The bulk of the store lambs offered at Stortford Lodge last Wednesday were from four vendors and included Romney lines from Wairoa. Most blackface mixed-sex lifted, while medium to good terminal ram lambs earned $121-$140 and light Romney rams, $96-$107. Hoggets with lambs-at-foot sold for $117-$125.50 all counted.
Cattle tallies dropped to 290 head, with a mainly beef-dairy yarding presented. Two-year Angus-cross steers, 468kg, fetched $3.41/kg, and yearling Hereford-Friesian heifers, 306-338kg, $3.25-$3.27/kg. A feature line of yearling Simmental-cross heifers, 380kg, sold well at $3.37/kg, while 14 Angus and Angus-Hereford cows with young calves pushed to $1980 per unit.
