Market Report 26 November 2019

26th Nov 2019

Cattle– 2600

Numbers were similar to last sale with cows again in the majority, well over 1,000 head. Other categories were similar to last sale, with plenty of plainer conditioned weaners and yearlings on offer. All the regular buyers attended to a generally cheaper market. Restockers took early weaned calves to a slightly dearer trend. Plainer conditioned 1 and 2 score weaner steers and heifers saw substantially cheaper trends. Light yearling steers to feed saw falls of 14c/kg, with limited pens well bred steers saw a dearer trend to feed on. Light yearling heifers saw a firm to slightly cheaper trend to restockers, down 5c/kg. Grown steers and heifers were in numbers, too few to quote. With the exception of some very light feeder cows, the cow penning bore the brunt of the overall correction in the market. Cows to restockers and feeders saw a decline 5c to 16c, while the medium weight trade cows eased 12c to 20c/kg. The better quality D3 and D4 cows saw cheaper trends of 19 to 28c/kg. Bulls sold to significantly dearer trends, with rises of 8c/kg in the heavy categories

Sheep

Yarding– 4007                              Lambs–  1102                              Sheep– 2905

Numbers increased this fortnight, although quality and weight through the lamb offering was noticeable, with lamb values mostly back on last sale. Grown sheep trends improved, although quality was not up to previous offerings. All the usual buyers attended, with restockers competitive on the plainer drafts. There were limited drafts of new season lambs, although a pen of shorn lambs made to $191/head. Light lambs to restockers saw slightly dearer trends. Light trade lambs sold to firm trends. Trade types sold a cheaper trend of $15/head, with heavy trades also cheaper. Limited heavy lambs made firm to $3/head better, however, lack of weight in the extra heavies saw those categories back. Heavy hoggets made to $180/head. Grown ewes saw dearer trends, light ewes selling to dearer trends of $7/head. Crossbred and Dorper ewes were $12 better and heavy cross ewes and wethers made to $170/head
