Inverell Market Report 26th September 2017

Cattle: There was a reduced penning of 1,020 mixed quality cattle. Numbers included a token yarding of weaners, while yearling numbers halved. Grown steer and heifer numbers were back, along with cows, but good numbers of bulls were on offer. All the usual processors were present and operating, along with current feeder orders and an additional two feeder buyers returned after an absence of some time.
The few weaners penned sold to a cheaper trend of 17c/kg. Yearling cattle also sold to cheaper trends early in the offering, particularly heifers. Yearling steers were cheaper by 5c to 10c, however as the sale progressed and some very good lines of steers came forward and those classes showed firm to slightly dearer trends. Heifers were most affected in a market. They showed cheaper trends of up to 50c for the light weight feeders and 15c to 20c/kg for the medium descriptions.
Grown steers also sold to an easier trend of 23c while the heifer portion wasn’t as affected. The 2 and 3 score cows sold to firm trends while the better finished 3 and 4 score grades were firm to slightly cheaper. Bulls sold to a dearer trend to be 10c/kg better.
