The latest livestock listings, prices and industry news

MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...

Some areas of the country had rain this week with 30mls - 60mls reported in Taranki & Manawatu. Schedules are steady with good numbers of cull cows now being off loaded to help save on feed and get some much needed cashflow. Lamb is setting around $4.80 this week.  

DAIRY SECTOR

Young in milk MT cows are still in good demand with buyers paying $50 - $100 more than the schedule price for good figured cows. Check out our latest market indicator based on dairy listings and sales reported for dairy cattle. We will update this each week to help provide another tool when listing your cattle.
