Heifer prices hold firm, bull prices stronger

Agents yarded 733 head at the Northern Rivers Livestock Exchange regular prime sale on Wednesday, June 7. 

Quality was mixed, although there were several pens of well presented young cattle through the sale. 

The yarding of young cattle consisted mainly of vealers and weaners, along with a few pens of light yearlings.
