Prices, quality on quality, were 15c/kg dearer for the few vealers and overall unchanged for yearlings though these did fluctuate a bit during their sale. The few grown steers averaged 40c lower and beef cows were 10c/kg cheaper. All other cows made firm to slightly easier prices while the one sale of four jersey bulls sold 30c to 40c/kg dearer than recent sales.
