Yarding: 2,921 (+191).

There was an increase in cattle numbers to 2,921 which was a lift of 191 head. A similar number of trade weight cattle was offered and there was again some interest from feeders and restockers throughout the market for the better quality covered steers and heifers over 400kg. The regular export and domestic buyers were present and operated in a weaker market from 10c to 20c/kg for most categories. However some of the lighter young cattle sold to strong demand in places with most selling from 466c to 595c/kg.

Yearling steers to the trade made from 348c to 437c and the heifer yearlings sold from 340c to 444c/kg. The yearling steers and heifers with cover going to feed and back to the paddock mostly sold from 340c to 466c as they averaged from 420c to 440c/kg. The grown steers of C3 and C4 scores made from 318c to 376c to ease by 10c to 20c/kg. Heavy heifers were again well supplied with the C3 scores making from 310c to 365c/kg. Manufacturing steers sold from 280c to 340c/kg.

Cows sold to an overall softer trend to be 10c to 20c/kg cheaper and more in some isolated sales. Heavy cows sold from 256c to 300c and the leaner cow sales made from 244c to 285c/kg. Heavy bulls of all breeds sold to a top of 290c/kg.

Total 3,500 (+500), lambs (+NQ), sheep 3,500 (+500).

There were 1,800 lambs and 1,700 sheep penned. The quality of the lambs was fair to good. They were mostly older lambs with a few light weight young lambs. The condition varied from plain to very good. The usual processors were in attendance.

With the onset of some very hot drying weather, restocker activity was weaker. This resulted in cheaper trends for the light weight young lambs returning to the paddock. The limited supply of well finished young lambs suitable to processors also met weaker demand to sell to a cheaper trend. Light and medium weight old lambs to process sold on a slightly cheaper market trend. The heavy and extra heavy weight old lambs were well supported with a market trend firm to slightly cheaper. There were quite a few Merino hoggets penned, some carrying good skin length.

There were quite a few well finished sheep penned, although demand softened and as a result the market eased. The best of these sold on a firm trend, while the balance saw a slightly cheaper trend. Quality was a factor in price change in some classes.

Total 10,000 (+220), lambs 6,000 (-892), sheep 4,000 (+1,112).

Numbers remain small as harvest continues across the supply area. The quality this week was plainer. A large portion of the lamb yarding in store condition with restockers very active across the market. There were 5,500 hundred new season lambs available with some showing dryness and lacking finish. Not all the usual buying group were present and not all operating fully. The market was softer due to lack of competition and quality with a number of pens passed in.

Light and medium trade new season trade lambs were in reasonable supply selling in a firm to slightly softer trend making from $152 to $172/head. Heavy trade lambs eased $5 to sell from $167 to $188/head to average 754c cwt, 16c/kg less than last week.

A large buying group participated on the good offering of light and medium weight store lambs selling from $110 to $163/head.

Yarding: 1,508 (-102).

There was a small reduction in numbers. Young cattle made up the bulk of the offering, mostly yearlings with very few vealers. There were fair supplies of grown cattle and few bulls. The quality of the offering was mostly good with large numbers of well bred yearlings on offer. The condition of the cattle was generally good with most presenting in forward condition. There was less than the full compliment of buyers in attendance.

Demand was weaker through the young cattle, this resulting in cheaper trends throughout. Restocker and feedlot activity was somewhat subdued in the face of the extreme heat being experienced. Medium weight feeder steers saw a trend 20c to 30c/kg cheaper. The heavy weight feeder steers were less affected. Medium weight yearling heifers to feed saw a significantly cheaper market trend, while the heavy weight feeders experienced little change. Yearlings in forward condition were keenly sought, showing the least of the price fall. Well finished yearlings to the trade were firm to a shade cheaper.

Heavy grown steers to process saw a firm to slightly cheaper market trend with premiums for the younger lines. Again the cow market was cheaper, down by as much as 15c/kg on the better heavy weights. There was increased processor participation, however the demand was weaker.

Light weight Droughtmaster cows in mainly 1 score condition sold to graziers from 220c to 252c, with PTIC Droughtmaster cows to restockers selling from 250c to 272c to average 260c, which saw prices ease by 20c as both types were down in quality compared to the previous offering. To round the pastoral section off, some 200 head of light weight yearling bulls sold to live export buyers from 330c to 410c to average 375c, seeing a lift of 20c/kg.

In the local section of the sale demand continued strongly with competition from local feedlotters the driving force. Values were from 15c to 40c/kg dearer. New seasons vealers were abundant and presented well. Weaner steers sold from 402c to 482c/kg. The weaner heifers sold from 360c to 444c which saw prices ease by 30c/kg quality related. Overall the sale was again an outstanding success and the last of 7 since June that have been held to cater the NSW demand. These sales have generated the penning and sale of some of the best quality young pastoral cattle to be sold through the Muchea yards.

AWI Weekly Report:

Independent operators and traders all active as relative stability seen at wool auctions as EMI -9 to 1150c/kg and 846us +1. (27th November 2020 03:36 AM)
Price movements were minimal this week at Australian wool auctions. The most notable influence on wool values stemmed from the foreign exchange (forex) rates which saw the AUD strengthen strongly against all the major trading currencies.

Demand was predicted to be soft from the outset, which it was initially, but as the week progressed, buying intensity from most operators lifted and competition was strongest at the close of selling, except the crossbred sector.

A 9ac depreciation of the Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) occurred which closed 0.8% weaker at 1150ac clean/kg. The EMI in USD terms maintained at similar levels, being just 1usc higher at 846usc.

The scheduled 41,527 bales failed to materialise again and 36,535 bales were offered, a 12% drop from the previous Friday. Add the subsequent passed in rate of 12.1% for this week and this equates to 22.6% of the original roster not moving through the supply chain.

A good spread of purchasing interest was evident this week as processors, indent operators and traders were all active. As prices lowered or buyers filled current requirements, there was a quick buyer replacement that stepped in and helped maintain the healthy competition and price levels, indicative of strong order books present at the moment.

Super fine (18.5 micron and finer) Merino fleece and skirting types were the again well supported with better tested types up to 25ac dearer, but poorer wools barely maintained their rates. 19.5 micron was strongly sought and gained 15ac whilst the 20.5 to 23-micron wools were 10ac cheaper. Crossbreds were out of favour and fell 45 to 70ac.

Improved growing conditions across most of Australia are becoming evident in the wools now hitting show floors with a noticeable increase in fibre diameter and vegetable matter in Merino types broader that 20 microns a direct consequence of a better season in most areas.

Almost 42,000 bales is currently rostered for sale next week.

Yarding: 4,700 (+3,031). Audio available. (26th November 2020 06:32 AM)
Yarding: 4,700 (+3,031).

The last sale before the annual break attracted a much larger number of 4,700 head at the Blackall weaner and store plus prime sale. A large panel of buyers was present and operating with representatives covering all classes.

Light weight yearling steers returning to the paddock averaged over 20c/kg better. Yearling steers to feed experienced similar price improvements. Light weight yearling heifers to restockers and feed improved by 30c to 40c/kg however most of the lift in prices was attributed to the better quality penned. Cows experienced a mixed trend with store condition lines, and PTIC classes returning to the paddock received very strong support, however export processor lines reduced by a further 7c/kg.

Yearling steers under 200kg returning to the paddock made to 532c to average 484c/kg. Yearling steers under 280kg sold to 528c with a very large selection averaging 475c/kg.

Armidale cattle report (MLA):

Yarding: 950 (+385). Audio available. (26th November 2020 01:35 AM)
Yarding: 950 (+385).

There was an increase in number this fortnight as the weather heats up and feed dries off. All categories were represented, while quality and condition was very mixed. Overall both were well down on the previous sale. There was reduced processor and feedlot competition, however one export processor re- entered the market. Restockers were still active.

Demand from both restockers and feedlotters was weaker. This resulted in cheaper trends through most classes of young cattle. The best of the vealer steers to restockers remained firm, with the heifer portion cheaper. Trade vealers saw a cheaper trend of 10c to 20c/kg. All classes of yearling steers to restock and feed saw trends cheaper with quality variations accounting for some substantial price change. The better quality steers to feed were least affected. Yearling heifers followed similar trends, up to 20c/kg cheaper the better quality lots over 280kg. Those to the trade also saw trends cheaper.

Despite the reintroduction of one major processor, demand for export cattle was weak. This combined with a vast reduction in quality saw heavy grown steers to process show significantly cheaper trends. This followed through to the well finished grown heifers. Reduced competition saw the cow market from 50c to 60c/kg cheaper in the fortnight, with heavy bulls also showing a significantly cheaper trend.

Wagga sheep report (MLA):

Total 32,500 (+600), lambs 23,000 (+600), sheep 9,500 (). (26th November 2020 01:08 AM)
Total 32,500 (+600), lambs 23,000 (+600), sheep 9,500 ().

Lamb supplies decreased with harvest taking priority. Quality was fair to very plain over light weight and trade weight categories. Across heavy lamb classes bigger numbers were dry and long in the wool. Buyers continually picked there way through longer wool types with many major buyers avoiding these stock. Extra heavy lamb numbers dipped noticeably with all under 30kg carcase weight. Restockers were out in force with plenty of orders held by agents and meat buyers. A small field of buyers were in attendance and not all operated fully.

Most domestic processors were active although major domestic buyers were extremely cautious due to the drop in quality. Competition varied with the greatest demand for well finished lambs weighing 22 to 24kg cwt. The bulk of the trade lambs sold $5 cheaper with the 22 to 24kg weights averaging 750c/kg cwt. Store lambs and lambs with weight and frame made from $120 to $170/head. A smaller field of export buyers were in attendance and not all operated fully. Extra heavy lamb prices lifted, driven by a shortage in the market. Young lambs 26 to 30kg gained $7 to average 810c/kg cwt. Shorn lambs weighing over 30kg cwt sold to a top of $277 to average $272/head.

It was a mixed yarding of mutton with a few more numbers of trade and plainer stock. Heavy ewes sold to weaker competition slipping $9 to $20/head. Weathers of any description were keenly sought with some lines making over 700c/kg. Heavy wethers sold from $149 to $257/head. Trade wethers sold from $139 to $166/head to average 610c/kg cwt.

Another good to very good offering of milk vealers were penned in the overall good quality yarding of 297 cattle, 28 more than last week. A similar field of buyers attended and operated in the sale that saw weaker demand and resultant lower prices. Generally, across most categories the market sold to a cheaper trend, led by the milk vealers that softened by 10c to 40c whilst yearlings eased by 10c to 20c/kg as did grown heifers. Cows eased from 20c to 30c and did beef bulls. There were of good quality grown steers were passed in but there was a sale that made to 356c/kg.
