Overall beef schedules remain steady this week, apart from SI Cow back around 20 cents. NI lamb is at $7.05, with SI lamb steady at $6.70. On the dairy front, there is plenty of dairy herds and heifers to choose from at present, with prices remaining steady. With only two months till 1st June, we may start to see prices reduce on certan lines of cows and heifers. On the beef & sheep front, store cattle prices remain steady on last week. Overall run weaners are back up to $200 on last year, with the dry weather and easing schedules looking to be the main concern to buyers. Store lambs numbers are increasing, with most trading around $3.50kgLW.
Have a great week from the MLR team.
