COVID-19 may have changed the way saleyards operate for the moment, but it didn't dampen prices at the CTLX weaner sale.
Firm prices and domestic demand have maintained confidence in the NSW cattle job, while the Australian dollar at its lowest against the US dollar lends great hope for exports, once the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 is lifted.
Strong confidence in the cattle market pushed the price of weaners up another $100 a head at some sales in the past week.
Steers may have gained the championship but buyers were keen on the heifers selling at up to $1520 a head at Tamworth Virbac weaner challenge and feature sale last Week.
Weaners were in very strong demand at George and Fuhrmann's annual blue ribbbon weaner sale in Stanthorpe on Thursday.
