Bairnsdale store cattle report (MLA):

Yarding: 1,810 (+823). Quality was very good with all weights and grades represented and most lots presented (26th November 2021 05:13 AM)
Yarding: 1,810 (+823).

There were approximately 1,800 head penned representing an increase of 830 head from the sale of a fortnight ago. Quality was very good with all weights and grades represented and most lots presented in forward condition reflecting the favourable conditions across the supply area recently. The buyers gallery was filled with competitors and spectators and competition strengthened as the regular group operated along with orders from across Victoria. There was limited enquiry from processors or feedlots. The stronger competition drove prices upward with gains in the order of $150/head across most young cattle, while cows with calves at foot sold $130/unit cheaper on average for a more mixed selection.

The top of the weaner steers made $2,540/head for 25 Angus calves weighed at 389kg which equates to 653c/kg. The top of the yearling steers made $2,850 for 21 Angus weighed at 503kg or 567c while older steers reached $2,910/head for 10 Herefords weighed at 677kg or 430c/kg. The top of the weaner heifers made $2,380/head for 6 Angus weighed at 402kg or 592c/kg. The top of the yearling heifers made $2,240/head for 10 Hereford weighed at 502kg or 446c/kg. The cows with calves at foot sold from $2,040 to $4,675 to average $3,318/unit.

Wagga sheep report (MLA):

Total 32,500 (-5,500), lambs 21,500 (-3,500), sheep 11,000 (-2,000). Audio available. Quality across new season heavy export lambs was very good (25th November 2021 07:12 AM)
Total 32,500 (-5,500), lambs 21,500 (-3,500), sheep 11,000 (-2,000).

Heavy rain over the past few days impacted significantly on numbers. Quality across new season heavy export lambs was very good however, supplies were limited. Young trade lambs were in reduced numbers and quality was quite good with most showing plenty of finish. Not all buyers attended or operated fully. The smaller group of buyers resulted in a slightly weaker market.

Not all domestic buyers operated fully in the market which caused competition to fluctuate. Prices generally softened $2/head. Lambs 21 to 24kg sold from $175 to $217/head to average 841c/kg cwt. Extra heavy young lambs sold to fluctuating competition. Extra heavy lambs sold from $244 to $268, while the shorn extra heavy young lambs recorded a top price of $270/head. There was a mixed selection of young lambs suitable for restockers. Store lambs returning to the paddock with some weight and frame sold from $130 to $185/head.

It was a mixed quality yarding of mutton that was offered to a small group of buyers. Heavy crossbred ewes sold to solid competition from only two buyers. Heavy ewe mutton averaged 567c to 594c/kg cwt. Trade sheep were in reasonable supply averaging 571c/kg cwt. Heavy Merino wethers were few selling at $196 to $220/head.

There was a reduced penning following some large rainfall over the past week and more forecast. All categories were represented in a mixed quality yarding. The condition of the cattle was fair to good and most of the regular buyers were in attendance.

Restockers showed great confidence in the market and with a large body of feed, bid strongly on most of the young cattle. This resulted in dearer trends throughout with significant improvement through the steers. There was some breed and quality related price change in light weight yearling heifers, however trends were dearer through all weight classes.

Heavy grown steers to process sold to dearer trends of 10c to 15c/kg under strong competition. Well finished grown heifers to process mostly sold to a slightly cheaper trend, quality was a factor. There was an isolated dearer sale. The cow market was firm to slightly dearer with some variation for quality. The heavy bulls met very strong competition resulting in a significantly dearer market trend.

At Hamilton there was another large offering of 45,500 lambs. Quality ranged from very good down to plain with some lambs still lacking sunshine and pasture that is too tall which comes with the excellent pasture season. This was more evident in the younger light weight lambs.

Total 49,967 (+16,797), lambs 38,512 (+14,609), sheep 11,455 (+2,188).

There was dramatic increase in numbers of new seasons lambs at Ballarat, where agents yarded 38,512. There was a full field of buyers and the quality of the offering was very good however some lambs are showing signs of going to wool especially on the lighter end.

Total 6,500 (+1,400), lambs 2,500 (+100), sheep 4,000 (+1,300). Quality was very mixed in all categories, with well finished trade (24th November 2021 05:35 AM)
Total 6,500 (+1,400), lambs 2,500 (+100), sheep 4,000 (+1,300).

Lamb supply remained static at 2,500 head, while more sheep and hoggets came forward with 4,000 penned. Quality was very mixed in all categories, with well finished trade and heavy lambs scarce. There was a bigger component of very small Merino and crossbred lambs in the yarding. The sheep run also had several larger lines of plain and light ewes. Not all the usual buyers attended and demand was weaker than a fortnight ago, due in part to the drop in quality. Agents quoted the sale as $10 to $15/head easier across most grades of lamb and mutton.

Very few heavy lambs were available with prices reaching a top of $220/head. Some early shorn young lambs that suited domestic orders received some of the best attention to make $198/head. The bulk of the crossbred lambs sold from $170 to $210/head, with agents estimating a broad carcase price range of 750c to 880c/kg cwt depending on type and quality. Auctioneers said some of the very light store lambs still sold strongly in comparison. There was a number of very light and small Merino lambs that made from $77 to $110/head.

Competition for mutton also eased. The heaviest ewes sold from $170 to a top of $220/head. Several lines of light Merino ewes lacking fat cover sold from $90 to $135/head.

Please note that this market was reported remotely without the physical presence of an NLRS Livestock Market Officer.

Total 3,530 (+780), lambs 2,140 (+170), sheep 1,390 (+610).

There was an increase in supply with both lambs and sheep affected. The quality of lambs was mixed with a few pens of well finished new season lambs available. There were quite a few Merino lambs penned with quality and condition also varying greatly. All the regular buyers were in attendance.

Demand was strong through most lamb classes. A single large pen of very light weight young lambs attracted strong restocker competition to post significant improvements. All classes of young lambs to processors sold to dearer trends with buyers showing a preference for the young lines. There was varying trends for old lambs to process, which were firm to dearer for the most part, with some weight related change in the heavier weight classes.

There were varying trends through the mixed quality and condition penning of sheep. Restocker activity on some of the light and medium weight Merino ewes helped lift prices for some categories. The better condition medium and heavy weight sheep to process saw a mostly firm market trend with weight variations contributing to price change.
