Primarily yearling cattle were entered at Temuka last Thursday, with solid support for good dairy-beef steers, while heifers and anything of lesser quality was harder going due to the quantity available. Angus-Friesian steers made up to $3.23/kg, with $2.87-$2.99/kg typical for the better 219-274kg lines. A few Angus & Angus-Hereford heifers, 294kg, made $3.30/kg but overall only a small proportion of heifer pens sold above $3/kg. Some Friesian bulls made $3.01/kg, with the bulk $2.46/kg to $2.71/kg.
