In what was described as an "unreal" sale, feature lines of breeders’ spring-drop steer weaners commanded prices between 400-465c/kg while heifers pulled rates mainly between 360-460c/kg.
A limited and scrappy display of yearling-off and grown steers were “wintery” in appearance and failed to draw the interest of major feeders who watched on intently.
