A store cattle and autumn-born weaner sale took place at Kaikohe last Wednesday, and dry conditions meant buyers were cautious, PGG Wrightson agent Vaughan Vujcich reported. Yearling traditional and beef-dairy steers eased 5c/kg to $3.20-$3.30/kg, and better beef-cross heifers, $2.85-$3.00/kg.

Autumn-born weaner bulls and steers had a good following, though heifer interest was limited. Second cuts of Angus & Simmental steers traded at $750-$800, and Friesian bulls, 180kg, $750.

Top traditional and exotic heifers managed $800-$900, and lesser types $560-$750. Hereford-Friesian, 170kg, realised $570.
