Yarding: 584 (64).
Another reduced line-up following more rain. There was, however, some outstanding young cattle off grain as steers and heifers that have been supplementary fed for the winter market start to appear. There was an additional domestic buyer that returned for this reason. All buyers were keen to fill orders and prices for the best yearlings and vealers lifted 20c to 30c/kg on a fortnight ago. Processors were also willing to support well finished cattle with weight, paying up to 430c/kg for steers at 550kg. The vealer run reached a top of 454c/kg. Competitive bidding between processors pushed rates above 400c/kg for any well shaped steers and heifers with good carcase finish. Most of
the young cattle in the higher price range of 420 to 450c/kg were either Charolais and Limousin-cross and off grain, and with potentially above-average carcase yields. The main run of heavy steers, 500 to 600kg, sold to 437c and averaged 415c/kg to return over $2,200/head each. The best of the grown heifers also tracked over 400c/kg. Neat domestic calves sold to 454c/kg for a heifer vealer that weighed 321kg. Feedlots and restockers also had to pay over 400c/kg for the better lines of weaners and yearlings. Plainer bred and conditioned cattle off grass generally 360c to 390c/kg. Little Friesian steers to the paddock sold to 300c/kg. Not a lot of genuine export weighed cattle in the yarding. Good beef cows sold from 260c to a top of 320c/kg. Just one heavy bullock over 600kg made 381c/kg.

Elders reports Muchea's total cattle numbers remained similar to the previous week. Live weight cattle numbers eased marginally to 1061 head with calf numbers in the appraisal yards rising to 264 head. Overall quality continued to be mixed with a solid percentage of the yarding again sourced from pastoral regions.

Local feeder and grazier demand improved marginally with most sales up a further 5c/kg live weight with Angus heifers peaking to a high of 352c/kg. This was little change in live export or export feeder demand for medium and light weight bulls from either local or pastoral regions.

A very mixed quality cow yarding saw a marginal increase in demand and prices with prime sales a further 5c/kg live weight

Yarding: 190 (92).
Numbers were again low as agents offered 190 head of liveweight cattle to the usual trade and processor buyers, feeders and restockers. Quality was again extremely mixed with few prime trade cattle on offer, however feeder and restocker competition was better than expected with most sales across the yarding of predominantly score 2 condition steers and heifers posting a 15c to 20c/kg rise over last week. Vealer heifers of mostly medium weight sold from 344c to 358c/kg. Yearling steers again of mostly medium weights saw processors bidding from 348c to 382c with restocker competition from 342c to 378c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to processors sold from 318c to 370c with restockers bidding from 320c to 362c/kg. Grown steers sold from 346c to 354c with grown heifers making 332c to 362c/kg. There were too few cows and bulls were offered to quote.
