Market Report 12 October 2021

12th Oct 2021

Cattle– 706

Numbers increased to offer a very good penning of heavy cows, as well as a good balance of yearling cattle and a limited offering of weaners. Restockers attended in strength to compete on both steer and heifer weaners. There was a reduction in quality for drafts of young cattle and this had an affect on some results. The regular buyers attended and operated with southern cow orders still in place. Light steer weaners sold to significant rises as did the heifers drafts. It must be said that very young, early weaned heifer calves with little weight did sell to a top of 820c/kg. Light yearling steers also sold to much dearer trends, with restockers again playing a big part. Medium weight feeder steers sold to a slight rise, however, roles reversed with quality affected sales through the heavy weights seeing a cheaper trend. Restockers again were strong through sales of light heifers to post strong gains. A slip in quality through the medium feeders saw that category sell to a cheaper trend. Roles again reversed to see heavy feeder heifers sell to dearer trends. Grown steers to process sold to firm trends, the heifer portion cheaper. Medium weight cows sold to dearer trends. Heavy 3 score cows up to 11c better, conversely the 4 score drafts were back slightly to top at 395c/kg. The best bull topped at 332c/kg.

Sheep

Yarding– 879                 

Numbers reduced considerably to offer a very good penning of heavy lambs in particular. These presented in well finished pens, with the lighter trade portion slightly back in condition. Grown ewes were mostly in the medium weight class, wethers heavier. All the regular buyers attended. Light trade lambs sold to a cheaper trend. Trade lambs sold firm to slightly dearer. Heavy trade lambs sold significantly dearer, as did the heavy lambs $15/head better. Lambs in excess of 30kg/cwt were up to $24/head better. Hoggets were cheaper in keeping with a weight differential. Very few sheep to quote with heavy crossbred ewes to $230, the heavier wether portion $180 to $250/head.
