Numbers eased this week after weeks of high numbers yarded. The market showed some strength despite 1 major processor not operating. Cows sold to a dearer trend of 10-15c/kg. Bulls remained the same, as well as export heifers & bullocks. Weaners were in shorter supply with good quality light weight steers & heifers selling firm to dearer & second-rate lighter cattle easing once again by 10-15c/kg, proving this year’s market to be extremely quality driven.
