Of the 92 cattle penned at Feilding last Monday, 54 were boner cows or heifers that were selectively bought. No steers attended but there was spirited bidding for prime heifers as Hereford-Friesian and Speckle Park heifers, 455-533kg, all made $3.15-$3.21/kg.
Ewes continued to come forward in increasing numbers, with a total of 4549 offered. A third were very heavy types that sold at $192-$233, while heavy lines earned $175-$190. The top new season lambs lifted to $192-$210 and heavy, $163-$189. Hogget quality was lower and prices fell; the best condition lines sold for $220, with the next cut $192-$206 and heavy, $170-$182.
