There was 1100 cattle were yarded today in what was a cheaper market with a good yarding of export cattle and a good run of bullocks also.

Good store cows were ten cents cheaper while plainer cows were ten to twelve cents cheaper.

Bulls were not to bad and firm to slightly cheaper on last weeks quote, there was a good run of bullocks that were fifteen to twenty cents cheaper.

The trade market saw a yarding that was plainer overall with good lines ten to fifteen cents cheaper, secondary lines and kill cattle were were twenty to thirty cents cheaper with more in places.

Supplementary calves and milk calves were ten to twelve cents cheaper.

Good lines of weaners were cheaper this week, the steer portion was ten cents cheaper, however, the heifer portion was fifteen to twenty cents cheaper for good Euro cross lines and twenty to twenty five cents cheaper for British secondary lines.

The easing is due to it being the middle of winter, there is definitely not the demand for restocking cattle at this time of year and it is getting dry, not so much here but the western part of the state is dry, also the meat market is starting to come off the boil so when we combine the two together that is the reason for the easing market.

There is a store sale on Thursday July 20.
