OFF THE RAILS FROM GLENN WEIR

 

LISMORE CATTLE SALE MARKET

Off the Rails by Glenn Weir

1100 cattle were sold at the popular Lismore Store Cattle Sale on Saturday 21.11.2020.

With the local area drying off and prices high producers are making the easy decision to sell.

The sale kicked off with a good line up of heavy feeder steers.

Steers with milk & 2 teeth, weighing either side of 500 kg.  Sold from $4.08 to $4.30/kg for returns of $1,800 to $2,185.

Most heavy yearling steers sold in the $4.30 to $4.70/kg range returning $1,450 to $1,560.

Medium & light weaner steers sold to strong competition with lines of British & Euro bred calves selling from $5.30 to $6.62/kg.
