Mount Gambier cattle report (MLA): Yarding: 523 (-752). MLA commentary and audio available via the app. (2nd April 2020 01:31 AM)
Yarding: 523 (-752).
Agents yarded the much smaller number of 523 head of live weight and open auction cattle at Mount Gambier. These sold to a smaller field of trade and processor buyers with some absent this week while some were not fully active across the offering. Quality was plain at best with sales according to quality on offer as the market sold from firm to easier rates this week. Yearling steers to the trade made from 343c to 366c with the best of the heifers selling from 333c to 350c/kg. Feeder steers ranged from 325c to 332c/kg with less demand this week. Grown steers made from mainly 315c to 328c as the grown heifers returned from 282c to 303c as manufacturing steers sold to a high of 260c/kg. Heavy cows sold from 250c to 278c as the medium weights returned from 222c to 266c with the lighter types selling from 160c to 215c/kg. A small offering of bulls made from 242c to 250c/kg. Please note that there is no prime cattle sale next week at Mount Gambier due to the Easter break and agents will instead hold their monthly store sale on the Wednesday.

Yarding: 2,050 (-2,028).
There were approximately 1,650 export and 400 young cattle penned representing a decrease of 2,000 head from last week's sale. Agents reported solid competition for prime cattle from the regular field of buyers operating in a mixed market. Quality declined with a larger proportion of secondary cattle on offer. Trade cattle eased a little in line with quality. Grown steers and bullocks attracted solid competition to sell firm to a little dearer in places. Manufacturing steers eased a little. Cows and bulls sold to weaker demand with prices reportedly 10c/kg cheaper and more on some sales. Vealers sold from 305c to 392c/kg. Yearling steers to processors made from 340c to 388c/kg. Yearling heifers to processors sold from 300c to 370c/kg. Grown steers made from 312c to 347c/kg. Bullocks sold from 302c to 351c/kg. Heavy grown heifers made from 280c to 320c/kg. Heavy Friesian manufacturing steers sold from 242c to 289c with the crossbred portion selling from 268c to 320c/kg. Most light and medium weight cows made from 175c to 243c/kg. Heavy weight cows sold from 185c to 290c/kg. Heavy bulls made from 214c to 280c/kg.

CQLX Gracemere cattle report (MLA): Yarding: 2,760 (-1,733). MLA commentary and audio available via the app. (2nd April 2020 01:24 AM)
Yarding: 2,760 (-1,733).
The yarding at CQLX sale was much smaller with 2,760 head on offer, 1,733 down on last sale. Again many categories showed easing tendencies but a fair percentage of this was due to a drop in the quality on offer. A mixed yarding, drawn mainly from the regular draw area of Central Queensland met with fair competition from a reduced number of buyers, due in part to restricted yard entry, but there was no shortage of orders from those present. A small number of calves sold to 370c for males, with mixed sex averages of 275c to 311c/kg. Similarly vealer cattle were also in light supply with steers topping at 388c, to average 327c, and heifers selling to 338c, to average 290c to 307c/kg.There were occasional sales to 396c for yearling steers, with the best bred pens averaging from 307c to 351c, and plain lines from 252c to 275c/kg. Yearling heifers topped at 334c, with a good percentage selling to processors to average 311c to 326c, for the best bred 200-280kg drafts. Light weight grown steers went to feed to average 273c, with heavier lines selling to 316c, returning averages 286c to 298c/kg. A few 4 scores sold to 289c/kg. Grown heifers went to the trade mostly, selling to 296c, to average in the mid 270c/kg range. The 2 score cows eased to average 189c to 202c, and 3 scores averaged 230c to 242c/kg. The best heavy 4 score cows improved 7c to average 251c/kg. Heavy bulls topped at 282c, to average 270c/kg. Good framed cows with sappy calves at foot sold from $1,250 to $1,550/unit.

Yarding: 2,325 (-2,773).
MLA audio not provided.
There was a large decline in supply to 2,325 head at Dalby, a reduction of 2,770 head on the previous week. Not all the usual export buyers were operating, and the supermarket support of the previous week was absent. However there was an increased number of butchers and wholesalers in attendance and operating on suitable trade cattle. A lift in the quality of the young light weight yearling steers and heifers resulted in some price improvements. Despite a few less export buyers operating, the relatively large selection of cows experienced a firm to slightly dearer market. Yearling steers under 200 kg returning to the paddock made to 430c, with a fair sample averaging 403c/kg. Light weight yearling steers to restockers averaged 395c and made to 438c/kg. Yearling steers to feed for the domestic market averaged from 352c to 371c, with occasional sales to 400c/kg. Heavy weight yearling steers suited to local trade market made to 384c to average 351c/kg. Light weight yearling heifers to restockers or background made to 388c to average 347c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed for the domestic market averaged from 322c to 325c with sales to 366c/kg. Medium weight yearling heifers to processors averaged 334c and made to 374c/kg. Heavy weight yearling heifers to the trade market also average 334c and made to 385c/kg. Light weight cows averaged 209c and made to 242c, and medium weights made to 279c to average 255c/kg. Heavy cows made to 281.2c, a good selection averaging 269c/kg. Heavy bulls made to the occasional 352.2c/kg.

Consignments decreased, with the quality remaining mixed, as the majority of the younger cattle entered the yearling categories. The well finished and high yielding cattle suitable for the butchers were limited in supply, while the cows were also reduced in number, with yield and quality slipping compared to the last market. Cows sold to a cheaper trend, while the younger cattle to the restockers and lot feeders were discounted, mainly due to the small lots represented, any decent numbers in the one lot sold to solid competition. Vealer steers to the restockers ranged from 360c to 494c/kg. The heifer portion also to the restockers made from 350c to 386c/kg.

Cows trended cheaper by 10c to 12c, with quality also contributing in places. The plainer 2 scores made from 230c to 258c, as the better finished 3 and 4 score heavy weights ranged from 260c to 266c/kg. The best heavy weight bull reached 270c/kg.
