Record prices for prime hoggets were hit at Canterbury Park at the previous sale but could not be beaten last Tuesday. Quality was wider spread, with 60% medium to good types at $180-$199. Few store hoggets were penned, with a third mixed-sex Merino that made $123-$156. Heavy traditional types fetched $120-$159.
Quality was mixed in the store cattle pens, especially in two-year lines as none surpassed $3.00/kg; the best-selling were Hereford-Friesian steers, 353-405kg, $2.84-$2.91/kg. Yearlings were better quality and traditional steers, 250-385kg, traded for $3.27/kg.
There was better quality available in the prime section where a pair of Charolais steers, 603kg, made $3.50/kg, with other Charolais at $3.33-$3.36/kg. Most beef-cross sold in the range of $3.10-$3.20/kg, while lesser lines were generally still over the $3.00/kg mark.
