Short-term cattle sold to strong demand at the Temuka store cattle sale last Thursday. A large portion were traditionally bred types which were favoured by buyers. The R2 traditional steer average was $3.01/kg with heavier types over 409kg able to reach $3.03-$3.08/kg. The R1 dairy-beef steer average jumped almost 30c/kg to $2.86/kg. Good quality R2 traditional heifers sold above their brothers at $3.07-$3.10/kg with the average $2.84/kg. There wasn’t much difference in the top end between R1 steers and heifers and both sold in a range of $3.00-$3.05/kg. Read more in your LivestockEye.
