I caught up with Tony White, well known private agent and feedlot operator from Dubbo this week.  He told me that the cattle market in the south is extremely solid at the moment with quality young steers selling in excess of 400c/kg with weaner steer calves selling to 500c/kg.  Tony said that feeder steers are making from 340-360c/kg and the heifer portion making 310-340c/kg with preg tested empty heifers making a premium.
