Light weight yearling heifers reach 386c at Toowoomba


There was good competition for light weight yearling steers to restockers at Toowoomba.


Numbers experienced very little change at 394 head live weight, plus 43 cow and calf units at the Toowoomba sale on Monday.

The usual panel of export buyers was present and operating, along with a good line up of local butchers, feeder operators, and restockers.

Light weight yearling steers to restockers continued to experience good competition. However feeder demand was not as strong as the previous sale.

A small sample of yearling steers and heifers ideally suited to local butchers received very good competition.

Cows experienced a mixed trend with restocker classes in demand, however processor lines eased 16c to 23c/kg.

Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock made to 448.2c to average 436c/kg. Yearling steers in the 280-330kg range sold to restockers at 417c, with sales to 462c/kg.

Medium weight yearling steers to feed made to 394.2c to average 390c, and a small sample of heavy weights averaged 386c/kg.

A handful of well presented heavy weight yearling steers to the trade made to 414.2c to average 411c/kg.

Light weight yearling heifers made to 386c to average 358c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to local butchers made to 427.2c to average 401c, and a few heavy weights made to 402.2c/kg.

Medium weight cows to restockers made to 240c, while medium weight 2 scores to processors made to 243c to average 238c/kg.
