The store auction at Temuka last Thursday mostly featured a mix of beef-Friesian with a supporting cast of traditional breeds. Just over 180 R2 heifers were topped by Angus, 354-459kg, that sold from $2.97/kg to $3.10/kg. Hereford-Friesian, 369-398kg, earned $2.76/kg to $2.90/kg while 401-447kg were priced at $2.97-$3.07/kg. A collection of Angus and Angus-Hereford mixed-sex, 422kg, topped the whole section at $3.27/kg whilst Friesian bulls performed above expectations. A pen of R1 Simmental-cross steers, 271kg, made $870 while their 273kg sisters topped the heifer section at $705. Read more in your LivestockEye.
