The market was strong at the Taupo cattle sale last Thursday. Keen buyers battled to secure a great quality line up of 487 head. R3 steers were sought after with the bulk around $3.10-$3.20/kg though vendors of good-quality 657kg Angus were rewarded reaching $3.26/kg. R3 traditional and Charolais-Angus heifers, 445-5310kg, fetched $2.82-$2.91/kg. A highlight in the R2 steers was 374kg Hereford-Friesian which realised $3.29/kg and the next cut earned $3.13/kg.
