A seasonal drop in store volume took some of the pressure off the sale at Rangiuru last Tuesday, though overall it was softer.  Bidding was very selective from local buyers, though there were pockets of strength, with a line of R2 Hereford-Friesian heifers, 422kg, achieving $2.64/kg.
Weaner results were variable and Angus steers, 167kg, made $595, and heifers, 132kg, $410. Most other steers traded at $400-$465.
Boner Friesian cows, 540-660kg, firmed to $1.71/kg.
