Elders selling Angus x Steers on behalf of Matt & Maree Doyle, Yass for 307c/kg, av 379.7kg, $1165.58.

Well finished and bred yearling steers to the trade were up to 13c dearer, topping at 295c and those suiting feeder orders were also dearer, ranging from 255c to 307c/kg at SELX today.

The first Yass cattle sale for 2018 saw a decrease in numbers for a total yarding of 340 fair to good quality cattle.

The bulk of the offering was made up by yearlings, with a few vealers and a limited number of cows. All usual buyers were operating selling to a firm market.

The best vealer topped at 292c and there was less demand for weaners returning to the paddock, with the steers selling from 289c to 338c/kg and a limited number of heifers.

Yearling heifers to processors were up to 15c dearer for the heavier and higher yielding types to average 280c/kg.

Feeder heifers were 7c cheaper, selling from 262c to 285c/kg. There was less demand for heifers from re-stockers.

There was not enough grown steers or heifers to quote. There was a limited number of cows, with lighter D2 cows to re-stockers averaging 214c/kg and heavier D3 and D4 cows made from 205c to 218c/kg. The best heavy weight bull reached 245c/kg.
