PRIME & STORE CATTLE SALE  THURSDAY 2nd April 2020

Once again, we saw a relatively big yarding in the Highlands this week seeing Emerald Combined Agents yard a total of 2435hd in the Emerald Saleyards. It was a very mixed yarding with a large percentage of plainer typed cattle, with the exception on some selected better pens of local weaner cattle. The market across the board fell 10-15c/kg in most areas, seeing both feeder steers and heifers over 350kg fall greater again, back 20-30c/kg from the previous week’s sale. Bullocks 550kg and over topped at 290c/kg to average 288.0 back 7c, feeder steers topped out at 313c to average 290c back 25c to last week, weaner steers were also back to last week’s market however better-bred local cattle still seeing close to the 400c mark topping at 397c/kg. Cows were a shade cheaper being back 5-10c from previous weeks topping at 266c to average 250c. Feeder heifer were again back off the pace dropping upwards of 25c/kg.
