It was a small cattle sale at Coalgate last Thursday, with a combined 280 head presented. The bulk were yearling heifers; better lines of Angus, 171-201kg, fetched $3.39-$3.48/kg with mid-range Angus, 165-205kg, mostly $3.02-$3.03/kg. A collection of Gelbvieh sold for $2.94/kg to $3.23/kg.  Heifers contributed a third of the prime tally, and the best-selling Hereford-Friesian, 498-603kg, traded at $3.06-$3.13/kg.
Close to a third of the prime hogget tally were very-heavy types that traded for $220-$242, with 1000 heavy hoggets making $190-$208. The balance were smaller types, with most $170-$189. New season prime lambs sold for $160-$224.
Ewe prices rose, with the top end $200-$236, and heavy types $180-$198.
The store section featured 117 new season lambs that earned $131, and 250 hoggets sold for $93-$126.
