The four lightest young heifer categories increased in prices this week, with the 400kg+ category only slipping lower by $1 on last week, to average $2,310/head. Like the steer portion, there was another big offering through the 200-280kg segment, with the 2,326 head offered selling to a 93% clearance rate – averaging $69 higher on last week, at $1,595/head.

While the supply was higher through the weaner and yearling lines this week, it was another tight offering for the proven breeders, with the 1,468 PTIC heifers selling to a 65% clearance rate.

After last weeks decline, the PTIC heifer category regained all the lost ground and then some, with the average price for the week up $279, to $2,874/head. An indicative line of 54 Angus PTIC heifers from Heywood Victoria, aged 25-26 months weighing 494.8kg liveweight returned $3,100/head.

The heifers were joined to Barwidgee Angus Bulls and will travel to Dunedoo, NSW.

The available supply of cows was again very tight, with the weekly average for NSM cows with calves at foot finishing at $3,512/unit, with a 65% clearance rate for the 830 head offered.

A line of Santa Gertrudis cross, station mated cows with CAF aged 2-5 years, weighing 513kg liveweight, with calves averaging 125kg, returned $3,310/head.
