Total 8,600 (+4,600), lambs 7,000 (+3,450), sheep 1,600 (+1,150).

Despite further rain across the supply area, agents penned additional numbers this week. The quality was mixed with the regular grain assisted lambs available and a larger offering of store lambs. Most of the usual buyers were present, however, not all were operating fully in a market that was firm to softer in places.

Wagga sheep report (MLA) (16/6):

Total 46,750 (+20,850), lambs 40,950 (+18,950), sheep 5,800 (+1,900). Quality across trade categories was fair to excellent. (17th June 2021 07:31 AM)
Total 46,750 (+20,850), lambs 40,950 (+18,950), sheep 5,800 (+1,900).

Numbers doubled on the back of last weeks much dearer trends. Quality across trade categories was fair to excellent. Lambs weighing 26 to 30kg sold to erratic bidding with some buyers not prepared to chase the market. Lambs weighing more than 30kg were in good numbers, with most buyers keen to acquire a market share of the heaviest pens. A full field of buyers were in attendance, however there was very little restocker and feedlot competition.

In the trade market bidding was erratic. Longer wool lambs dragged prices back which contributed to the cheaper average prices. Lambs weighing 22 to 24kg slipped $10/head to average 841c/kg cwt. Merino trade lambs sold to a smaller group of buyers and most categories showed slightly weaker trends across all classes. Merino trade lambs weighing 22 to 24kg, averaged 715c/kg cwt while young lambs returning to the paddock sold from $109 to $194/head.

There was the usual field of export buyers in attendance and not all were operating fully. Heavy and extra heavy lambs sold to weaker demand from both domestic and export processors. Heavy 24 to 26kg sold $10/head cheaper to average 805c, while lambs weighing 26 to 30kg sold to patchy demand, to average 740c/kg cwt. Extra heavy lambs over 30kg sold to steady bidding with some buyers very selective.

The bulk sold from $210 to $290, with extra heavy Merino lambs making from $255 to $276/head.

It was another mixed quality yarding of mutton with heavy sheep in shorter supply. Not all buyers participated across heavy or trade categories. Most heavy sheep were small cleanout pens, with very few big runs on offer. Heavy ewes sold mostly to one major northern processor and made from $182 to $260/head to average 644c/kg cwt. Trade sheep sold either side of firm to average 672c to 705c/kg cwt.

Numbers fell to 700 head at the last Blackall prime sale for the 2021 financial year. It was a good quality yarding and despite the limited numbers available, the return of a major export processor helped cows and bullocks hold firm to slightly dearer on previous weeks. Heavy feeder steers saw a lift of 15c/kg on average, while a run of vendor bred restocker heifers saw good local competition.

Light weight restocker steers up to 280kg reached a top of 562c to average 530c/kg. Good quality steers weighing 330 to 400kg sold to an isolated 488c, with most making around 412c and heavy feeder steers topping at 430c to average 417c/kg. Light weight restocker heifers made to 480c to average 460c/kg. Heifers weighing 280 to 330kg returning to the paddock, made to a top of 466c to average 426c and heifers to feed sold to a top of 412c/kg.

Heavy heifers to kill sold to 350c to average 320c/kg. Medium cows sold to a top of 295c to average 282c, and good heavy cows sold to 298c to average 293c/kg. Heavy bullocks sold to a top of 352c and those to feed made to 400c/kg.

Following the previous sales wet weather, market numbers lifted by almost 1,500. It was a good quality yarding with some top runs of grown steers and good young cattle to suit the feeders and processors. There were also good numbers of weaners suitable for the restockers yarded along with around 200 cows. The usual field of buyers were in attendance and operating.

Young cattle to the trade were firm with prime vealers selling to 518c/kg. Prime steer yearlings sold from 380c to 510c while the prime heifer yearlings sold from 410c to 518c/kg. Light weight feeder steers and heifers were 10c/kg dearer, while the heavier weight feeders were a little cheaper. Feeder steers sold from 429c to 512c while the feeder heifers sold from 398c to 477c/kg. Young cattle to the restockers were dearer with the young steers selling from 500c to 679c, while the young heifer portion sold from 468c to 556c/kg. Steer yearlings to the backgrounders sold from 515c to 549c/kg.

Emerald cattle report (MLA, inc audio):

Yarding: 632 (-376). Ave c/bu: Yrlng: hfs 342 (-74) str 399 (-69). Grwn: hfs 324 (+3) str 376 (+16). Cows 271 (-12). Bulls 332 (-6). (17th June 2021 02:52 AM)

Emerald vendors penned a smaller yarding of 632, down by 376 head on last week. Cattle came from all local draw areas to comprise a mixed quality offering. The usual processors were again short one major operator and one small operator which contributed to an easing of those classes.

Vealer steers topped at 489c to average 467c/kg. Yearling steers made from 410c to 417c for the best-bred lines, whilst the heifer portion sold to a top of 357c and averaged from 329c to 344c/kg. Grown steers sold to feed from 365c to 409c, whilst those to processors averaged 365c/kg for finished pens. Grown heifers going to feeders and processors made from 316c to 347c/kg.

Score 4 cows averaged 289c to processors, with PTIC pens to restockers averaging 303c/kg. Heavy bulls sold to a top of 333c/kg. A few cows and calves made from $1,700 to $2,700/unit.

Yarding: 600 (-210). Ave c/bu: Yrlng: hfs 426 (+38) str 472 (+27). Grwn: hfs 323 (-7) str 372 (+8). Cows 291 (+5). Bulls 269 (-9). Veal: hfs 510 (+24) str 579 (+27).

There was a reduced penning at Armidale cattle sale this week, with the quality fair to good. There was variation in condition, with the majority of young cattle suited to restocking and feedlot purposes. The grown cattle were well finished in the main lines with some cows carrying an excess. There was a similar gallery of processors in attendance along with good support from restocker and feedlot buyers.

Strong restocker demand resulted in substantially dearer market trends for vealer steers. Lighter weight heifer vealers to restockers also sold to a much dearer trend. The few heavier weights were cheaper with quality contributing. Yearling steers to restock and feed also sold to dearer trends, however there was a large price range with breed and quality a factor. Yearling heifers also sold to dearer trends with the increased demand.

Well finished heavy grown steers to process sold on a firm to slightly dearer market trend. There was little change in the cow market with some classes showing an improvement in quality. Restocker demand was high for a small number of PTIC cows.

Just 290 cattle were yarded with only two of the three stock agencies selling amid limited numbers in the area this winter. There was a bit of everything on offer, from heavy steers coming from grain, vealers, Friesian cows and some plainer pastoral cattle. Despite the small yarding, all the regular buyers still attended and the market was very strong on young cattle under 450kg and processing cows, with price gains of 10c to 25c/kg across these categories. In comparison, there was only marginal price improvements for heavy steers and heifers over 550kg.

The best vealers showing muscle and freshness, sold from 500c to 535c/kg to domestic processors. Only a few good yearling feeder steers inthe 330 to 400kg range were offered and lifted to a top of
526c/kg. Underneath these sales was a mixed run of young cattle off grass which generally made from 450c to 495c/kg, with only secondary breed types making less.

A line of heavy Angus Charolais-cross grown steers and heifers off grain, weighing 500 to 600kg, sold from 400c to 433c/kg. The odd heavy grass bullock received subdued attention, selling from 356c to 388c/kg. Cows were a highlight of the market, with clean heavy beef bred females consistently making over 320c, topping at 355c/kg. Plainer conditioned cows, including some lines of Friesians, sold from 248c to 280c/kg to show little change on a fortnight ago.

Numbers reduced only slightly to offer 574 young cattle and 327 export. One exporter was absent however the regular buyers attended and operated at mostly firm to slightly dearer trends throughout. It was a well presented offering of grown steers and heifers and this reflected in a dearer trend for those categories.

Light weaner steers showed only a minor correction, back 3c, while the heavier drafts were dearer, up 14c/kg. Light heifers saw a very firm trend with a 1c increase, while the heavier drafts on the other hand, sold to a rise of 23c/kg. Light trade veal also sold to a firm trend. Very light yearling steers were dearer, however, light and medium weights saw a correction owing to a lack of quality through some of the offering.
Light feeder heifers sold to dearer trends.

Heavy grown steers saw positive rises, up 13c/kg. The heifer portion, with an improvement in quality, also sold to dearer trends, up 25c/kg.
Medium weight cows were cheaper with a downturn in weight and quality. Heavy cows presented well, but with a slight downturn in trends.
Heavy score 4 cows sold only marginally cheaper, back 2c, while the score 3 cows were back 9c/kg. There was restocker competition through the bull vealer market, that sold to a top of 570c/kg.

Numbers climbed a little this week as agents yarded 327 head of live weight and open auction cattle. These sold to the regular field of trade and processor buyers with both feeders and restockers present and active over the offering. Quality was generally good although small in numbers in certain categories. This made quoting difficult in most areas while cows continued to be in demand to sell to dearer rates.

A small number of mixed sex vealers came forward to sell from 487c to 520c/kg. Yearling steers to the trade made from 365c to 462c, while the heifer portion made from 391c to 485c/kg. Feeders sought steers from 382c to 500c and heifers from 362c to 460c/kg. There was some restocker activity on steers that made from 451c to 500c/kg.

Numbers lifted with vealer steers and heifers making up the majority of the cattle penned. Yearlings were limited in supply, while the cows were mainly prime heavy weights, with PTIC cows suitable for restockers also in the penning. The market trend was firm to dearer although younger vealer steers to the restockers struggled in places to maintain firm prices.

Vealer steers over 200kg to the restockers remained firm for the better bred end, while the overall average trended cheaper with prices ranging from 478c to 600c, and up to 536c/kg for the heavier pens. Vealer heifers also to the restockers trended dearer in places with breed and quality contributing and returned prices from 450c to 556c/kg. Yearling heifers to the lot feeders also trended dearer, with medium weights making from 474c to 482c/kg. The prime conditioned younger cattle to the butchers sold at a premium, with the best vealers topping
at 518c/kg.

Heavy weight grown steers showing 2 teeth reached 360c to the processors, with the well finished lighter weights to the lot feeders topping at 448c/kg. Cows trended 15c dearer, with restockers paying up to 368c for the PTIC light weights and 364c/kg for the heavier drafts. Heavy weight cows to the processors ranged from 280c to 320c, while the better heavy weight bulls reached a top of 300c/kg.

Smaller yardings persist at the Roma Store Sale, with numbers down by 661 to 4,088 head. Cattle continue to be drawn from a wide supply area and the overall quality of the yarding was mixed.

The limited numbers of light weight steers improved, as did the heavy weight steers while medium weight yearling steers eased through quality related demand. Heifers mostly eased while restocker demand for PTIC females was strong. Variations in quality contributed to the price fluctuations. Light weight yearling steers under 200kg improved by 28c/kg.
