Tamworth Prime Cattle Market Highlight
Mon 13th February, 2017

Total yarding - 1120 (1263)

(NB. Figures in brackets are prices/numbers from our last sale)

Numbers were down slightly this week with the heat undoubtedly a contributing factor after a very tough weekend across the entire region and surrounding areas.  The National Livestock Reporting Service (NLRS) quoted mostly cheaper trends for most categories except good quality light and medium weight yearling heifers which were “close to firm”.

Today marked the end of a big week at TRLX that saw four sales in 6 days, almost 7000 cattle sold and gross sales of around $8M. With no store sale this week we’ll be back at it again next Monday 20th and Friday 24th as the countdown starts for our weaner sales with our April 7th Virbac Weaner Challenge, an additional feature sale to be announced for Friday 5th May and the first runs of weaners expected around our 10th March sale.
