  • PRIME & STORE CATTLE SALE

    THURSDAY 19th April 2018

    The combined agents offered just on 2500 head of cattle at Emerald today. Featuring good lines of local cattle & bigger drafts from Alpha, Clermont and consignments from Richmond & Mackay. In general, quality & presentation was of a good too high standard. Most classes were well represented, however bullocks & weaners (male or female) under 200kg lacked numbers.

    Most of the regular buyers were in attendance, with the addition of one extra processor. Steers; Ox right down to light weaners, eased across the board. Heavy and medium cows remained close enough to firm. Whilst heifers had mixed results. Heifers over 400kg and weaner heifers (particularly the better quality flat backs) showed improvement, whilst feeder weights lost ground. Heavy bulls eased whilst medium bulls stayed firm and only a few small lots of cows & calves were offered.

    Slaughter; limited numbers of Bullocks sold to 254c to a/v 249c back 4c. Heavy cows sold to an isolated 218c, most selling to peak at 208c to a/v 197c, firm. Medium cows also reached 218c for younger #5’s, most selling in the 180c to early 190c mark to a/v 188c also firm. Light cows 400 to 450 kg made to 190c to a/v 173c back 6c. Heavy heifers sold to 254c to a/v 235c up 7c. Heavy bulls made to 227c to a/v 208c minus 11c.
    Feeder; Heavy feeder’s steers 400-500kg made to an isolated 298c to a/v 237c. Steers 350 to 400kg also sold to an isolated 298c to a/v 247c down 20c. Feeder Heifers made to 261c to a/v 236c.

    Yearlings & weaners; Steers 280-350kg sold to 306c to a/v 269c. Heifers 280-350kg sold to 267c to a/v 235c a drop of 9c. Steers 200-280kg topped at 335c to a/v 306c, less 20c.
