Prime cattle sold well at Rangiuru last Tuesday and the decent tally mostly traded within three distinct groups. The largest was a collection of Hereford-Friesian steers, 637-723kg, that achieved $3.18-$3.23/kg while same breed heifers, along with a few Angus, 488-515kg, returned $3.00-$3.08/kg range. Friesian cows mostly earned $1.89-$1.92/kg. In the leadup to spring there was only a small yarding of store cattle. R1 Hereford-Friesian provided a big proportion and there was plenty of interest for the heaviest steers that made $840-$1000 and 180-235kg heifers that were $690-$705.
