Stock Comment

With some real decent rains over the weekend we managed to yard 180 head on Tuesday the 16th October. The market was dearer for all export categories with bullocks selling to 269c/kg and cows to 256c/kg. The market for vealers to the processor was dearer as well with 258c/kg being paid for the top prime milk calves. With not too much store type cattle in the sale it is hard to quote a market however all restockers were definitively more active.
With some good rain here locally and on the Northern Tablelands it will be very interesting to see what the market will do over the next few weeks. More rain in the west is still needed.


We look forward to seeing you this Thursday 18th October 2018
