Much of the action at last Thursday’s Temuka store cattle sale was centred around 160 R2 Devon, Devon-cross and Hereford-Devon heifers shipped from Pitt Island. Of these, the lighter end at 259-302kg typically fetched $1.95-$2.02/kg while 305-366kg managed $2.11-$2.20/kg. Some 225-271kg R1 Angus-Friesian and Hereford-Friesian steers made good returns of $630-$680 with the next most numerous breed Speckle Park, 127-136kg, that made $345-$450. A pen of 272kg Hereford-Friesian made the most per head amongst the heifers at $600 followed by 170-222kg traditional pens that earned $450-$550. Read more in your LivestockEye.
