ANOTHER yarding of close to 10,000 head could be seen at the Roma store sale on Tuesday, based on booking indications so far.

Agents are reporting 9370 head are currently booked for the sale on February 20.

It comes off the back of a bumper 12,118 head at this week's store sale prompted largely by cattle that had been held back a week from western producers reliant on missed rain forecasts in early February. 

At that sale, weaner steers under 220kg topped at 390c/kg and averaged 340c/kg, weaner steers in the 220-280kg range reached 350c/kg and averaged 314c/kg.

Steers in the 280- 350kg range reached 328c/kg and averaged 297c/kg, and steers in the 350-400kg range reached 295c/kg and averaged 279c/kg. Feeder steers in the 400-550kg range topping at 288c/kg and averaging 277c/kg.
