Throughput was in winter mode at Taranaki last Wednesday with just 223 store cattle offered. Weights were a little lighter overall though the market was solid. R2 steers had good demand and the dairy-beef average lifted to $3.05/kg. The lion’s share of R1 steers realised $650-$670 with 263kg Charolais-cross at $860. Poorly marked R1 heifers were discounted with most at $465-$510. Speckle Park-cross and Charolais-Friesian carrying more weight made better money at $640-$670. Read more in your LivestockEye.
