The cattle fair at Taranaki last Wednesday had a grass market feel to it, with all classes and types selling at improved levels.
Two-year Hereford-Friesian steer weights varied over a 100kg spread from 400-500kg, with most 480kg and better making $3.11-$3.21/kg, while others ranged from $3.22/kg to $3.49/kg. Thirteen Charolais-cross, 415kg, managed $3.54/kg, and a small heifer yarding was consistent at $3.07-$3.16/kg for most.
On a per head basis yearling heifers largely traded on a firm market at $780-$920, though $/kg prices varied significantly.
