There was a small yarding at last Wednesday’s Taranaki cattle sale, with most of the yarding ex-service bulls. At the top end, Angus, Hereford and Red Devon bulls, 587-727kg, sold in a range of $1700-$2110, $2.88-$2.92/kg, with lighter types around $2.70-$2.80/kg. 
Limited yearling steers held, and most earned $2.61-$2.73/kg, while same aged heifers were mostly 262kg Angus-Friesian off the hills, which made $2.65/kg.
