Another steady week for NI & SI beef and lamb schedules, with a short week helping to keep most processors full. The GDT auction overall was up 2.7% this week, with WMP only slighty up at 0.9%. Most dairy herds are selling around $1600 - $1900 depending on quality. Incalf heifers are around $1400 - $1500. The store cattle markets have eased overall, with large numbers of cattle available at present, and buying power not as strong as previous weeks. Run weaner steers are trading around $3.80kgLW for 250kg, with heifers around $3.30kgLW. R2 steers are still fetching around $3kgLW, with heifers around $2.70kgLW. R2 Frieisan bulls are trading at $2.60 - $2.70kgLW. Store lambs remain in good demand, with most trading around $3.30 - $3.50kgLW.
Have a great week from the MLR team.
