It was a mixed market for the 500 cattle at Feilding. Capital stock, 7-8 year, in-calf Angus cows, 590-710kg, sold for $1290-$1555, $2.20/kg. R3 traditional steers, 550-580kg, were $3.15-$3.35/kg, while 360-450kg dairy-cross and mixed-quality R2 steers were mostly $2.70-$2.90/kg. Some R3 traditional heifers, 555kg, made $3.05/kg, while 320-440kg R2 dairy-cross heifers were anywhere between $2.45/kg and $2.80/kg depending on quality.

Prices fell on the 11,000 store lambs. For the males, heavies were mainly $175-$185, down to $155-$170 on the good lines, $145-$155 for the mediums, with $115-$135 covering the bulk of the lighter pens. On the ewe lamb, heavy sorts were $165-$185, good types $145-$160, mediums $125-$145 with $110-$120 for the lights. Good quality, high-scanning ewes went well at $219 plus, but many were medium-type, lower-scanning lines which were knocked back to $150-$180.
