Weaners to restock and feed were 25c to 30c/kg dearer on average, but the quality was much better, with most selling from 245c to 280c/kg at SELX last week.
Numbers fell and the quality improved with a better bred line up.
Prime grown steers over 500kg ranged from 274c to 280c and most of the grown heifers 210c to 240c/kg. Cows were 5c to 6c cheaper, with the medium weight 2 score cows making from 135c to 170c/kg. Heavy 3 and 4 scores sold from 145c to 194c, with the prime heavy weights averaging 185c/kg.
