There was a small decrease in numbers to 441 cattle at Warwick on Tuesday.
Export buyer attendance was similar to last week with all the regular feeder and trade buyers present and active, along with a large line up of local and interstate restockers who were very active on the quality lines of yearling cattle on offer.
A line of PTIC cows created very strong competition, and good heavy cows to export processors mirrored last weeks prices.
Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock averaged 575c and made to 642c/kg. Yearling steers over 330kg to feed made 516c to average 462c/kg. Yearling steers over 400kg to feeder operators sold for 464c to average 445c/kg.
Yearling heifers sold to restockers at 548c and averaged 499c/kg. Yearling heifers to feed for the domestic market made to 483c to average 480c/kg. Yearling heifers over 330kg to feed improved in price making to 495c and averaging 467c, with heifers in the same range to the wholesale meat trade averaging 442c and selling to 474c/kg.
Heavy bullocks to processors made 301c/kg. A line of PTIC cows returning to the paddock sold to 398c and averaged 348c/kg. Good heavy cows to export processors sold to 312c and averaged 306c/kg. Heavy bulls sold to 285c/kg.
