Special store cattle sale
400(1200) head offered
Numbers down but market strong as producers "sit on the fence"
One of the smallest yardings in Tamworth for some time today as vendors sit on the fence waiting for the predicted rain to fall over the weekend. Agents described the market as “stronger for the cattle that were here” with the bulk of the offering made up of lightweight types that will be become increasingly hard to find when the season does improve. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later with light to moderate rain forecast for at least the next 7 days.
Weaner steers sold from $530 - $770 ($800 last sale) for Charolais x steers sold by IML. Yearling steers sold to $995 ($1000 last sale) for Angus steers (pictured top left) sold by CP on account Hawthorn.
Weaner heifers sold to $740 ($770 last sale) for Charolais x heifers sold by IML. Yearling heifers sold to $740 ($825 last sale) for Angus heifers sold by CP.
