THE WEEKLY WEIGH-IN

The latest livestock listings, prices and industry news

MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...

We are still getting great scattered rain around the country helping to keep the grass growing for some areas. Some radical things happening amongst dairy farmers around NZ currently with 'Diversity' on the table from opportunities with beef, calf rearing, finishing stock or trading. We are facing some extremely interesting times ahead for farmers and the wider industry as a whole. 

DAIRY SECTOR

Pregnancy testing is under way on most dairy farms and we are hearing reports of MT rates between 9% - 17%. If you have any quality young MT cows that are just too good to send to the works then list them on MLR today as we have active buyers scanning our site every day. Large numbers of cows and heifers still flood the market with a limited number of buyers to take up the slack. Autumn calving cows are in demand with some farmers changing systems and chasing the all year round cashflow.

Herd  I/C Heifers Wnr Heifers Aut Calving Cows
$1300 - $1700  $1000 - $1450  $400 - $600  $1200 - $1600  

BEEF & SHEEP SECTOR

There is a general shortage of cattle on quote at present.  We are lacking listings in the beef sector with buyers swarming, so if you have any sort of beef cattle to sell then be sure to list them today as they are going HOT. The store lamb job is steady to firming with plenty of feed and limited numbers hitting the market as most farmers opt to put weight on them. Most lambs are trading between $2kgLW - $2.20kgLW.
