By Stuart Sheldrake

THERE was 1172 cattle penned in a market that was cheaper across the board, again due to the drying conditions.

A good number of export cattle were penned with cows being three to five cents cheaper but still selling well.

A good penning of bullocks were five to ten cents cheaper but still sold quite well.

The majority of the yarding was a plainer yarding this week with quite a few cattle starting to feel the dry conditions, however, there is still a lot of cattle with  bit of weight.

There were good lines of crossbred yearling steers that sold to 15 cents cheaper, crossbred yearling heifers also sold 10 to 15 cents cheaper.

Butcher calves sold five to ten cents cheaper.

Not a lot of light weaner cattle were penned but what was there sold quite strong, weaner heifers were about 10 cents easier but still sold quite well, weaner steers sold very well at fully firm rates.

Feeder cattle are considerably cheaper by 10 to 20 cents.

All the secondary lines sold to cheaper trends especially secondary heifers which sold 10 to 20 cents cheaper.

Good lines of cattle are still selling well, when markets come of the first thing to suffer are secondary lines and they are the ones suffering the most.
