Last Tuesday’s weaner yarding was more manageable than the deluge the week prior at Frankton. A good bench of buyers was on the job and beef-dairy lines had solid interest.

As heifers were sold outside there were no weights available, but some medium autumn-born Hereford-Friesian earned $455-$580. Autumn-born Friesian bulls, 211kg, held at $700.

Hereford-Friesian steers, 123-129kg, improved to $700-$715.

Angus-Friesian bulls, 102-117kg, traded at $400-$480, while Hereford-dairy, 102kg, lifted to $520. Buyers were selective with their bids throughout the Friesian bulls and results were mixed, as 124-148kg softened to $500-$535, and 90-94kg eased to $370-$445.
