Armidale cattle report (MLA):

Yarding: 108 (-182). Audio available. (21st January 2021 12:39 AM)
Yarding: 108 (-182).

This was one of the smallest sales on record in a reflection of the very good seasonal conditions and high level selloff during the drought. Yearlings made up the bulk of the offering along with some very good heavy grown heifers and cows. The quality was mostly good and condition fair to excellent. There was a limited gallery of buyers, however demand from all sectors was high.

The high demand for young cattle resulted in dearer trends throughout. Only quality and breed had any negative effect on price change. The lack of supply having little effect and reflecting supply levels through the industry.

Despite a small number of processors in attendance, market trends for the grown cattle were firm to dearer with some improvement for quality in the cows. Bulls experienced little change.

Boyanup store cattle report (MLA) (20/1):

Yarding: 1,770 (+332). (21st January 2021 12:32 AM)
Yarding: 1,770 (+332).

The 9th Boyanup weaner cattle sale for the 2020/2021 again settled at very even rates on heifers and a slight softening on the steers compared to the last sale. The main variations being on the light weight steers that eased 40c and medium weights softened 10c/kg as the solid NSW competition tended this time to favour the female section of the sale and with a reduction in live export demand. Highlights of the female sale included the gain of 14c on heavy weights with increased grazier competition as they were of superior quality and suited towards replacement breeders compared to just feeder types. The beef bred cattle were predominately Angus and Murray Greys supplemented by Euro cross and presented in mainly prime condition to a buying contingent comprising professional local buyers representing WA feedlots and NSW orders. They were ably supported by on line bidders with competition also from NSW graziers via the medium of Auctions Plus. Southwestern graziers were also very active bidders. The quality of the cattle was again outstanding and the overall result again very pleasing.

Light weaner steers up to 280kg sold from 458c to 508c to average 460c, to ease 40c/kg. Medium weights 280 to 330kg sold from 422c to 534c to average 460c, down 10c/kg. Heavy steers over 330kg sold from 400c to 450c to average 435c/kg. Light weaner heifers 200 to 280kg sold from 418c to 478c to average 450c up by 5c/kg. Medium weights 280 to 330kg sold from 380c to 448c to average 425c easing 5c/kg. Heavy weights over 330kg made from 376c to 430c to average 414c up by 14c/kg.

Prices for vealers averaged fully firm to 5c dearer but yearlings were mostly unchanged to in places 5c and 8c/kg easier. The grown steers sold 6c to 7c/kg cheaper and many of the extra heavy weight pens were hard to clear. Crossbred and dairy steers however remained firm in prices. The large and very good run of beef cows made up to 5c/kg more, aided by strong restocker competition. Dairy cows eased a little in prices while the leaner and poorer conditioned dairy cows sold 10c to 20c/kg lower. Bulls were 5c to 8c/kg cheaper.

Vealers made from 410c to 430c with restockers paying to 440c/kg. The yearling steers all went to restockers from 400c to 411c and most of the yearling heifers were making from 345c to 390c with a top sale at 400c/kg.

Yarding: 412 (+147).

Numbers increased slightly with a very good offering of trade and feeder cattle. There was an emphasis from feeder operators buying feedlot and restocker needs from the better quality end of the offering. All the regular buyers attended to a much dearer market.

Weaners to the paddock sold to a much dearer trend, both steers and heifers, the steers experiencing a rise of up to 50c, the heifers 20c/kg. Processors pushed their competitors to significantly higher levels, steers up 21c dearer, the heifer portion seeing a rise of 31c/kg. Feed and restocker operators advanced their trends for the forward drafts of both steers and heifers, securing product for finishing on the lot and the lighter drafts to go to the paddock. Conversely, there were drafts of light weaner and yearling heifers sell to cheaper trends, depending on quality.

No numbers of grown steers or heifers for a reliable quote. Much the same for cows, although worth noting were sales of heavy cows selling from 308c to 320c/kg.

Total 6,000 (+NQ), lambs 4,800 (+NQ), sheep 1,200 (+NQ).

After a delayed start to the year, the fortnightly prime market began with a yarding of 4,800 lambs and 1,200 sheep. There was some good heavy shorn lambs in each agents run, but quality did quickly fade away into mixed lots of light and plain stock of various breeds. The core buying group operated, and interest from processors was reasonable but selective. One agency did pass in its lead run of shorn lamb after bidding didn't reach expectations. This report hasn't been compared to the last Deniliquin sale held in early December due to the amount of time which has passed. The carcase price averages for lambs were within the range of recent markets in the area.

Heavy shorn lambs in the 26 to 30kg cwt category sold from $227 to a top of $244/head. Crossbred lambs weighing 24 to 26kg made from $204 to $222/head. These lambs, in shorter-skins and displaying good finish, were estimated in a range of 800c to 850c/kg cwt. Quality across the medium and lighter weight lambs was very mixed, and included some very plain conditioned smaller store lambs.

Not a lot of sheep on offer after reports of cheaper mutton markets in the past week. Some extra heavy meat ewes reached $215, but bidding rarely went over $190/head. The general run of Merino ewes sold from $140 to $172/head. Estimated mutton costs were from 510c for the heaviest sheep through to 600c/kg cwt plus on the more nicely weight trade ewes. The bulk of sales in a range of 550c to 590c/kg cwt.

Scone cattle report (MLA):

Yarding: 554 (+209).

Numbers lifted by half to pen a good selection of processor veal, restockers and feeder types. There was also an increased penning of cows. Included in the offering were drafts of plainer quality young cattle and these sold to a cheaper trend through some drafts. However, this reversed on the better quality offerings, particularly in the feeder penning, these selling to a much dearer trend in places. All the regular buyers attended, with extra local restockers competing on the better types.

Steer weaners under 280kg sold to cheaper trends from last week's competitive demand. Conversely, similar weight heifers saw dearer trends of 6c/kg. Feeder weight steers in that category saw rises of 17c/kg. The better quality yearling steers turned the trends to see a restockers dearer by a big margin, as did the feeder drafts, up to 21c/kg better. Yearling heifers to the restockers sold to dearer trends of up to 24c/kg better. Trade cattle varied with odd sales of steers and heifers dearer.

Only limited numbers of grown cattle, so no reliable quote. Cow numbers improved although the end story saw a cheaper trend for both three and four score types.
