A little more than 800 store cattle sold to a mixed market at Taupo, but disappointments were in the minority. A small selection of 365-520kg two-year beef-Friesian steers made $3.06-$3.21/kg. Good quality yearling steers were very keenly fought over. Some 310-335kg autumn-born Simmental-cross steers went for $3.61-$3.84/kg. The heifer market was reasonable – well-marked 255-360kg lines were usually $3.14-$3.26/kg, with other mixed-quality types around to $3.00/kg. Interest in yearling bulls was fairly flat. The largest line, 44 head of 305kg Friesian bulls, made $920 or $3.01/kg.
