A wave of weaner cattle came to market at Rangiuru last Tuesday. Attendees were very keen to get buy and R2 Hereford-Friesian steers, 335-345kg, sold well at $2.46-$2.49/kg while Hereford-Friesian heifers, 361-390kg, made $2.16/kg to $2.33/kg.
Weaner results were good, and the volume was easily absorbed by a large bench of buyers. Several lines of steers exceeded $3.00/kg, with Angus & Angus-Hereford, 177kg and 230kg, popular at $500 and $710 respectively. There was plenty of interest in Angus and Angus-Hereford heifers, and over 80 in the 185-232kg range earned $470-$595.
