AGENTS yarded 1250 cattle at this week’s Leongatha store sale with the overall quality of the yarding not quite as good as previous sales.
The best quality pens of grown steers and well-bred weaners that came forward continued to receive premium prices from the regular feedlot buyers and South Gippsland Bullock fatteners and graziers.
All other cattle sold to strong competition from local graziers with many buyers willing to put a few in the paddock before spring comes.
A feature line of 60 Joined Angus PTIC heifers sold to very strong demand making to a top of $1620 to average $1496 with most of them being purchased by buyers from far East Gippsland.
