August Cattle Sale Report

Monday, 6 August, 2018

Just over 1000 cattle featured in the monthly store sale at Euroa Saleyards on Wednesday, 1 August, 2018.

Numbers were similar to the July Sale, with ongoing dry conditions drawing more and more cattle right up until the day of sale.

Elders Stock Agent, Joe Allen said the sale was reflective of the recent rainfall and sentiment of producers leading into spring.

“The sale was as a whole cheaper,” Mr Allen explained.

“This was partly quality related, with most of the yarding weighting very light of expectations.

The best feeder rates still remained either side of $3 kg/lw, however the light steers around the 300 kg and under were calculated at $2.80 kg/lw and less reflective of weight and condition,” he said.
