Glenburnie Livestock Report 10/1/18

Cattle markets have experienced a sluggish start with numbers and prices mixed.  Plain, inferior breed cattle met with least competition.  Numbers in bullock section saw prices ease 5 to 7 cents and more on dairy type steers.  The young cattle market met strong feed lot orders and put a strong base in prices.  The trade vealers sold to dearer rates with steers selling to 321c and heifers 296c.  They needed to show freshness and B muscle.  Yearling heifers eased 5 to 10 cents due to the number of vealers yarded.  The larger cow offering saw prices 8 to 10 cents cheaper with only the best beef cows selling to 220c, mainly 205c to 212c/kg.

877 yearlings and vealers yarded with most of the young cattle market consigned of milk vealers.  Some vealers have started to lose their Spring bloom while good, B muscled vealers showing freshness sold at dearer rates and strong feed lot orders provided a good base in the plainer vealers.

 SHEEP AND LAMBS:   Drafted & Presented by Auctioneer Scott Miller and Liam Durcan.

5327 sheep sold, 1359 less than last week.   In a smaller yarding combined with a reduced buyers gallery, lambs sold to subdued competition.  The majority of the yarding was woolly lambs of forward store condition along with shorn lambs fresh, but with short skins hampering good returns.  Premium lambs therefore “stood out” and it wasn’t until latter sales this was evident.  Export lambs 26 to 30kg plus were $184 to $200 and 24 to 26kg at $160 to $176 hence various exporters absences on heavy lambs dropped by $5 to $12.  Supermarket forces and some trade orders due to quality, dropped markedly from $157 to $161 for 22 to 24kg lambs.  Minimal opportunities on all trade lambs saw values from $130 to $154 drop by $4 to $6, because of drying conditions all lambs were affected.  Restocking orders held the fray, holding the value of lighter weights from $61 to $126.

 Quotations:  A/c Reg Edwards & Son 100L @ $200 – “market top”.
