A very mixed quality yarding was on offer at Rangiuru last Tuesday. Store steers were mainly Hereford-Friesian, and most sold for $3.02-$3.10/kg. Two-year heifers outnumbered steers 2:1, and the top cut, 381-447kg, earned $2.94-$3.00/kg. A number of two-year Angus bulls were trucked from Gisborne, and the best 13, 436-466kg, made $3.26-$3.30/kg.

Half of the store yarding could be found in one-year pens, where the best steers were Hereford-Friesian, 190-194kg, returned $4.00-$4.02/kg. Thirteen Simmental-cross, 184kg, topped the one-year heifers fetching $3.48/kg.
