Special Store Cattle Sale
(450 last sale)
Tough sale but positive signs in prime cattle market
Scott Simshauser from Landmark kicked off the job today, highlighting the “significant jump in the prime cattle on Monday, especially for cattle with any weight” (thanks to continued support from feedlots and processors) and reminding buyers that “cattle with weight start somewhere”. Most of the 1000 head offering today were in the 200-280kg range, with some good value buying for Hunter Valley and northern tablelands buyers keen to snap up the feature lines, with the tough market reflecting the season.
