THE annual all breeds steer sale at the Burnett Livestock Exchange in Biggenden is set to go off like a rocket, with a capacity 3000 head on offer.
Conducted by Burnett Livestock and Realty, the top quality yarding is represented by six breeds types but is dominated by lines Charolais and Santa infused steers.
The offering, which ranges from weaners through to finisher weight cattle, is expected to create strong competition between both feedlot and grass buyers.
The cattle market is already in something of overdrive following excellent rain across much of eastern Australia.
As a sign of what's happening in the cattle market MLA's Eastern Young Cattle Indicator currently sits on 674.5c/kg dressed, up 39c in a week, and a staggering 112c from January 5.
A quick look over the yarding on Wednesday evening revealed there were plenty of bigger, good forward store steers on offer.
The yarding will be judged by Kenilworth commission buyer John Ferriday.
Prizes for each of the six breed categories will be awarded from 8.15am. The exhibitor of the overall champion pen of steers will win a Leicht's CIA Immobilizer Pro-Chute cattle crush.
The sale is scheduled to kick off at 9am.
