There were just over 450 head at the Matawhero cattle fair last Tuesday. R2 cattle firmed and heavier types, 425-430kg, fetched $2.80-$2.87/kg and 330kg $3.06/kg. In the R2 heifer pens a large portion came from the hill country which is still on the lighter end of pasture levels. Most were 315-330kg Angus which fetched $2.68-$2.71/kg with the balance at $2.44-$2.47/kg. Mixed-age cows mostly made $2.00-$2.10/kg. Read more in your LivestockEye.
