Inverell Market Report 29th August 2017

Cattle: Numbers were static at 1,100 good quality cattle. Weaners were in short supply but again
there were good numbers of yearling cattle and an increased penning of cows. Yearling
cattle were a stand out with an extra operator in the field. The usual processors were all in
attendance along with the normal feeder orders. There was also a good representation of
re-stockers This translated into a generally dearer trend throughout.
Although there were limited numbers of weaners they were up to 13c dearer for steers, while
the heifer portion was 9c/kg dearer. Feeder operators were strong in an overall good penning
of both steer and heifer yearlings. The demand for the medium weight drafts of steers showed
a dearer trend of up to 12c/kg, there was a similar upward movement for the heifers. Premiums
were paid for the better bred and conditioned categories; however, some secondary types
also showed dearer trends.
There were not enough grown steers and heifers for a reliable quote. C4 heavy cows showed
a dearer trend of 9c/kg; the lighter C2 and C3 cows were also dearer. Bulls sold slightly
