Yarding: 800 (-77)
MLA audio not provided
"It was a smaller yarding for the final cattle sale at Swan Hill for this year. Just over 800 cattle went through the ring and quality was very mixed for both breed type and condition. There were a lot of secondary cattle on offer, with well bred and finished stock in the minority. Export demand was subdued, and prices for cows and grown steers showed a 10c to 30c/kg correction on a fortnight ago. The best trade weight yearlings and vealers, most off grain, sold reasonably well to still reach a market top of 325c/kg lwt. But competition for secondary young cattle was very flat and these sold at cheaper rates.
There was just a handful of sales to domestic processors above 300c, to a top of 325c/kg for grain assisted Limousin steers weighing 460kg. The better bred and shaped young steers and heifers to suit feedlot orders sold from 270c to 310c/kg lwt, with most of these being European- cross or Angus. Plainer young cattle met a tougher market, with a lot of heifers and steers making from 220c to 265c/kg lwt. The most secondary calves, lacking size and often crossbred, sold down to 104c/kg at times.
Competition for cows was a lower levels, the best heavy beef pens selling from 220c to a top of 240c/kg lwt. The selection of grown steers was very limited for quality, a few bullocks weighing over 600kg selling to 285c/kg. There was a reasonable number of Friesian steers in the yarding, with the better presented types from 215c to 235c/kg lwt."

It was another mostly plain quality yarding with good numbers of cows and grown heifers along with large numbers of bobby calves as the sell off continues. There were odd pens to suit the trade buyers and feeders along with only a couple of pens of well finished grown steers. Not all the regular feeder buyers were operating due to insufficient weight in the bulk of the cattle.
Young cattle to the trade were firm with the prime heifer yearlings selling from 255c to 279c/kg. Feeder steers and heifers finished 6c to 10c/kg cheaper. The feeder steers sold from 240c to 306c while the feeder heifers sold from 200c to 274c/kg. Young cattle to the restockers were up to 20c/kg dearer. The restocker steers sold from 180c to 315c while the young restocker heifers sold from 75c to 278c/kg.
Grown steers were 3c cheaper with the prime medium weights selling from 270c to 275c/kg. Grown heifers were 5c dearer with the better classes selling from 230c to 269c/kg. Cows were 8c to 13c/kg cheaper. 1 and 2 score cows sold from 70c to 182c while the better 3 and 4 scores sold from 170c to 230c with the prime heavy weights averaging 215c/kg. Good numbers of cows sold to the feeders and restockers at mostly firm to dearer rates with the restockers paying from 70c to 197c while the feeder paid from 128c to 205c/kg. Bulls sold to 273c/kg.

There was a slight decrease in the number yarded at Emerald with 1,630 head on offer, 223 head fewer than last week. Condition was mixed, with some very light conditioned cows on hand. The buying panel was short one processor and there was only a limited number of restockers operating and prices eased across the board.
A small offering of vealer heifers sold to 205c to average from 180c to 190c/kg. Yearling steers were just a little easier with averages from 243c to 259c/kg recorded. Yearling heifers made to 221c with averages from 162c for plain, light pens to 207c/kg, irrespective of weight.
Grown steers to feed topped at 258c to average 249c, with the few 4 score bullocks making to 266c and averaging 259c/kg. Grown heifers to feed reached 257c to average 251c with a few to the trade making to 226c/kg. Prime heavy, 4 score cows averaged 194c with sales to 210c/kg.

Agents yarded 45,080 lambs at Hamilton today. The yarding was of excellent quality which consisted of all weights and grades. Some of the lighter 1 and 2 score lambs are starting to show the signs of the recent cold weather and the extra long feed that prevails. All the major processes and buyers feeders and store buyers were in attendance as well as one extra major interstate processor on a market that was firm on last week's offering. Restockers paid to $155/head. Restockers came from Avoca, Bendigo, Swan Hill, Ballarat, Mt Gambier and local areas.

Agents penned a reduced yarding of sheep and lambs and it was another offering of plainer types due to the dry season across the supply area. A large portion of the yarding comprised of light lambs keenly sort after by strong restocker presence. All the regular field of buyers were present with stock agents and feedlots buyers active.
Trade weight new season lambs were very limited with processors keen to participate on the small offering. Light and medium trade weights, 18-22kg gained $8, selling from $140 to $170 with the heavy trade weights, 22-24kg lambs making from $168 and $180, averaging 174c/kg cwt, jumping $4/head. Heavy lambs to the domestic and export buyers sold to easier trends, making from $180 to $191/head.

"There was a reduced number this week, with the condition of the offering mostly plain. Quality was very mixed. Cows and grown heifers made up 45% of the penning. There was restricted processor competition with limited availability of suitably finished strock. There were also less restocker orders in place for the young cattle, while there were some good restocker and feeder orders for cows.
A fair supply of young calves mostly sold to cheaper trends, premiums for the male portion. In the heavier calves, the plainer D muscles recovered some of last week's losses, while breed was a factor in some price change. The majority of the yearling steers fell into the light weight class. Quality was mostly plain with this playing a role in price change. The market trend was firm to cheaper. Conversely, the market trend for the light weight yearlings was firm to slightly dearer, the quality and breed similar to that of the steers.
There was good restocker and feeder competition for grown heifers with 2 and 4 teeth, while the older heifers were discounted. The majority were D muscle 1 and 2 scores with the market trend dearer under increased competition. Plain condition cows sold to cheaper trends despite some good restocker and feeder competition. The quality and condition were also factors. Cows to process sold to dearer trends as buyers competed strongly on the limited supply. Reduced processor competition and a drop in quality resulted in a much cheaper trend in the bull market."

"There was a sizeable increase in cattle supply with 478 head yarded, 231 more. Quality was mainly good with beef cows and large increases in vealer numbers providing the bulk of the improved quality. Additional restocker competition helped young cattle prices to lift 15c to 20c/kg for vealers, though some of this was also due to the better quality. Yearlings sold to varying demand but overall they averaged 10c to 20c/kg lower with plainer quality most affected. The grown steers and grown heifers were mostly unchanged in prices as were heavy weight bulls. The cows sold 10c and up to 20c/kg cheaper. The yarding comprised of 21 grown steers, 41 grown heifers, 259 young cattle, 129 cows and 28 bulls.
The vealers made from 272c to 300c with restockers paying from 250c to 288c and 310c/kg were the tops. Yearlings sold from 220c to 275c with restockers spending from 230c to 286c and five B3's made to 294c/kg. The cheaper D muscled yearlings sold from 140c to 216c/kg.
The one sale of 12, C4 grown steers sold for 259c while the C3 and C4 grown heifers made from 236c to 256c/kg. Most C3 and C4 beef cows sold from 215c to 235c and D2 cows made from 185c to 215c/kg. The 1 score cows sold from 140c to 200c/kg. Heavy weight A and B muscled 2 score bulls made 245c to 290c/kg."

MLA audio not provided
"Boyanup weaner sale, 4th December was the fourth of this series where all cattle had been weaned a minimum of 10 days. The 1,500 head penned were up, 500 head on last week's sale and were again of good quality however, the weights are back some 25kgs on last years offering. The buying contingent were mainly South Western graziers and feedlotters. Live export competition was very much reduced and with that a decline of 5c on the steer portion and 15c/kg live weight on the heifers was the outcome. This equates to $80 drop in the average price of steers from the last sale and $120/head down on the heifers, emphasising the importance of the live export competition in the WA market place. That, together with some 10,000 head of cattle the majority being weaners to yearlings being offered in WA sale yards this week also had some effect. These abnormally large sales are being mainly pushed by dwindling paddock feed.
The weaner steers sold from 272c to 350c, to average 306c, down 5c/kg on the previous sale at an average price of $1,152. against last weeks sale of $1,233. The keenest competition came for the 200 to 280kg weight range, averaging 328c/kg. Heavier weights being the majority were closer to the sale average, all categories were 5c/kg easier.
Weaner heifers this week were generally of a lesser quality and sold from 190c to 286c, to average 243c, down 15c/kg at an average price of
$930, as against last week's average of $1058/head. Most demand was for medium weights that averaged 255c/kg. Heavier weights averaged 235c, down 40c/kg and were the main contributor to the overall lesser average price."

"Numbers reduced by 1179 head to 5536. Overall quality has declined from the previous week, with larger numbers of drought affected classes included in the lineup. A fair panel of buyers was present and operating, however not all the major export processors were in attendance.
Lightweight drought affected young cattle received very little support from restockers and backgrounders. Yearling steers to feed for the domestic market generally sold to strong demand for the quality penned. Heavyweight yearling steers to feed experienced some quality related price changes. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 8c/kg cheaper. Virtually no heavy grown steers and bullocks were penned.
Prices for cows tended to stabilise and received some improvement in places following the large losses experienced the previous week.
Yearling steers to feed for the domestic market made to 308.2c with the largest numbers in the high 280c to 290c/kg range. Heavy weight yearling steers to feed made to 301.2c to average 292c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed made to 265c to average 238c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to feed averaged 251c, and a small selection to the trade made to an isolated 295.2c/kg.
Very lightweight poor condition cows averaged 77c, however poor condition medium weights sold to restocker at an average of 144c/kg. Medium weight 2 scores also sold to restockers at an average of 182c/kg. Good heavy cows to processors averaged 215c and made to 223.2c/kg. Heavy bulls made to 246.2c/kg.

"Numbers returned to similar of the previous fortnight following insufficient numbers last week for a yarding of 2,351 mixed quality cattle in very hot temperatures in Charters Towers. Some good quality heavy lines of prime cows and bullocks were on offer, accompanied by several lines of prime and store cattle showing the effects of the ever increasing dry season. One major processor was absent and similar to southern markets, prices for all prime cattle eased considerably. One live exporter and several opportunity restockers and backgrounders operated selectively on many lines sourced from Mt Isa, Hughenden, Muttaburra, Mt Garnet, Belyando, local and coastal areas.
Mixed sex calves saw quality related price changes, while good quality vealer steers improved with spirited demand on selected pens. Vealer heifers softened across all categories, particularly lighter lesser quality lines by more than 30c and mixed quality yearling heifers to restockers sold 55c to 70c/kg lower. Yearling steers to feed and restockers eased by 20c to 40c and all grown steers to feed and backgrounders saw prices ease by 35c to 55c/kg. Select pens of good quality grown heifers to feeders improved by 50c, however heavy heifers to the trade eased by 40c to 50c/kg. Many lines of mixed quality plain bullocks met limited demand, with a small number of heavy export bullocks easing more than 50c/kg on previous sale. Medium weight cows to processor eased more than 30c and heavy 3 and 4 score cows sold more than 50c/kg lower. Bulls to feed destined for live export eased by 25c to 30c/kg.
Good quality vealer steers sold to 316c and heavier types made to 308c, with lesser quality lines averaging 268c/kg. Better lines of vealer heifers to restockers sold to 215c, while a good sample of heavy heifers to live export sold for 264c/kg. Yearling steers varied in quality and weight, resulting in selective buyer…"

"There were approximately 170 export and 60 young cattle penned representing a decrease of 30 head week-on-week. The same small group of buyers was present and operating in a dearer market in places. Quality was limited with fewer prime cattle on offer while the cows held a smaller proportion of dairy lots. Yearling trade heifers lifted 16c/kg. Grown steers and bullocks sold firm to 5c/kg easier. Cows were mixed but dearer overall while heavy bulls sold 25c/kg cheaper.

Agents penned record numbers with an extra 1,500 sheep and lambs penned. The quality was noticeably plainer than last week with a large portion lacking finish and showing dry skins across the lamb pens. There was, however, a good number of heavy sheep on offer suiting the export processors. The restocker and feedlot buyers were again very active today stepping into the large offering of store condition lambs.

Numbers lifted and the quality was a bit plainer. There was a good run of trade cattle and a few very good vealers but there were more secondary cattle that were lacking finish. Feedlots were more selective in the larger yarding and restocking orders were active on the plainer lines. Prime grown cattle were very limited and close to 250 plainer and lighter cows were offered. The market sold to a cheaper trend.

The heavier butcher vealers sold 20c cheaper selling from 250c to 275c/kg. Light vealer steers to restockers reached 281c/kg. Medium and heavy feeder steers eased 11c, ranging from 240c to 286c/kg.

Numbers fell away as agents yarded 8,155 lambs, 358 sheep and 3 goats to total 8,513 head overall with a fall of over 3,500 head on the previous sale. These sold to a larger field of active trade and processor buyers this week along with a number of restocker orders. Quality generally improved on the week before as agents brought forward more weight and condition in the pens along with fresh skins on most, although some lambs are starting to show signs of drying off and needing the attention of the shearers. Competition among the buying group was good as the market ranged from firm to slightly dearer making from 680c to 710c/kg cwt covered most sales.

Light lambs sold from $91 to $138 as the light weight trade 2 and 3 score types made from $139 to $149/head. A number of restocker orders operated throughout the market as they turned lambs back out from a low of $74 up to a high of $153/head. Trade weight 3 score lambs made from $148 to $159, with the heavy lambs being sought after as they sold from $162 to $215 to be up to $4/head dearer in price. Extra heavy lambs sold from $222 to a market high of $233/head.

Hoggets sold from $118 to $150 as the lighter portion of the ewes made from $105 to $146/head. The heavier ewes returned from $134 to $155 as wethers sold to $153 and rams made from $80 to $100/head. Incidentally, the 3 stray goats sold for $50/head after limited competition, to be dearer then the last time I saw goats sold in Mt Gambier.

There were bigger numbers of both lambs and mutton at Powranna and Killafaddy on Tuesday, with most of the state experiencing a very cold last couple of weeks which no doubt is having an effect on numbers coming forward. Most prime lamb prices were similar, while restocking lambs were from $5 to $10/head cheaper. Mutton prices were from $10 to $20/head cheaper, with a shipping backlog being blamed for some buyers not operating.

Restockers bought light lambs from $73 to $114, light trade from $115 to $124 and trade weight from $120 to $148/head. Exporters paid from $162 to $178 for extra heavy pens, while heavy weights made from $136 to $162 and trade weights from $128 to $144/head.

Heavy ewes and wethers made from $116 to $141, medium weights from $90 to $133, light weights from $70 to $105 and very light from $50 to $65/head.

Numbers were back 849 to 1,479 head. All buyers were present, though with an extremely mixed quality and condition yarding the market was very mixed.

Yearling steers to restocker were cheaper, while those to feed and processors were firm to dearer. Yearling heifers, light weight to restockers were cheaper, while the medium weight, better quality heifers to restockers were dearer. Heifers to feeders and processors were predominately firm to cheaper, though there were some quality weight classes that managed to buck the trend.

Grown cattle were also mixed with steers under 500kg to feed holding firm, and heavies to processors were cheaper. Heifers under 540kg to restockers were firm to dearer, while those to processors were cheaper. Cows were mostly cheaper in all categories, with the 3 score medium weight cattle defying the trend to be dearer on quality.
