MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
A warm week for most with 30 degree days as well as rain keeping the grass growing. The country has baleage everywhere you go leaving most farmers holding onto stock. Schedules lifted again this week showing signs that the supply is not there at present.
Dairy cattle prices look set to remain sluggish for the rest of this season due to the payout now at $4.15, however farming is a long term investment so planning for next season is key with most bankers predicting $5.50 - $6.50 for next season. With the large cow kill and less heifer calves reared along with a better payout we should see demand and prices improve next season. On a hard year the more you market your dairy stock the better chance you have to sell them so remember to get them on myloadingramp.nz so we can spead them throughout the country for you.
BEEF & SHEEP SECTOR
Store lambs are hard to find due to good feed levels with most trading around $2.20kgLW - $2.40kgLW. Due to the $5 schedule this will keep a cap on the store market. Breeding ewes are in good demand though with most trading around $80 - $140 depending on quality. Store cattle are still in good demand as the feed keeps growing with limited numbers available. R2 Friesian bulls are trading at $2.50kgLW - $2.80kgLW with R2 Beef Steers & Heifers are fetching around $3kgLW.
