After a slow start TLSAA President, Patrick Purtle, says that the market finished “a bit stronger” today despite continued hot weather as “competition for the one article” and no increase in supplies helps to maintain the market. Some very good heavy bullocks and feeder steers made good money with one pen sold by PPA weighing 25 590kg and returning over $70 000. The best heifers were those to feed and re-stock and some outstanding vealer calves, straight off their mothers, made $1200 - $1300.
