This comes on the back of only a reasonable autumn, but despite this, agents offered a very small yarding of just 181 head, Friday.

Potential buyers knew the day before of the small number of cattle, and some of the regular buyers did not attend.

Of those who did, only two purchased more than 50 head, and one of these was a processor’s feedlot company.

It was fair to say that due to the lack of ability for buyers to put together a load, demand was weaker, and prices followed suit.

Top of the sale was a pen of 10 Angus-Friesian bullocks (446kgs), offered by P McDiarmid, which sold for $1310. There were only three, or four, other vendors that sold more than 10 head. The quality of the yarding was generally quite good. B&D Ray sold 11 Angus steers from $990-$1270.

While the crowd was small, so was the yarding. Agents offered 181 head, but every beast found a home, despite a dry winter so far in the region.
