Throughput eased at Taranaki last Wednesday though demand was strong which pushed values upwards across the board. R2 cattle improved at least 10c/kg and the steer average settled at $2.97/kg with top end firming to $3.05-$3.13/kg. In the R1 steer pens, those that ticked boxes fetched $3.12/kg to $3.26/kg and lines with horns or broken markings were around $2.60-$2.67/kg. R1 heifers were mostly bought for $2.30-$2.40/kg. Top-quality Angus mixed-age cows vetted-in-calf to purebred Angus bull and due September 1st achieved $1600.
