WHILE no records were broken, steady demand for the 170 cattle penned by the three agents at Manjimup recently gave a similar result to the last sale at the venue.

The quality varied throughout the offering, with the most consistent and better cattle in processing cows, while beef steers and heifers that were in lesser number, also had some better types.

Beef steers sold to a top of $1377 and 368 cents a kilogram and beef heifers again held their own when reaching $1352, but made an extra two cents a kilogram at 370c/kg.

The better end of the cow market saw a high of $1489 and 214c/kg, while heavy bulls topped at $2077 and 298c/kg for yearling types.

Elders had several Friesian steers on offer and these reached $1403 and 262c/kg.
