A warm windy day greeted buyers at Feilding last Monday. Steady schedules meant prices for hoggets largely held, though top lines eased. Very heavy types made $199-$218, and heavy, $174-$194. Over 2000 ewes sold and the market was very competitive. A very heavy line reached $250, while other very-heavy types returned $197-$229. Heavy ewes were $182-$194, and good $140-$177.
Of the 60 head of cattle penned, 42 were boner cows. Better quality Friesian, 525-610kg, sold well at $2.26/kg to $2.44/kg, while the biggest pen of the day – 12 at 438kg – sold for $2.05/kg.
