Firmer sale

Recent rises in the meat schedule and buyer interest from outside the district led to firmer prices for the 1181 cattle offered in the monthly cattle fair at the Matawhero saleyards yesterday.

The vetted-in-calf, mixed-aged cows in the foreground (pen two) from Hinenui Genetics at Muriwai sold for $1440, and in pen three next door, some rising two-year steers from Nuhaka sold for $1625. Full sale report in Focus on the Land on page 14 today.
