A moderate yarding of 600 cattle and 900 sheep greeted sale goers at Rangiuru last Tuesday. Two-year Hereford-Friesian heifers, 404-450kg, earned $3.05-3.10/kg, and Hereford, 253-294kg, $2.89-$2.96/kg. Yearling cattle contributed half the tally and varied in quality. Hereford-Friesian steers were heavier and better lines sold up to $3.16-$3.66/kg, while dairy-beef were $3.16-$3.26/kg. 
Prime steers held at $3.30/kg to $3.47/kg, and dairy-types improved as 640kg Friesian sold for $3.44/kg and Ayrshire, 508kg, $3.21/kg. Heifers all traded over $3.05/kg with Hereford-Friesian, 588kg, at $3.35/kg, followed by Hereford, 484kg, $3.29/kg.
