Carcoar recorded another strong store sale on Friday, with 2344 good quality, mostly black cattle yarded, light weaner steers exceeding 500 cents per kilogram once again.

Nutrien Bathurst's Bill Gilbert said there wasn't many cows and calves yarded but what was there attracted good competition.

Account J Cantrill, Nashdale, Orange sold seven Angus cows and calf units for $3225, the cows were four to five years-old, pregnancy-tested-in-calf back to an Angus bull, with four to six month-old calves at foot.

Ross Sharwood, Trunkey Creek offered six Angus first calvers and calves for $3025.

Cows sold for up to $2000 for seven Angus offered by Campbell Wills, Mandurama.

Steers weighing 300kg and above made from $1200 to $1690 and there was only two runs of steers weighing more than 350kg last week.

RN and CMC Walkom, The Waratah, Blayney offered 40 Angus weaner steers by Te Mania and Keroo bulls, weighing an average of 344kg for $1510.

A run of 25 Angus steers weighing 300kg made $1400, they were offered by PA and EJ Reen, Meadow Flat.

Pens weighing from 250 to 300kg made from $1010 to $1370, Mr Gilbert said they made up to 480-490c/kg.

While, steers weighing under 250kg sold for up to 500c/kg.

Mr Gilbert said heifers were a fraction cheaper than the last sale but they still made up to around 485c/kg, most made from $820 to $1400.

WB and ME Whiteley, Cudal topped the heifer section, their 21 Angus weaners, weighing 312kg, selling for $1400.

Mr Gilbert said there were some professional buyers from Southern NSW and Northern NSW present, but the sale was missing a couple of the usual purchasers from Victoria.

"The sale was fairly well patronised by all the agents too, they had orders to fill," Mr Gilbert said.
