Inverell Market Report 10th October 2017

Cattle: There was a slightly increased penning due to good rain through the district, with vendors holding back to take advantage of future rain. There were no vealers to quote apart from limited local butcher calves, these sold on firm to dearer trends on last day. There were slightly increased numbers of steer and heifer yearlings, but less cows. All processor and feeder orders were in place with re-stockers also active. Light yearling steers to feed showed dearer trends, up by 20c, while the medium and heavy weights saw rises of 10 to 15c/kg. Similarly, the light weight heifers sold up by 15 to 20c/kg. The medium weight heifers sold to firm trends, but quality was an issue. There were few grown steers from last week to quote onto this sale, however the grown heifers showed dearer trends of 4c/kg. The light 2 and 3 score cows were firm with drafts of light PTIC cows going back to the paddock. The better conditioned 4 score cows sold to dearer trends of 10c/kg. Bulls were firm to 3c/kg dearer.
