TUESDAY’S weekly fat cattle sale in Gunnedah saw 2150 head of cattle up for sale.

The market showed a stronger trend with cows improving on last week’s sale.

Gunnedah stock agent Chris Korff said this weeks market was “a great market.”

“Today’s market saw a quality yarding with a lot of yearling cattle in it," Mr Korff said.

“The market showed a stronger trend throughout, with cows up by up to 20 cents dearer than the previous week.”

The Ray White stock agent said one vendor had a very successful day at the sale.

“There was some re-stocker cows in the market,” he said.

“Lighter black angus cows they went up to 265 cents a kilo and it was a terrific sale for that vendor.”

Mr Koff said recent rain in Queensland had effected current bull prices.

“Today’s bull prices met with a stronger turn due to the increased rain in Queensland,” he said.

“They topped at 238 for your best heaviest bull, with the average around 215.”

“Overall it was a great market here today in Gunnedah.”

The weekly Gunnedah cattle sale kicks off again next Tuesday February 13.
