Solid exchange for Millicent Stock Saleyards

A TOTAL of 403 cattle were sold through the Millicent Stock Saleyards on September 26 with solid trade and export demand the key contributor.

According to the figures supplied by Wattle Range Council, bullocks reached an impressive $3.15 per kilogram on market day.

This was followed closely behind by young heifers topping at $3.07 and bulls on $2.90.

Cows were also in high demand, selling for $2.64 per kilogram.
The solid numbers are a positive sign for the livestock facility, which has been slated for closure in June 2020 if numbers do not improve dramatically.

Despite pressure looming, the facility saw more sales during winter this year than the previous calendar year combined.

The Millicent facility’s next market will be held on Thursday.
