Despite the wet and cold weather, the atmosphere at Coalgate last Thursday was very positive in both sections of the sale. Prime cattle sold on a stronger market and very few steers sold outside the $2.92-$3.10/kg range. That included an offering of Friesian, 486-513kg, which made $2.92-$3.00/kg. Beef cows, 670-740kg, firmed to $2.42-$2.50/kg and dairy, 536-665kg, $2.16-$2.29/kg. Only two lines featured in the store cattle section – five R1 Angus mixed-sex, 400kg, at $3.13/kg and nine 304kg Angus-Friesian steers made the same price. Store lamb tallies dropped to 1300 and the lighter end sold to a tough audience at $70-$115. More ewes were offered as scanning brought out dries and a firm market meant top lines of mixed-age reached $200-$271 and 2-tooths, $204-$214. Most of the balance returned $141-$178.
