A moderate yarding of cattle had something for everyone at Rangiuru last Tuesday. Charolais-Friesian, 418kg, accounted for the lion’s share of the R2 heifers and fetched $2.68/kg, although the most money was paid for a small pen of 450kg Hereford-Friesian that earned $2.89/kg. The R1 pens housed a mixture of breeds and quality. The only steer pen was 188kg Charolais that made $500 while bulls were often either traditional or Hereford-Friesian, 208-241kg, that fetched $510-$660. Hereford-Friesian stood out in the heifer pens, particularly a 211kg pen that made $660. Sheep throughput was low and prime lambs were the main highlight and traded at $116-$193.
