Last Wednesday’s Taranaki cattle fair penned just under 1000 head of cattle, and the market was strong. Two-year steers sold well with the majority earning above $3.15/kg, while most of the heifers sold in a range of $3.04-$3.13/kg. One-year steers above 288kg sold for $960-$1050, while the average heifer was 215kg and made $545, $3.02/kg. One-year Charolais-cross and Shorthorn-cross, 206-248kg, fetched $720-$740, $3.56-$3.59/kg.
