Demand eased a little at Kaikohe driven by low pasture growth, PGG Wrightson agent Vaughan Vujcich reported. Around 550 head was offered this week where R2 beef-cross steers sold to $2.75-$2.80/kg and R2 beef bulls $2.60-$2.65/kg. Better R2 heifers achieved $2.60-$2.65/kg though dairy types were typically $2.00/kg to $2.20/kg. R1 beef steers were secured for $3.00/kg to $3.20/kg and smaller whiteface $3.40/kg.
