There was a small offering of around 200 head of cattle at Taranaki last Wednesday, and dry conditions and a drop in schedules were reflected in results. Heavier cattle continued to sell well, as 3-year Hereford-Friesian steers, 681kg, made $3.01/kg.
 Two-year cattle softened and 403-445kg heifers dropped to $2.68-$2.73/kg. 
Yearlings sold according to quality as 400kg Hereford-Friesian heifers traded at $2.71/kg though lighter types below this.
