Weighed weaner steers topped at 418c/kg, averaging $1747.83 per head. Open Auction Steers went under the hammer for $1235 per head.
The heifer section was very solid as buyers showed far more interest in the heifers then the steers today making it a very competitive market. Weighed weaner heifers did exceptional fetching 399c/kg, averaging $1740.64 per head. Grown heifers topped at 410c/kg, averaging $1827.00. Open auctions heifers consisted of a lot of colour, but still made great money making $1450 per head.
A group of 12 PTIC Heifers topped out at $1690 per head. Plenty of Cows & Calves on show today, with the top pen making $2450 per head. There was a large attendance of feedlot buyers, processors all trying to secure numbers to put on feed for the winter.
