10c/kg
