Emerald Combined Agents yarded 1126 head in their weekly Fat & Store Sale with one draft from the Collinsville area and the balance all local cattle. Following on from the June Weaner & Feeder Sale on Tuesday this sale consisted of predominately meatworks cattle that sold to a rising market and achieved some very good results for vendors. Steers +550kgs sold to 390c/kg and average 353c/kg. Steers 500 – 550kgs sold to 393c/kg and average 350c/kg. Steers 400 – 500 kgs sold to 390c/kg and average 350c/kg.

Too few lighter steers yarded to report, whilst meatworks, feed lotters and live export buyers competed strongly on the heavier end of the male section. Cows +520kgs sold to 291c/kg and average 272c/kg. Cows 400 – 500kgs sold to 277c/kg and average 246c/kg. Cows 300 – 400kgs sold to 243c/kg and average 230c/kg. Heifers +400kgs sold to 373c/kg for good feeder types whilst heavy fat heifers sold to 327c/kg. Heifers 350 – 400kgs sold to 355c/kg and averaged 302c/kg.  Heifers 280-350kgs sold to 340c/kg and averaged 283c/kg. These lower averages in heifers are attributed to a line of lesser quality heifers with too few weaner heifers yarded to quote. Live export and meatworks competed strongly on bulls with Bulls topping at 354c/kg to average 320c/kg overall.
