Joined heifers at Yea range in price from $2000 to $3400.


A small, but good quality yarding of joined females and heifers at Yea saw prices reach $3400 for joined heifers.

Agents yarded 480 head of joined heifers, cows and calves.

Anthony Delaney, Nutrien Ag Delaney Livestock, said he wasn't surprised at the smaller yarding, particularly with the number of joined heifers that had been sold before Christmas.

"A lot of our clients who background heifers and have them for this sale were out of that market," Mr Delaney said.

"Most of the heifers and cows and calves went back locally, through Euroa and up to Myrtleford.

"It was typically a good local yarding, selling to what I would call local competition.

"The stock presented in "excellent condition."

Chris Pollard, Nutrien Ag Solutions, said many joined heifers had been sold through spring.

"People took the money and ran," Mr Pollard said.

"On reflection, they may have been better off hanging onto them."

The joined heifers ranged in price from $2000-$3400.

"All your better quality cattle made over $2600," he said.

There was plenty of weight in the cattle.

"We've had a thumping season, so the cattle are in good nick," Mr Pollard said.
