Dry lifts bobby calf numbers

THERE was a yarding of 400 cattle sold at the Lismore saleyards on Tuesday.

Good light vealers sold on a par with recent weeks making up to $1.90, with most in the $1.80 to $1.88 range.

Due to the dry weather there was an increase in the number of bobby calves, the best making $2.30, returning $270. Plainer conditioned weaner cattle sold to local and southern buyers, with the top Angus steers making $1.82. Cows and bulls showed little improvement with the top cow making $1.28, returning $814.

On Saturday, cows and calves sold well considering the weather with the best making $840 and most in the $600 to $750 bracket. In a nutshell, big steers were cheaper, small steers sold well and anyone who bought a bull would be happy with their purchase.

This Saturday at Lismore Showground 85 magnificent yearling steers will be sold. They are top quality and the public, as well as butchers, are invited to buy. The sale starts at 1pm.
