Good rainfall across the drawing area reduced the penning by half. There was a good supply of yearlings along with heavy grown steers. There was a limited offering of cows. The quality and condition of the offering was mostly good with the majority presenting in forward to well finished condition. All the regular buyers were in attendance, however not all processors got a start. Restocker and feedlot competition was high.

Reduced yarding of 19,000 head, comprising nearly all woolly young lambs with just a few pens of shorn young lambs and older stock available. Competition from meat buyers intensified and exporters led the market to a much dearer result compared to a week ago. Heavy lambs gained up to $20 while most of the trade and lighter young lambs improved by $8 to $12/head. The sale also gained momentum as it progressed, as news filtered through of smaller numbers at NSW saleyards due to some big rain events. The dearer rates pushed Ballarat restockers out of the market for trade weight lambs to shear. There was still store buying for smaller lambs under 20kg cwt, with pens sold to Echuca, Shepparton, Bendigo, Wycheproof and Yarrawonga agents.

The heaviest young lambs over 30kg cwt sold from $235 to a top of $256/head for an average of 750c/kg cwt. The heavy 26 to 30kg cwt lambs attracted both export and domestic competition and sold from $202 to $240 to average $220/head. The next size down, 24 to 26kg cwt, made from $189 to $207 to average $198/head. These grades went to 770c to 780c/kg. There was sales recorded above 800c/kg for the neatest domestic pens, with the pick of the 22 to 24kg young lambs sold from $180 to $195/head. Overall, the bulk of the lambs to processors were in a range of 750c to 800c/kg cwt. There was some very strong sales of small lambs to the paddock.

Competition for mutton also ramped up, with a northern exporter again dominating. Good lines of trade and heavy mutton were $12 to $19/head dearer, with all grades of Merinos and crossbred sheep averaging over 600c/kg cwt, the best lines up around 660c/kg. There was sales topped 700c/kg cwt at times as buyers struggled to fill orders. A stand out pen of extra heavy Merino ewes in full wool topped at $265/head. Most heavy ewes made from $180 to $238 with plainer sheep making from $120 to $150/head.

Yarding: 3,107 (+771).

Total 15,883 (-5,166), lambs 11,893 (-2,745), sheep 3,990 (-2,421).
Numbers decreased with just over 10,000 new season lambs penned. The quality remained excellent with the bulk of the yarding being heavy trade and heavy weight lambs. Heavy export and light lambs were again limited in supply with restockers only active on a single pen. All the regular buying group were present, however, not all operating in a firm market.

Light lambs to the processors that were well covered sold firm to $6 dearer and made from $130 to $156/head. Lambs going to feed made from $159 to $183/head.

There were only odd pens of heavy weight lambs mixed throughout. Not all the regular buyers were operating with a couple of southern processors absent.

Trade weight new season lambs were firm to $7 dearer selling from $173 to $205/head to average between 785c and 825c/kg cwt. The few trade weight old lambs sold from $150 to $200/head. Heavy weight lambs were firm to $5 dearer with the old lambs over 24kg selling from $205 to $249/head to average between 760c and 800c/kg cwt.

TRLX Tamworth sheep report (MLA): Total 1,500 (-2,500), lambs 0 (+NQ), sheep 1,500 (-2,500). Audio available.
The quality and condition of lambs on offer was good. (26th October 2020 03:55 AM)
Total 1,500 (-2,500), lambs (+NQ), sheep 1,500 (-2,500).
It was a rain reduced penning of 1000 lambs and only 500 grown sheep. The quality and condition of the lambs on offer was good with both new season and old lambs represented. The usual processors and local butcher orders were in operation.

The limited supply of lambs in all weight classes attracted strong demand from processors with competition high. This resulted in dearer trends throughout. All weight and fat classes experienced significant improvement with the better quality lots seeing the best of a very strong market. Restockers were active on ewe lambs.

A couple of lines of young Crossbred ewes made up the bulk of the sheep penning. The youngest of these attracted strong restocker competition, while the year older at 3 years were purchased by processors. Market trends were dearer for all sheep to process, again some of the better lots showing strong gains.

TRLX Tamworth cattle report (MLA): Yarding: 712 (-898). Audio available.
The quality and condition of the offering was mostly good. (26th October 2020 03:46 AM)
Yarding: 712 (-898).
There was a rain reduced penning following some significant falls over the past week. Yearlings were well supplied and there were quite a few heavy grown steers. The quality and condition of the offering was mostly good. There were limited supplies of light weight young cattle. All the usual buyers were in attendance, however not all processors were active.

Strong demand from restockers and feedlotters saw yearling steers sell to dearer trends. The light and medium not carrying too much condition experienced strong gains. The 3 scores were only slightly dearer with quality and breed accounting for some price change. Heavy weight feeders saw a dearer trend of as much as 10c/kg. Strong processor competition for well finished heavy weights resulted in dearer trends. Those dearer trends carried through to all classes of yearling heifers.

Grown steers to feed sold to a much dearer trend with breed a factor in price change, a number of pens falling into the heavy weight class. Well finished heavy weights up to 4 teeth attracted both domestic and export processor competition with the market trend slightly dearer. Extra heavy weights and those carrying 6 teeth or more saw no domestic competition and sold to a slightly cheaper trend. Heavy grown heifers up to 4 teeth also sold to a dearer trend. The limited supply of cows sold to a dearer trend with high yielding C muscles up to 7c/kg dearer.

Swan Hill cattle report (MLA): Yarding: 509 (NQ). (23rd October 2020 03:04 AM)
Yarding: 509 (NQ).

The smallest yarding for some weeks with just 509 cattle yarded, 200 less than a fortnight ago. Quality was mixed although there was still some very good supplementary fed young cattle available. The reduced offering meant only the core group of regular buyers operated, with some of the additional domestic orders of past weeks not active. Price results for young cattle were similar to the dearer rates of the last sale. There was some very strong sales recorded for export slaughter cows, matching the rising trend seen at other more recent markets.

Bidding reached a top of 476c for for young steers weighing less than 320kg. Most of the better bred and presented yearling steers suiting processors or feedlot orders sold from 400c to 440c/kg. Saleyard data reported an average of 405.5c for the main run of yearling steers sized selling from 330kg to 400c/kg. The average for heavier steers, 400 to 500kg, was 394c with the top price in this weight range 446c/kg. Bidding was more selective over the heifer lines, with plainer shapes or over fat types not as well supported by buyers.

The price range for heavy grown heifers over 400kg was 257c to 413c for an overall average of 373c/kg. The cow market was bouyant, with all but the plainest cows tracking above 300c/kg.
