Buyers were not put off by changeable weather at Wellsford last Monday, with the 558 yarding well met by a moderate buying bench.

Two-year beef-dairy sold well and Hereford-Friesian steers, 441-482kg, improved to $3.24-$3.25/kg, outdoing a traditional bred line, 377kg, at $3.02/kg. Hereford-dairy heifers, 327-419kg, traded at $2.87-$2.98/kg.

Yearling Hereford-dairy steers, 250-315kg, managed $2.96-$3.03/kg. Hereford-Friesian heifers, 251-263kg, softened to $2.83-$2.91/kg, though Hereford-dairy, 255-336kg, held at $2.94-$2.95/kg.
