EMERALD CATTLE SALE MARKET REPORT – THURSDAY 27TH JUNE 2024

  • Yarding Numbers: 460
  • Location: Emerald
  • Date: June 27, 2024

Emerald agents yarded 460 head at todays sale. The smaller yarding was largely attributed to the rain fallen in the past 2 days, as well as the upcoming Weaner & Feeder sale next Tuesday.

Quality on offer was fairly mixed but the recent rainfall has put pressure on the short-term supply of slaughter cattle, creating a firmer market for categories on offer.

Heavy Steers over 550kg topped at 272c/kg to average 262c/kg, Steers 500-550kg topped at 271c/kg and averaged 256c/kg, Heavy Feeder steers 400-500kg, very limited in numbers, reached a top of 258c/kg to average 250c/kg, while too few Steers under 400kg to quote.

Heavy Heifers over 400kg reached 248c/kg to average 238c/kg, Feeder heifers 350-400kg reached 234c/kg and averaged 225c/kg, Heifers’ in the 280-350kg category topped at 234c/kg and averaged 233c/kg, white Heifers were too few to reliability quote.

Cows over 520kg topped at 241c/kg and averaged 215c, while Cows 450-520kg reached 230c/kg and averaged 194c. Best of the Heavy Bulls over 600kg sold to a top of 234c/kg.
