Total 14,063 (+3,987), lambs 11,293 (+3,986), sheep 2,770 (+1).
Agents penned over 4,000 new season lambs this week. The quality was excellent, however, despite this, prices did soften across the market. Only a small buying team were present with both domestic and export processors absent. New season lambs were fresh and finished to a tee. Trades weights in general eased $7 to $14 with light and medium weights selling from $148 to $177/head. Domestic processors all operated on the heavy trade lambs, 22 to 24kg but were not prepared to go that extra mile with lambs selling between $175 and $184/head averaging 760c/kg cwt. Heavy lambs were making between $184 and $194, easing $9/head. Light MK bag lambs were scarce, selling from $126 to $148/head. Old trade weight lambs continued with trade weights selling from $144 to $177, easing $9 to $15 averaging between 700c and 753c/kg cwt. Heavy and extra heavy lambs eased $8 to $12, making from $168 to $219 and export types reached $221, slipping $10 to $11/head, averaging 586c/kg cwt. Merino lambs softened $10 to $20 this week with trade weights making from $126 to $151 and heavy types sold from $142 to $165/head. Mutton numbers remained the same and sold with minimal changes. Heavy cross bred ewes made up to $198 and heavy Merino wethers reached $188/head. Trade sheep sold from $110 to $148/head.

Bendigo sheep report (MLA): Total 13,000 (+7,470), lambs 9,000 (+5,800), sheep 4,000 (+1,670).
Demand remained patchy, with several processors still not active. (3rd August 2020 04:39 AM)
Total 13,000 (+7,470), lambs 9,000 (+5,800), sheep 4,000 (+1,670).
Lamb numbers built to 9,000 head as some new season lambs start to appear. Demand remained patchy, with several processors still not active and bidding was very erratic as those buyers still operating tried to work out values. The trend was softer for extra heavy old lambs, while the the neater trade pens sold at similar rates to a week ago. The quality of the young lambs on offer was very good, while old season lambs remain mixed for breed type and finish. There was one sale of young lambs to $192, but it wasn't indicative of the general trend which was $162 to $176/head for suckers sized from 22 to 27kg cwt. The tight dollar per head range meant the heaviest young lambs started at 620c and went to over 700c/kg cwt on the more nicely weighted domestic types. A run of young Merino lambs sent down from Hay in the Riverina sold to $130 for an estimated 16kg cwt, with the second and third drafts making $110 and $80/head to the paddock. Heavy old lambs sold to $199/head for a pen of all ewes that were booked to a stock agent. Extra heavy lambs to processors made from $176 to $195 to ease $7/head at an estimated 520c to 540c/kg cwt. After this, most crossbred lambs sized from 21 to 30kg varied from $150 to $180/head to fluctuate from 600c to 700c/kg cwt, with just select pens higher. Merino lambs with good carcass finish made from $145 to $175/headto be in a similar carcass price band to crossbreds. The sheep sale was very erratic, with just a handful of buyers active and pitching varied money at auctioneers. It created some big price discrepancies across categories, such as $142 to $205/head for heavy crossbred ewes. The feature lines of Merino wethers held their value the best.

Emerald cattle report (MLA): Yarding: 1,700 (+150).
Competition was strong and values for the best bred lines improved. (30th July 2020 06:37 AM)
Yarding: 1,700 (+150).
There was a yarding of 1,700 head at Emerald, 150 head more than last week. Cattle came from local areas and north towards Charters Towers and it was a good quality offering with larger numbers of bullocks and heavy feeder steers together with a good sample of heavy cows. The usual panel of feeder and restocker buyers were in attendance along with an additional processor. Competition was strong and values for the best bred lines improved. Vealer heifers sold to 381c to average 373c/kg. Yearling steers averaged 381c/kg for the well bred lines, irrespective of weight. Processors paid to 369c for the best yearling heifers to average from 321c to 356c/kg.
