ALL categories attracted plenty of interest at the Dubbo store cattle sale last Friday when weaner steers topped at $1070 a head.
People are now prepared to invest in breeding stock and also finish cattle, according to PT Lord Dakin co-principal, Paul Dakin, Dubbo.
“Rain last week and predictions of more to come certainly helped the sale, encouraging restockers to rethink their business,” Mr Dakin said.
Weaner steers averaged $670 and heifers were quoted at $30 dearer with tops at $790.
Yearling steers made up to $1080 and heifers to $760 while cows with calves topped at $1580 and PTIC heifers made up to $1420.
A consignment of 30 Hereford heifers averaged $1368 for Peter and Karen Weller, Kikabul.
