It was a plain quality yarding with large numbers of yearlings which were mostly in store condition. There were only limited numbers to suit the feeders and processors.

Bobby calves and cows were well supplied, though the cow quality was back and there were just a few pens of
well finished grown steers and heifers. Most of the regular buyers were in attendance and operating in a solid market.

Young cattle to the trade were 8c dearer with the prime steer yearlings selling from 280c to 310c, while the prime heifer yearlings sold from 255c to 289c/kg.
Feeder steers and heifers were 8c to 12c dearer with the feeder steers selling from 274c to 317c, while the feeder heifers sold from 250c to 284c/kg.
Young restocker cattle were 8c dearer with the young steers selling from 170c to 310c, while the restocker heifers
sold from 185c to 270c/kg.
