Muchea store cattle report (MLA):

Yarding: 1,713 (+726). The overall number yarded was up 700 on the last sale (23rd July 2021 08:19 AM)
Yarding: 1,713 (+726).

Muchea Store cattle sale yarded 1,713 head of predominately weaner and yearling cattle that were offered by live weight on a c/kg basis with a 70/30 mix of pastoral and local British breeds. The overall number yarded was up 700 on the last sale, highlighted by possibly the best quality penning of Droughtmaster pastoral cattle ever offered at Muchea. The sale was held in conjunction with Auctions plus and that proved to be a boon with NSW competition putting a base in the sale and purchasing a significant amount of heifers from the mainly lighter end of the pastoral section of the yarding but effectively played second fiddle to WA restockers, keen to purchase quality lines of Droughtmaster cattle. Buyers came from as far as the Murchison, Geraldton, South West and wheatbelt districts, including a Lake Grace grazier who purchased over 200 of the best quality young heifers for breeding. Extra competition came from local WA feedlots again giving their strongest support to the excellent quality pastoral penning.

In the pastoral section, the better bred and very well presented Droughtmaster weaner steers sold from 450c to 582c to average 500c, up 30c/kg. The corresponding yearling steers also sold dearer, averaging 388c/kg. The very good quality 0 to 2 tooth Droughtmaster weaner heifers sold from 406c to 574c to average 504c, up 35c/kg. Slightly older 2 tooth Droughtmaster PTIC heifers sold from 450c to 582c to average 500c, while the 4 tooth PTIC heifers made from 420c to 500c, to average 484c/kg.

In the local section of the sale, demand eased and beef bred weaners sold in line with recent trade sales. The steers sold from 440c to 622c to average 550c, down 30c/kg on the June sale. The corresponding heifers sold from 400c to 556c, down 65c/kg.

Bairnsdale store cattle report (MLA):

Yarding: 487 (-263). Quality declined with a larger proportion of undesirably bred lots amongst a smaller selection of well-bred calves (23rd July 2021 04:04 AM)
Yarding: 487 (-263).

There were approximately 490 head penned representing a decrease of 260 head from the sale of a fortnight ago. Quality declined with a larger proportion of undesirably bred lots amongst a smaller selection of well-bred calves and older cattle. The regular orders from across
Gippsland were operating however there was some limited enquiry from further afield. There was an increase in feedlot competition for suitable lines. Prices were generally firm throughout the sale for like cattle with quality affecting prices in places.

The top of the weaner steers made $2,010/head for 8 Herefords weighing at 406kg, to average 495c/kg. The top of the yearling steers made to $2,450/head for 5 European crosses weighing 582kg or 421c/kg. The top of the weaner heifers made $1,580/head for 6 Angus' weighed at 286kg or 552c/kg. Cows with calves at foot sold from $2,450 to $3,860 to average $3,522/unit.

Griffith sheep report (MLA):

Total 8,000 (-850), lambs 6,500 (-750), sheep 1,500 (-100). Quality improved in a yarding that featured an impressive line-up of extra heavy export (23rd July 2021 01:55 AM)
Total 8,000 (-850), lambs 6,500 (-750), sheep 1,500 (-100).

Just a slight change to lamb and sheep supply this week with 8,000 head yarded. Quality improved in a yarding that featured an impressive line-up of extra heavy export lambs over 30kg cwt. These came within $5 of matching the Griffith price record, selling to a top of $340/head.
The market was $10 to $20/head dearer and more in places, as processors showed keen interest for well-finished trade and export lambs of all breeds. Just a few pens of new season lambs were offered, most being Dorpers from the Western pastoral country.

Neat trade lambs were in limited supply against export grade stock with the lead pens making from $200 to $235/head. Most trade and heavy lambs were averaging between 880c to 920c/kg cwt, with pens of neat domestic types higher at times. Any odd lots of a few head or secondary lambs in rough skins were discounted below these rates. The few pens of new season lambs sold from $178 to $216/head with the lead trade drafts estimated to average from 900c to 930c/kg cwt.

All agents had runs of lambs above $300, with 23 pens selling from $300 to $340 for an overall average of $315/head. These lambs weighed 30 to 40kg cwt, improving to an estimated 880c/kg cwt thanks in part to some very strong sales in this category. Heavy lambs weighing 26 to 30kg cwt were also well supplied, selling from $255 to $274/head.

The sheep yarding was dominated by heavy ewes showing a lot of condition and prices were firm to cheaper on a carcase price basis. Big crossbred ewes made from $220 to $250 with heavy Merino ewes ranging from $190 to $234/head. The few light sheep mostly sold from $136 to $175/head. Most mutton was estimated as costing from 630c to 680c, with limited sales above 700c/kg.

Swan Hill sheep report (MLA) (22/7):

Total 6,500 (-2,000), lambs 5,000 (-2,000), sheep 1,500 (). The bigger lines of lambs were mostly Dorpers and Merinos under 30kg cwt. (22nd July 2021 10:22 PM)
Total 6,500 (-2,000), lambs 5,000 (-2,000), sheep 1,500 ().

It was a plainer and smaller winter yarding of lambs which lacked the extra heavy supplementary fed stock of a fortnight ago. The bigger lines of lambs were mostly Dorpers and Merinos under 30kg cwt. Not all the regular buyers attended or operated fully in a market that performed around quality, with bidding selective on smaller pens or any secondary lambs in long-wool skins. Prices were dearer over medium and heavy trade weight lambs, while quality and numbers affected some of the outcomes in the heavy export run and on light lambs under 20kg cwt.

The selection of light lambs was very mixed. Lambs in the 26 to 30kg category were dearer than a fortnight ago, although there was an estimated carcase price range of 800c to 880c/kg depending on breed and quality. The pick of the trade lambs made from $200 to $235/head, with sales over 900c/kg in places. Most of the heavy export lambs were in small lines of less than 20 head, and sold from $247 to a top of $285/head. A run of Merino lambs off grain sold from $226 to $266/head for the heavier weights. There was a lot of ram lambs in the Dorper section.

Some bigger lines of crossbred ewes were sold after weaning lambs and made from $212 to $230/head. The better lines of Merino ewes made from $188 to $239/head and mutton prices were solid on recent rates at an estimated 640c to 740c/kg cwt across the bulk of sales.

Numbers lifted to 1,800 head at Blackall weekly prime and store. It was a good quality yarding in the prime cattle section with a lift in the supply of heavy grown steers and cows. The return of one major processor led to an increase in prices of 15c to 20c/kg on cows and bullocks.

Wagga sheep report (MLA):

Total 50,450 (-3,250), lambs 41,500 (-1,000), sheep 8,950 (-2,250). Trade lambs were in short supply and quality was either very good or on the leaner (22nd July 2021 07:18 AM)
Total 50,450 (-3,250), lambs 41,500 (-1,000), sheep 8,950 (-2,250).

It was another large winter offering of lambs with the bulk weighing more than 25kg cwt and a large portion were grain assisted. Trade lambs were in short supply and quality was either very good or on the leaner side. In total, there were 1,070 new season lambs. There was a full field of buyers at the rail with domestic buyers noting the demand for lamb had intensified due to the lock downs. The market rallied over all classes with domestic buyers having to step up onto heavy and extra heavy categories to secure supply.

Trade lambs were keenly sought with major processors upping the ante and having to operate across the 24 to 27kg weight ranges to secure supplies. Lambs weighing 22 to 24kg improved $10/head and averaged 980c/kg cwt. New season lambs sold from $214 to $250/head. Merino trade lambs sold to the usual group of buyers and prices lifted $4 to $9/head to average 820c/kg cwt. Restockers and feedlots were very selective paying from $148 to $180/head.

In the heavier lambs, the usual field of export buyers were in attendance along with strong major domestic processor competition. Heavy lambs weighing 24 to 26kg sold $8/head dearer to average 958c/kg cwt. Lambs weighing 26 to 30kg ignited the bidding with prices $23 dearer, averaging 936c, and the largest extra heavy lambs over 30kg attracted all export buyers with most sales making above $305/head to average 885c/kg cwt. Extra heavy Merino lambs averaged 800c/kg cwt.

It was another mixed quality yarding of mutton, with heavy sheep in bigger numbers. Not all buyers attended or operated across heavy or trade categories. Heavy ewes sold to stronger bidding and buying competition intensified for the heaviest runs. Heavy ewes made from $183 to $260/head to average 635c/kg cwt. Heavy Merino ewes over 30kg sold from $200 to $243/head and averaged 646c/kg cwt.

Numbers halved with all categories represented. The quality of the offering was fair to good. There were some very well bred cattle penned, with the older cattle showing the higher condition scores. There was a high level of restocker and feedlot activity, however not all processors participated.

Trends varied in the vealer categories to restockers with the light weights selling to a cheaper trend, breed being a factor. The medium and heavy weight steers sold to dearer trends with the medium weights showing strong gains. Those trends followed into the heifer portion.
Medium and heavy weight yearling steers to feed posted strong gains with increased competition and premiums for selected breeds. There were very few heifers suitable to feed, whilst the heavy trade heifers sold to a dearer trend.

Heavy grown steers sold to dearer trends with feedlots active on steers over 500kg. Heavy weights to processors were slightly dearer with some breed related price change. Well finished grown heifers attracted stronger demand to sell to a dearer trend. Demand was again high in the cow market with trends dearer throughout. There was a small improvement in the higher yielding cows, while the balance showed strong improvement. Restockers were keen to purchase any of the PTIC cows well over prices obtained for cows to process. Heavy bulls sold to a dearer trend.

Total 4,190 (+180), lambs 3,500 (-40), sheep 690 (+220).

Lamb numbers remained steady with a small increase in the sheep. The quality of the lambs was generally good, however there was a variation in condition. The usual processors were in attendance and there was increase in restocker activity with a greater selection on offer.

The demand for restocker lambs was strong with buyers showing interest in lambs also good enough for some processors. There were no similar quality lambs from the previous sale to make a market comparison. Well finished trade weight lambs up to 24kg dressed sold to a slightly dearer market trend, up $2 to $6/head. The heavier weights also saw a mostly dearer trend with similar improvements. There were odd sales that remained firm.

The sheep on offer varied from bare shorn to full wool and showed a variation in condition. Market trends were generally firm to dearer with skin values providing for a large range in price though classes.

The number of cattle yarded was similar to last week for a total of 1,094 head, consisting of a good supply of young cattle, and cows were also in good numbers. The yarding of young cattle consisted mainly of vealers, with only a small penning of yearlings. Quality was fairly mixed with several runs of well bred vealer steers and heifers, however there was a fair number of mixed bred cattle through the sale, and increased numbers of young cattle showing the affects of Winter. Most of the young cattle went to restockers destined for Southern and Western areas
as well as Queensland.

The market improved again this week with restocket vealer steers selling 20c dearer and more in places, with medium weights averaging 620c, while well bred light weights under 200 kg. selling to a top of 786.2c for a average of 688c/kg. Restocker vealer heifers made similar gains to the steers ranging from 490c to 650c/kg. Restocker yearling steers sold to 592c and the heifers topped at 540c/kg.

The yarding of export cattle consisted mainly of cows, along with a small offering of grown steers and heifers. Grown steers toped at 384c to process and feeders sold to 470c/kg. Grown heifers toped at 372c, and 420c/kg to feed. The good yarding of cows was made up of a fair percentage of well finished 3 and 4 score medium weight and heavy cows, along with a fair number of plainer grade cows. Competition was much stronger with most sales improving by 20c/kg. Medium 3 score cows averaged 326c, while heavy 4 score cows sold to a new yard record of 355.2c/kg. Restocker were active in the market purchasing suitable cows to go back to paddock, reaching a top price of 344c/kg.

Consignments remained similar in number and quality, however there was a greater penning of crossbreds this week. The bulk were younger cattle more suited for restocker and feeder orders, while there were some pens also suitable for the butchers in the yarding. The export cattle were limited in supply with cows making up the majority in this section. The market trend was firm to dearer and any cheaper prices were related to breed.

The over 200kg vealer steers to the restockers remained firm and ranged from 496c to 700c/kg. The same weight heifer portion also to the restockers gained 25c and received from 480c to 610c/kg. The yearlings to the lot feeders and restockers remained firm, some breed and quality contributed to price changes in places, with the steers ranging from 452c to 528c/kg. The heifer portion sold from 478c to 494c/kg. The prime high yielding younger cattle to the butcher orders sold to solid competition, with the best vealer reaching 540c/kg.

Quality lifted in the grown steers and bullocks with a much improved offering however it fell away in other categories with numbers having an effect as pricing ranged from firm to easier.

There was a very small yarding of 471 mutton (1,458 less) which was the smallest number for many months. With some buyers reluctant to open their books, prices eased $15 to $35/head with extra heavy sheep most affected.

Restockers bought light lambs from $106 to $142 and light trade weights from $148 to $170/head. Light lambs to process buyers sold from $130 to $140 and light trade weights from $148 to $176/head.

Numbers increased marginally as agents offered 220 live weight and open auction cattle and 160 open auction calves. The offering also included a sizeable draft of pastoral cattle from the Oodnadatta region and these met with strong competition. Suitable processor cattle also met fair to good competition with prices generally firm for type and condition on the previous sale.

The numbers were back, as rain fell throughout the duration of the sale. There were 735 exports and 270 trade cattle offered. It was a very strong market across all grades of cattle, with producers well rewarded. Not all export buyers were present however this failed to halt the soaring prices. Beef cows jumped by a further 12c to 28c, while dairy cows were 20c to 24c/kg dearer. Grown steers were in tight supply and fewer heavy finished steers were about this sale as prices lifted by a further 9c to 13c/kg.

The trade cattle were of mixed quality with very few supplementary fed heavier young cattle. Several lots of the plainer store conditioned cattle went back out to feedlotters and restockers. The vealers ranged from 420c to 540c/kg. The yearling steers ranged from 430c to 532c/kg,
The yearling heifer portion regardless of quality all made between 380c to 515c/kg. The feedlotters paid to 529c, with the majority of the heifers making in the mid to high 400c/kg.

Grown heifers took a big lift today as buyers look to make up the short fall of heavy steers with heavy heifers, they ranged from 401c to 442c/kg. The heavy weight Friesian steers made from 322c to a top of 383c/kg. The cow market was the talk of the day as beef cows made from 340c to 385c/kg. The heavy weight Friesian cows ranged from 285c to a top of 357c/kg for some very large framed well conditioned types.

Numbers more than halved due to the extremely wet conditions. A smaller field of buyers were in attendance. However, the lack of supply caused the market to rally over most categories

A dearer trend was evident from the commencement of the sale with heavy cows surging 22c to average 378c/kg. The middle run of D2 and D3 types were limited, selling from 286c to 334c/kg. Competition was stronger for dairy cows making from 301c to 326c/kg.

There was another small yarding of trade and export cattle with cows making up over 40% of the yarding. With extra butcher competition, trade cattle prices improved 40c/kg to see the highest prices ever seen at this centre and in some cases the butchers had to push into the grown steer section.

The few yearling steers made from 402c to 438c while heifers made from 380c to 446c, to see most averages sit around 420c/kg. The few grown steers made from 344c to 400c/kg.
