Feeder steers rise 10-13c/kg and weaners up 15-20c/kg

SELX-Cattle-5-Oct

Matt & Bec Hewitt, Gunning sold their Friesian steers with Duncombe & Co to a top of 213.2c/kg, av 677kg, $1443.36ph.

Weaners to re-stockers lifted 15c to 20c, selling from 240c to 278c/kg at SELX Yass on Thursday.

Feeder steers lifted 13c on the medium weights and 10c/kg on the preferred lines of heavy weights.

Numbers eased and quality improved. Weaners were not as well supplied but there was a much better offering of yearlings, which suited the larger group of feedlot buyers.

Heavy trade cattle were limited with the feedlots purchasing most weights and condition.

Prime heavy grown steers were in good numbers and there were plenty of well-covered grown heifers. The market was dearer in most categories.

Feeder heifers were up by 15c to 20c/kg with the extra competition. Steers sold from 232c to 275c and the heifers made from 220c to 257c/kg. Trade steers ranged from 265c to 281c and heifers traded from 250c to 260c/kg.

Grown steers were up to 20c stronger, ranging between 250c and 265c, and heifers suited to slaughter lifted 10c to 15c, ranging from 180c to 247c/kg.

The majority were heavy well-covered cows and sold 5c to 10c/kg better. Heavy 3 and 4 score cows ranged from 188c to 215c, with 6 tooth cows reaching 228c/kg.
