SINGLETON FAT CATTLE SALE 13/12/2017
Mick Dillon from Dillon and Sons reported a total yarding of 945 head at Singleton this week, 15 head less than last week’s sale.
Numbers were steady as the cattle wind up for another year. Quality was mixed with plenty of young cattle suitable for restocker and feed lot orders. All the regular buyers were there competing in a predominately cheaper market.
In the trade yarding prices for restockers were back with the best angus weaners reaching $3.76 a kilo while the pick of the remaining breeds topped at $3.68.
Prices for the pick of young butcher calves slipped slightly reaching $3.36 a kilo while grain assisted yearlings purchased by processors topped at $3.32.
In the limited export yarding prices were back with grown steers reaching $2.60 a kilo while grown heifers topped at $2.66.
Prices for cows were steady reaching $2.22 a kilo while the grown bulls topped at $2.20.
Dillon and Sons would like to thank everyone who has supported the cattle sales throughout the 2017 and look forward to a bigger and better year in 2018. Singleton Fat Cattle Sale will recommence on the 3rd of January.
