Quality types sold on par to the previous weeks at the Taranaki cattle fair last Wednesday, though lesser cattle were more difficult to move.  R2 steers made up nearly 40% of the yarding. The top cut of Angus and Charolais-cross sold well to $3.06-$3.14/kg though the lion’s share traded at $2.90-$3.00/kg. R2 heifers sold over a wide range, while better Hereford-Friesian realised $2.71/kg to $2.83/kg, the bulk was mostly $2.50-$2.60/kg. Read more in your LivestockEye.
