No records, but consistent prices a standout
FOLLOWING the hype of the first two days of weaner sales, buyers and sellers filled the gallery of the Hamilton Livestock Exchange on Wednesday for the highly anticipated Hereford weaner sales.
The independent agents yarded 1492 Hereford steers with an average weight of 338kg, again the same weight as the same sale in 2017.
Sale-o was called and the auction began a bit slower than the days before, with auctioneers having to work harder for their bids.
The 10-15c premium for EU-accredited cattle flowed from the blacks to the red sale.
