Temuka calf sale; Fairlie Basin Section 16.04

Close to 1500 head of cattle were yarded in the Fairlie Basin section of the Temuka calf sales last Friday. 

Half of the tally came from one big station and two large lines of Angus steers from this property were particularly popular as 120 head of 180kg managed $670, while 119 calves at 209kg fetched $700. Compared to previous sale, most Angus and Angus-Hereford heavy steers firmed slightly to $700-$900, while light pens under 180kg softened a touch to $400-$650. Angus and Angus-Hereford heifers were stronger and most over 150kg settled into a range of $420-$650.
