Emerald Market Report Thursday 5th July, 2018

5 Jul 2018

Emerald Agents yarded 521 head at our weekly cattle sale.  Cattle were sourced from as far west as Jericho, back to Alpha, Middlemount as well as local areas.  Selling to a full panel of buyers, the fat market found solid competition due to short supply on the current seasonal conditions.  Lack of number and a smaller buying panel saw the store portion of the sale come back to the rates of two to three weeks ago.
