Cattle prices high again at today's Alice auction

Central Australian cattle in excellent condition were sold for more than $3m in the Alice Springs stockyards today, according to stock agent Jock McPherson.
They came from the north-west, north-east and southern parts of the region, with the Fogaty family’s Lucy Creek station topping the sale.
Mr McPherson says top prices for feedlot type cattle at the auction were $1400 a head, cows $1074 and bullocks more than $1600.
There were four major meat buyers, smaller operators, and a large number of feedlot buyers from SA, NSW, Queensland and Victoria, plus one live export company.
It was a “very strong sale,” says Mr McPherson, close to last year’s result.
The next cattle sale will be during the Alice Springs Show in early July.
