Yea store cattle sale: stronger-than-expected prices across 1700-head yarding

1 September 2023

A different set of buyers kept cattle prices alive at Yea on Friday, with the market not as difficult as anticipated although there was still depressed spots for secondary animals.

Regular feedlot and northern commission buyers such as Duncan Brown and Campbell Ross were no shows for the 1700-head yarding, causing some angst pre-sale.

However agents from South Gippsland through to the North East and Shepparton regions stepped in and kept prices firm to arguably a shade dearer than recent markets.

Heavy pens of steers in the opening laneway sold to $1510 with most of the Angus weighing more than 400kg comfortably trending above 300c/kg liveweight.
