TRLX Tamworth sheep report (MLA):

Total 4,000 (+2,300), lambs 1,600 (+400), sheep 2,400 (+1,900). The quality and condition of the lambs varied greatly, with quite a few lacking bloom (17th January 2022 07:22 AM)
Total 4,000 (+2,300), lambs 1,600 (+400), sheep 2,400 (+1,900).

There was an increase in the lamb numbers, while sheep supplies increased 5 fold. The quality and condition of the lambs varied greatly, with quite a few lacking bloom, and drying out in the skin. There were still some very good lambs penned. The usual processors and local restockers were in attendance. There was a new processor operating in the sheep market.

Market trends varied through the lambs with the plainest of the young restocker lambs selling to a dearer trend. The better quality lots saw a firm to cheaper market trend. The well finished lines to processors saw little change. Heavy weight old lambs sold to a dearer trend on the back of in creased supply and competition.

Despite the inclusion of an extra processor in the sheep market, demand was weaker throughout. This resulted in all trends being cheaper.
The heavy and extra heavy weights were least affected. There was a single pen dearer that include hoggets and young sheep.

Bendigo sheep report (MLA):

Total 16,000 (+7,500), lambs 11,500 (+5,200), sheep 4,500 (+2,300). There was some very good fed shorn lambs in the heavy weight (17th January 2022 07:21 AM)
Total 16,000 (+7,500), lambs 11,500 (+5,200), sheep 4,500 (+2,300).

Another quiet yarding with just 11,500 lambs and 4500 sheep. There was some very good fed shorn lambs in the heavy weight ranges which were expected to yield well, while quality over the general run of lambs off grass was mixed. There was six regular processing orders that were either absent or didn't purchase stock to Covid-19 staffing issues at abattoirs. However there was still enough demand to keep lamb prices at similar levels to a week ago. Although some secondary lambs and small penlots didn't attract a lot of buyer attention, with the market favouring the better finished shorn lambs off grain or pellets. The sale also tended to loose some momentum as it progressed.

The heaviest export lambs over 30kg cwt sold from $250 to a top of $276/head, ranging from an estimated 780c to 830c/kg cwt. Pens of shorn and fed lambs in the 24-27kg cwt range sold to the best demand at $204 to $235/head, most sales trending from 840c to 870c/kg cwt.
The general run of domestic lamb with less carcass finish from $175 to $195/head. Woolly unshorn lambs didn't receive as much support as the shorn types, with buyers wary of condition underneath the pelt. The lead of the woolly young lambs from $185 to a top of $208/head for pens in the heavy trade category. Light lambs to restockers and MK processing orders from $135 to $165/head for the better framed types.
The selection of Merino lambs was generally plain and in the lighter weight grades, selling to $180/head. There was some very secondary and small lambs that sold from $24 to $80/head.

The sheep yarding still had a reasonable selection of weights and grades considering the low numbers. Heavy Merino ewes in wool sold to $210, with the heaviest crossbred ewes also reaching $210/head. Most trade and heavy sheep sold from $130 to $180/head at an estimated cost of 520c to 590c/kg cwt.

The numbers increased to a closer than normal level. Yearlings were well supplied, will most other categories represented. The quality of the offering was fair to good, quite a few Bos indicus cattle penned. The condition showed varying levels of finish. There was an increased gallery of buyers, however processor activity was below the usual.

High restocker demand resulted in vealers selling to a significantly dearer trend, along with an improvement in quality. Medium weight yearling steers to restock and feedsold on a firm to slightly dearer market trend. The heavy weight feeder steers saw little but quality and breed related price change. Medium weight yearling heifers in greater supply sold to cheaper trends with breed a factor in price change. Heavy weights sold to a dearer trend.

Saleyard supply remains low as processing at some abattoirs continues to be restricted to small throughput because of Covid. Not all the regular buyers attended the sale or even operated. Prices however for the generally good quality offering of 237 head witnessed grown steers 10c to 20c dearer and chopper cows 10c to 15c/kg higher due to restocker competition. The rest of the yarding averaged unchanged in prices.

Vealers sold from 480c to 540c with yearlings from 460c to 525c and restockers paid to 548c/kg. The grown steers mainly sold between 425c and 430c to processors and restockers while a pen of three head made 445c/kg and went to a processor.

Beef cows were from 280c to 310c and a restocker paid 350c/kg. Most of the leaner cows made between 270c and 290c with the best of the restocking sales to 335c/kg.

Numbers increased marginally as vendors hold cattle back due to the limited processing capabilities at most abattoirs. There was only a small selection of trade heifers and steers offered. Heavy export numbers increased however the bulk of the stock were purchased by lot feeders.
The balance of the cattle were secondary types suiting lot feeders, back grounders. The regular export and domestic processors were in a attendance however, very few operated.

Trade cattle supplies remain limited, and most domestic processors were not interested in bidding. A single steer suitable for the trade sold at 540c/kg. Trade heifers made to 468c/kg. Well-bred steers 280-330kg returning to the paddock were in limited supply selling from 690c to 705c/kg to average $2161/head.

The feeder market opened on a tentative note with several buyers not prepared to chase the market. Price for lighter weight steers 330kg to
400kg lifted 5c to average 553c/kg. Quality lines of well-bred secondary steers 400kg to 500kg met solid competition making from 512c to 554c/kg. Heifers to suit feedlots were in reasonable supply with a good portion weighing more than 500kg. Medium weight heifers sold 16c cheaper averaging 516c/kg. There were quite a few quality lines of well-bred heifers under 400kg and buying competition increased resulting in a dearer trend of 38c/kg on the lack-lustre sale of the previous week.

Heavy steers and bullocks sold to feedlots, with processors rarely entering the fray. Feeder steers made from 450c to 540c/kg. Heavy heifers were in reasonable numbers, with feedlots keen to purchase younger types. Heifers to feed on sold from 420c to 550c/kg. Heifers suitable for processors sold from 354c to 455c/kg. In the cow market a smaller field of buyers operated.

It was a fair quality yarding with some good young cattle to suit the trade buyers and feeder operators though the feeder steer quality was back with a larger influence of Bos Indicus cattle. There were around 110 cows penned and there were very few grown steers and heifers yarded. Not all the regular buyers were operating with some export processors yet to return.

Young cattle to the trade were firm with the prime steer yearlings selling from 530c to 580c while the prime heifer yearlings sold from 500c to 598c/kg. Feeder steers were 15c cheaper while the feeder heifers were 10c to 13c/kg dearer. Feeder steers sold from 510c to 600c while the feeder heifers sold from 450c to 599c/kg. Young cattle to the restockers were up to 20c cheaper on quality with the young steers selling from 600c to 702c while the young restocker heifers sold from 548c to 610c/kg.

There were too few grown steers and heifers to quote. Cows were 15c to 20c/kg cheaper compared to the previous sales much dearer market. 2 and 3 score cows sold from 320c to 366c while the prime heavy weight cows sold from 360c to 405c to average 388c/kg. Heavy bulls sold to 362c/kg.

Numbers were very low to start proceedings for the new year. Expected to increase with sales gazetted to become weekly going forward. All categories were represented with small numbers in each class. There was restricted processor and feedlot attendance, however retocker demand was high. The quality of the offering was on the plainer side.

The quality variation was particularly noticeable through the young cattle with this impacting price change through the young cattle. Taking the plainer quality into account, high restocker demand resulted in market trends improving on yearling steers in comparison to the pre Christmas sale. That was also the case through the yearling heifers.

Heavy grown steers to process saw a firm to slightly dearer trend. Well finished grown heifers to processors sold to cheaper trends under restricted processor competition. A drop in quality and reduced processor competition resulted in cheaper trends through the cow market.
There was not a lot of change in the market for the better quality bulls to process.

Total 6,942 (-1,699), lambs 3,527 (-1,854), sheep 3,415 (+155).

Numbers were back and the quality again was mixed with some very good shorn lambs alongside lambs that were light and lacked finished.

Guyra sheep report (MLA):

Total 1,400. There was a limited supply of lambs to suit processors with the majority of the offering purchased by restockers. (12th January 2022 06:12 AM)
Total 1,400.

A small penning to start the new year. There was a limited supply of lambs to suit processors with the majority of the offering purchased by restockers. Light weight young lambs made up a large percentage. There was a restricted processor attendance.
Restocker confidence was high with the store lambs attracting strong competition. They sold as well as they had prior to Christmas. For the most part on a dressed weight comparison they were dearer. Trade and heavy weight lambs to processors sold to cheaper trends , the limited supply and restricted competition playing a role. There was a very good line of heavy weight Merino lambs penned. No Market comparison available.

There were insufficient sheep for a quote, however restockers and processors were active.

Total 14,678 (-11,280), lambs 14,678 (-12,280), sheep (+NQ).

At Hamilton agents yarded 14,678 lambs and the quality was from very good to plain with some lambs showing dryness in the wool and as a result there are more and more lambs being offered shorn. Despite this there was a good offering of lambs suitable for the trade. There was a near full field of buyers, most were active despite some works shut down or slowed by Covid-19. Restocking competition was still in force on the lighter weight lambs. Despite the uncertainty the market was very strong to be $20 to $40/head dearer over most categories with lambs to the trade leading the rise.

New season light 12kg to 16kg lambs made from $104 to $176/head most of these returning to the paddock.

Trade lambs 18kg to 22kg made from $158 to $209/head averaging around 850c to 920c/kg/cwt. Medium trade lambs 22kg to 26kgs made from $176 to $238/head averaging around 850c to 900c/kg cwt. Heavy lambs over 26kgs made to $252/head.
