ABOUT 1800 weaner steers and 1000 heifers were yarded at the an­nual Glenn Innes blue rib­bon weaner sale. The an­gus breed was well rep­re­sented, as were Bri­tish and Euro­pean-cross lines, al­though weights were down on 2013 fig­ures, as a re­sult of the weather. Buy­ers were drawn from Dubbo, Coon­am­ble, Narrabri, Tam­worth, Roma and south­ern Queens­land, with the mar­ket trend firm. Weaner steers av­er­aged 209c, to a top of 241c/kg lwt. Heifers av­er­aged 160c, with a top price of 180c/kg lwt.
