Completing for a minimal yarding of 450 head, local restocker buyers and several from afar competed keenly to return cattle to the paddock while a live-export order absorbed the lions share of the heavier grown cattle.

Heavier steers, upwards of 400 kilograms, on the day made $1560 to $1680 a head while lighter yearling-off steers, rising 300-400kg, retained excellent sales in the $1200 to $1360 price bracket.

A small but excellent display of spring-drop weaners were also well received these making $1040-$1180 ahead as most realized 450-500c/kg.

A limited display of young heifers was eagerly supported as most clocked up per kilogram sales equivalent to the steer counterparts.

Heifers offered in pen lots were rare, nonetheless, prices of $1130 to $1340 for the better grown, 300- 380kg types were not uncommon on the day.
