Friesian bull vendors were rewarded at the Taranaki Dairy-Beef Weaner Fair last Thursday, as prices lifted $20-$55 due to outside competition. The better end at 126-136kg, sold to $570-$615. Hereford-Friesian followed suit and light lines traded up to $6.53-$6.70/kg. Smaller buying orders for heifers however eased the beef-Friesian market.
Speckle Park-cross entries grew and proved very popular. Bulls, 97-141kg, sold for $640-$700, while steers, 121-146kg, made $650-$705 and heifers, 99-142kg, $530-$565.
