There was a wide variation in the quality of the young cattle, however the standard cows was generally good. Buyers operated selectively on the young light weight cattle with only well bred lines in demand.
Medium and heavy weight yearling steers to feed followed a similar trend, to experience only quality related price changes. Good quality lines of yearling heifers experienced strong support, while secondary classes experienced a cheaper market.
