Strong results continue at weaner sales

AFTER “unbelievable” record breaking sales on Monday and Tuesday, day three and four of the Hamilton weaner sales saw cattle continue to perform well, with independent agents yarding 2208 hereford and mixed-sex euro weaners on Wednesday.

At the opening of proceedings, LMB Livestock agent, Bernie Grant complimented the display of cattle and said “they present themselves very well”.

The top price overall was a massive 580c/kg with some cattle going for as high as $2101p/hd, and the heaviest for the day was 465kg.

The average price over all agencies on Wednesday was 501c/kg and $1682p/hd, with an average weight of 335kg, which was slightly lighter than the first few days.

“It was a pretty strong turnout with some incredible prices,” Mr Grant said.

“Once we got into the euro, the heifers were making the same amount as the steers.”
