MARKET ROUND UP from the field...
The Bull and Steer schedules are still easing back coming into Xmas. With all this EL Nino talk around the country are we really going to see the dry weather that is predicted? Most parts of the North Island are flourishing with grass at present. We are seeing some strong demand from the Hawkes Bay for older cattle and smaller end or autumn Friesian bulls however the spring weaned bulls are still a plenty.
The 1st of June flurrie we saw a couple of weeks ago has come to a halt with the latest drops in the GDT auctions having stalled the recent positivity and it now looks like most herd buyers will be waiting until the early new year to buy their cows. We have a lot of quality herd listings at present ranging from $1650 - $1950 depending on quality. Weaned dairy heifers are on the move with quality complete replacement lines(CRL) in hot demand trading between $550 - $600 and surplus lines trading around $400 - $450.
BEEF AND SHEEP SECTOR
Store steers 400kg - 500kg are managing to sell just over $3kgLW. Store bulls are trading between $2.70kgLW - $2.80kgLW and heifers trading between $2.60kgLW - $2.80kgLW. Not a lot of demand for young stock at present as it seems people want some decent mouths to eat the abundance of grass around. 100kg -110kg Friesian bulls are trading between $340 - $370 and 110kg - 130kg trading around $380 - $420. Still strong demand on Beef x weaned bull and heifer calves.
