Nearly 1200 cattle took some time to sell at Stortford Lodge last Wednesday. In general prices softened, though by varying degrees. Two-year traditional heifers, 353-427kg, made $2.93-$3.02/kg, and Friesian bulls, 460-530kg, lost 19-26c/kg to finish at $3.32-$3.36/kg. Yearling Hereford-Friesian heifers held value at an average of $965, $3.29/kg.
There was a market adjustment for lambs, with prices back on recent levels. A few small lines reached $132-$161, but most were medium types. Small cryptorchid, male and mixed-sex lambs made $73-$104.
