Strong competition at last Thursday’s Tuakau store cattle sale kept the market strong, PGG Wrightson agent Chris Elliot reported. Steers, 430-580kg, traded at a varied $3.05-$3.50/kg. Weaner heifers, 106-170kg, earned $480-$685.

Light-medium prime steers at last Wednesday’s sale held at $3.00-$3.10/kg, while dairy-bred heifers ranged from $2.50-$2.93/kg. Prime bulls, 620-720kg, fetched $3.05-$3.20/kg.

Results were mixed in the sheep pens last Monday, with medium prime lambs softening to $130-$170, though stores lifted to $100-$140. Top ewes improved to $170-$251, as did medium-good to $120-$170.
