A REDUCED yarding of 220 cattle was sold at Lismore Saleyards on Tuesday.
It was a mixed quality yarding of vealers, but the market was very strong with most classes improving in price.
Prime milk or grain assisted vealers sold from $2.90 to $3.10/kg.
Gary Savins's Angus heifers sold for $3.04/kg and returned $963.
Restocker steers showed a rise of 15c to 20c/kg. Lightweight steers sold up to $3.50/kg. Eight-month-old Charolais and Angus steers sold from $3.20 to $3.30/kg.
Secondary vealers and plain yealings also sold on a dearer market with a new meat processor in the market
Cows also showed an improvement.
Greg Hunter's Murray Grey cow topped the day at $2.58/kg for a healthy return of $1665.
Secondary cows sold from $1.80 to $2.20/kg and light condition cows $1.20 to $1.75/kg.
I've been saying for a while now, there shouldn't be a wild cow left on the North Coast the way prices are.
Cull out any bad temperament or old unproductive cows and take the money while it's going.
On Saturday at Lismore Saleyards, a top yarding of 200 cattle will be sold.
A particular good line of young Brahman X, Charbray and Angus breeders will be sold.
Your attendance is recommended.
