Emerald Report
  • Yarding: Yarding 2000
  •  

    THURSDAY 16th November 2017

    Numbers remained similar to last week when the combined agents offer 2000 head at Emerald today. Cattle were sourced from predominately within the local and near local areas. There was a full panel of buyers in operation and the competition was strong throughout. Quality and presentation for the most part was of a high standard & whilst most cattle are starting to show the signs of the early break to the summer season. There is still a huge contrast in condition throughout the yarding & it is becoming more evident the difference between the lucky ones and those that have not been quite so fortunate. Weaner heifers on the back of one large consignment from Moranbah, dominated proceedings representing approximately 40% of the entire yarding.

    Bullocks numbers increased significantly this week, the better younger types hitting the specs sold to stronger rates. Small numbers of heavy heifers showed slight improvement. Cows were limited for numbers and quality, thus failed to gain the buyers attention & bulls continue a downward trend.

    Feeder steers & heifers remained firm to a shade dearer. Yearling heifer’s 280 to 350 kg showed the biggest improvement. Weaner steers more than halved in numbers, however were solid throughout to remain firm. Weaner heifers were once again in demand to show further gains on the back of a good quality offering.

    2 good quality pens of medium & large frame store condition cows and calves sold for $1,560 & $1,660 respectively.

    Bullocks over 550kg sold to 283c to a/v 262c, while the 500-550kg remained firm to a/v 271c. Heavy heifers over 400kg were too few to quote. Cows over 520kg sold to a/v 227c, while Cows 450-520kg sold to a/v 221c a drop of 10c, Cows 400-450kg sold to 224c to a/v 218c. Heavy Bulls over 600kg sold to 254c to a/v 235c. Bulls 450-600kg reached 247c to a/v 233c.
    Feeder Steers 400-500kg sold to a/v 281c plus 2c. Steers 350-400kg sold to 317c to a/v 282c. Steer 280-350kg sold to a/v 336c up 15c. Feeder heifers 350-400kg sold to 283c to a/v 272c an increase of 5c. Heifers 280-350 kg sold to 327c to a/v 299c up 30c.
