Throughput lifted to just under 1800 weaners at Frankton last Tuesday. Quality bulls were still in demand, though lesser sorts eased. Heifers were also good shopping.
Hereford-Friesian heifers, 96-105kg, softened to $400-$457, and 77-93kg, $310-$400. Red Hereford-Friesian also eased with 105-143kg down to $360-$405.
Angus-Friesian bulls, 110kg, strengthened to $570, and Hereford-Friesian, 100-115kg, held at $600-$650, though 88-98kg softened to $500-$570.
A large supply of Friesian bulls meant some eased, with 124-146kg discounted to $510-$540, and 90-97kg reduced to $345-$390.
