Feeder Cattle in Demand

9 August 2023

NUMBERS were low, and quality was plain at the Yea store sale last week as local farmers under no pressure to sell stock avoided the sluggish winter market.

Around 700 mixed cattle were yarded, selling to a top of $1560 for Angus feeder steers with a displayed weight of 441kg liveweight, which worked out at 353c/kg liveweight. They were listed under the name Kalitara of Tallarook.

Selling agents said they were surprised at the depth of competition that turned out for feeder-weight cattle, with more than six commission and feedlot buyers attending.
