There was a small offering of cattle available at Coalgate last Thursday. The store section ticked over without much fuss and included 399kg R2 Angus steers that traded at $2.66/kg while 341kg mixed-sex managed $2.35/kg. Prime lambs continued their strong form and there were plenty amongst the top end at $200-$222 while the rest mostly earned $150-$199. Close to 30% of the ewes achieved $205-$292 with the rest evenly spread out from $114-$196. A third of the store lambs managed $130-$158 followed by the lion’s share at $90-$129 and lighter types $70-$85. Read more in your LivestockEye.
