Tamworth store sale steers peak at $1710 as market softens with quality | The Land



A colourful yarding of just under 1900 head featuring large lines of Queensland-born trade cattle, Fresian calves and Bos indicus infused steers greeted buyers at the Tamworth store sale on Friday.

The peak of the market was back on the previous fortnight, reflective of the quality on offer, but Davidson Cameron agent Chris Gooch opened the sale and alerted those in attendance that wide spread showers earlier in the week had created some great opportunities.

Yearling steers were limited with most weaners selling from $1200 to $1400 and heifers highly sought after from $1300 to $1500.

The top of the steer market reached $1710 compared with $1830 the fortnight before for a pen of 12-month-old Braford steers from Westside Pastoral.

Davidson Cameron and Co agent Hamish Fauchon of Gunnedah caught up with Bruce Danson, Mentone, Narrabri who purchased this pen of 14 steers for $1560/hd at Tamworth on Friday.
