MLA audio available via link below (28th January 2020 08:04 AM)
Landmark reports 999 cattle and vealers at Muchea, Tuesday 28th January. Numbers fell sharply, possibly due to the long weekend and weather combined. The quality overall was well down, and values reflected this. Young steers and heifers showing the effects of the season, eased 20c/kg. Heavy bulls remained equal however young bulls eased noticeably due to the lack of competition. The quality of the cow offering was well down however values managed to maintain last week’s quotes.
Today’s Muchea agents yarded a total of 91 veal with numbers greatly reduced. Landmark yarded a total of 32. Quality was again mostly local bred calves. Local bull calves met with heavy competition and sold up to $700 and down to $685. Pastoral bulls met with solid demand making $155-$250. Local heifers were in supply and light in frame and weight, these sold from $110-$230.

Buyers were more selective on the supplementary fed cattle with prices firm to slightly easier than the previous week.

Agents yarded 1,505 head of liveweight and open auction cattle with an increase of over 500 head this week. These sold to a smaller field of trade and processor buyers with both feeders and restockers actively seeking supply across the market.

Numbers increased with the majority coming in the cow and grown steer runs. There were 1,330 export cattle and 585 trade. The quality was fair to good with a few very good vealers and a good line of grain assisted yearlings which suited the trade.

Grown steers and bullocks sold 11c to 14c stronger ranging from 266c to 312c/kg. Crossbred bullocks 258c to 282c/kg. Heavy grown heifers lifted 13c reaching 296c/kg.

There was a big jump in cattle supply to 816 head with quality mixed but the standard of the young cattle compared to last week was much better. Cows still made up the larger percentage of the yarding that saw 432 come forward. There were also 241 young cattle and grown heifers, 90 bulls and 53 grown steers.
The regular buyers attended the sale and generally paid equal prices to last week, quality on quality. The exception were heavy weight bulls which easily picked up 20c/kg.
The C muscled vealers sold to processors and restockers from 240c to 270c with C muscled yearlings from 246c to 288c/kg.
Grown steers made 256c, 264c and 265c/kg for the average quality C3 and C4 grades. Manufacturing D2 steers were between 240c and 257c/kg. The better covered grown heifers made 244c to 258c/kg.
Most C3 and C4 beef cows sold from 230c to 258c with the best at 265c/kg. The D2 cows made 194c to 239c with the D1 cows at 178c to 209c/kg. The E1 grade of cows sold between 140c and 190c/kg. Heavy weight B2 beef bulls were from 275c to 290c with dairy bred 2 score bulls between 225c and 265c/kg.

Storms throughout the region reduced numbers, as the quality remained mixed. The younger cattle suitable for the restockers and lot feeders in places were of a lower muscle score, however there were well bred pens presented for sale. Prime conditioned and high yielding younger cattle were also penned and these sold to strong competition. There were approximately 230 cows in the penning, with most weights and grades represented. The market trend was dearer.
The heavier calves improved 11c, making from 224c to 338c/kg. The vealer steers were too scarce to quote, however the best weighing over 200kg sold at 318c/kg. The vealer heifers were also limited in number and these lifted 7c, with restockers paying from 296c to 302c/kg.
Yearling steers to the restockers and lot feeder orders gained from 5c to 8c and made from 270c to 330c/kg. The yearling heifers also to the restockers and feeder orders lifted 12c, selling from 258c to 306c/kg. The prime conditioned younger cattle to the butchers again sold to strong competition, with the best topping at 332c/kg.
Cows lifted from 5c to 15c, with the plainer drafts receiving from 192c to 242c, as the better finished heavy weights made from 251c to 290c/kg. The best well muscled heavy weight bull reached 303c/kg.

There was a slight increase in numbers, up for all categories. A good selection of grain assisted yearlings available, a limited supply of weaners and strong competition from restockers for the better bred, light drafts of cows. All but one processor present as well as strong feeder interest.
Well bred steer weaners were snapped up by backgrounders as was the heifer portion. Light yearling steers to feed saw trends rise by 18c/kg. Medium weight drafts saw a dearer trend of 25c with trade steers topping at 326c/kg. The heifer drafts were also dearer, with very light heifers to 27c/kg better. Medium weight heifers to feed were significantly dearer, up 28c/kg.
Grown heifers improved by 19c/kg. Restocker interest pushed light cows up 18c/kg. Medium trade cows saw dearer trends, with the heavy D3 and D4 cows seeing much dearer trends, up 35c/kg in places. An improved bull offering also saw trends rise 16c/kg .

Patchy rain across the district saw numbers remain steady. There was a large supply of cows with finished heavy weights well represented. Young cattle were also well supplied with limited numbers of heavy grown steers and heifers. Overall the quality and condition was fair to very good. The full field of usual processors were operating, while there was increased restocker and feedlot demand. Competition was strong from all sectors.
Restockers were active through the young cattle. Light weight steers experienced significant price improvement. Medium and heavy weight yearling steers to feed saw a dearer trend of 13c to 15c/kg. There were strong gains for yearling heifers in all weight ranges, those suitable to feed showing similar improvement to the steers. The light weights to restockers also showing increases at the rate of their male counterparts.
Heavy grown steers to feed and to process saw a dearer trend of as much as 19c/kg. An improved quality penning of heavy heifers were as much as 26c/kg dearer in places. Strong demand for light and medium weight cows resulted in a much dearer market trend with all sectors competing. Processor demand for well finished heavy weights increased with the market trend up to 7c/kg dearer.

More light and secondary Merino lambs came forward with supplementary fed Merinos and crossbreds keenly sought after by processors as agents offered 6,500 lambs and 1,500 sheep. Competition was generally good with more restocker activity pushing lighter young and older lambs, both Merinos and crossbreds marginally higher than the previous sale with lambs to the trade also not showing the weights of the previous week but remaining mostly firm.
Extremely light young lambs sold from $84 to $124, light trade weights received $134 to $150, medium weights sold from $160 to $182 with heavier weights receiving $172 to $180/head.
Extremely light older lambs sold from $110 to $138, light trade weights received $136 to $142 as medium weights ranged from $150 to
$170/head. Heavy trade weights were few in number as they sold from $180 to $220 with extreme heavy weights again few in number selling from $220 to $238/head.
Light hoggets sold from $66 to $70 with a reasonable selection of heavier weights receiving $162 to $186/head.

"Numbers increased significantly. The market threw out dearer price trends over most categories due to a shortage of supply. There was a larger offering of secondary stock, with most selling to feedlot competition. Heavy cattle numbers increased and quality was quite good. It was a large field of buyers at the rail along with a Queensland processor.
Demand for vealers strengthened due to increased demand from lot feeders and restockers. The pick of the vealers sold from 280c to 320c/kg. Well finished trade weight steers sold from 10c to 28c, dearer averaging 307c/kg. Trade weight heifer prices lifted 13c/kg, with grass finished heifers in greater numbers. The better shaped heifers made from 270c to 305c/kg. Feeder steers and heifers were keenly sought by a larger group of buyers, resulting in significantly dearer trends for both classes. Steers, 400 to 500kg averaged 292c, while the heifer portion topped at 290c to average 277c/kg.
The heavy export market sold to stronger demand from the both the south and the north. Heavy C3 steers gained 7c to average 294c/kg. C4 bullocks sold 10c dearer which was due in part to quality and competition. Bullocks sold from 280c to 310c/kg. Crossbred steers made from 250c to 270c/kg. Friesian steer prices improved by as much as 36c, making from 240c to 265c/kg."

Vendors consigned an increased number of cattle to Emerald Sale with 1,958 head offered, 837 more than last sale. Included was a major line of 930 cows from the Alpha district. Cattle yarded were in good condition throughout and included a number of short term grain assisted cattle which sold well to feeders and processors. The addition of an extra processor and restocker buyers and the prospect of follow up rain prompted the market to take a rise.
There were very few vealer cattle penned. Yearling steers sold to feed averaging from 289 to 323c/kg. Yearling heifers also to feed made to 308c, averaging from 266c for light weights through to 304c/kg for heavy weight yearling heifers.
Grown steers to feedlots topped at 324c, returning an average of 316c/kg. Processors paid from 308 to 322c/kg for their finished steers. Grown heifers to the trade made to 306c and returned quality related averages from 271c to 293c/kg. 2 score cows sold to 243c with the best of the heavy 4 score cows reaching 271c, to average 261c/kg. Heavy bulls were shared between live exporters and processors to average 307c/kg.

It was a mixed yarding with some very good young cattle to suit both the feeders and processors along with a fair percentage of plainer types. There were some excellent grown steers and heifers along with good numbers of cows and young calves. All the regular buyers were in attendance and operating in a solid market.
Young cattle to the trade were 7c to 13c dearer with the prime steer yearlings selling from 290c to 316c while the prime heifer yearlings sold from 270c to 295c/kg. Feeder cattle were 13c to 17c dearer with the feeder steers selling from 288c to 328c while the feeder heifers sold from 270c to 296c/kg. Young cattle to the restockers were 15c to 20c dearer with the young steers selling from 255c to 332c, while the young restocker heifers sold from 220c to 300c/kg.
Prime grown steers were 9c dearer selling from 291c to 320c, while the grown heifers were firm to 5c dearer, selling from 262c to 298c/kg.

It was a small and very mixed yarding for the final prime lamb and sheep market at Swan Hill for 2019. As is the norm at the centre, selling will now cease until next year when shorn lambs become available. Being the last sale of spring there was a lot of small and plain lots on offer, as farmers cleaned out tail-end drafts. Not all the usual buyers were operating. The market was cheaper, with quality a factor. The bulk of the unshorn and shorn lambs were estimated below 720c/kg cwt. Agents did opt to pass-in some lambs to shear.
Just one pen of lambs sold above $200, reaching a top of $210/head for a pen of heavy export shorn lambs. The best price for woolly young lambs was $194/head. Most of the better trade weight lambs over 20kg and with reasonable carcase cover, made from $140 to $180/head. Some larger lines of light weight Dorpers were yarded, making from $88 to $125/head to processors and a restocking order from Shepparton.
Results in the sheep sale varied, with pens of good quality trade weight Merinos still selling reasonably well. Odd pen lots, extra heavy sheep and some of the plainest conditioned Dorpers were discounted.

Numbers were marginally lower. Quality was either plain or outstanding with a lighter lamb dry in the skin. The best presented lambs were grain fed across trade and heavy lamb classes. Generally, prices for all trade types strengthened significantly due to the shortage of quality lambs in NSW. Heavy young lambs over 26kg cwt were in limited supply. Lighter weight young lambs were supported by restockers and feedlots. Mutton numbers declined, and prices were dearer over all categories.
Price results for trade lambs strengthened, due to a contraction of supply. The best of the heavy trade lambs 22 to 24kg sold up to $22/head dearer to average 809c/kg cwt. Light weight lambs to the processors held there values best, with Woolley types making from $132 to
$148/head. New season light weight lambs back to the paddock sold to stronger trends, making from $92 to $148/head. Young shorn lambs with weight and frame were keenly sought by a local agents and feedlots making from $132 to $168/head.
Heavy and extra heavy lambs ignited the bidding amongst export and domestic processors. Extra heavy lambs sold to buoyant competition, with buyers all pushed to capture a market share, where prices were $20 to $26/head dearer, averaging 777c/kg cwt.
It was a mixed quality yarding of mutton, with a good supply of trade sheep through the offering. Rain in the north put a halt to discounting. Competition ramped up from all processors with buyers scrambling to purchase heavy ewes. Heavy crossbred ewes sold up to $280 lifting prices by $30/head. Heavy Merino ewes made from $150 to $240/head, averaging 605c/kg cwt. Heavy wethers sold at $165 to $171/head, averaging 580c/kg cwt. Trade and light sheep sold from $95 to $145/head, with trade mutton averaging 570c/kg cwt.

Good recent rain with another forecast on the way resulted in a drop odd in numbers. This forcing sales back to a fortnightly basis for the forseeable future. The quality and condition of the offering was generally plain. There was a reduced presence of processors, however restockers were active in all categories.
Despite the limited supplies market trends were generally dearer through all of the young cattle categories. Light weight vealer steers to restockers were as much as 46c/kg dearer. A plain quality penning of light weight yearling steers experienced strong gains taking quality into account. The heifer portion followed a similar trend.
Lightly muscled grown heifers suitable to feed sold to much dearer trends. Strong restocker activity on the plain condition cows saw them dearer with some improvement in quality. The reduced processor competition impacted the bull market.

"Following some welcome falls of rain in the draw area, CQLX Gracemere Vendors penned a smaller yarding of 1,740 head, a decrease of 710 head on last week. The majority came from local areas and were met with strong competition from a full field of buyers which comprised the regular panel plus an additional processor and restockers.

A small offering of vealer steers sold to 280c, averaging 271c/kg for the best. Likewise, vealer heifers were also in short supply, with the best forward conditioned pens selling to 282c/kg. Other plainly bred pens averaged from 180c to 228c/kg. Yearling steers sold to feed to 328c, returning averages from 286c to 305c/kg in line with quality and condition.
