MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
More good rain over the last few days, with warm temperatures seeing good grass growth for many regions. Schedules are all back around 10 cents this week, as the flow of dairy cows keeps the meat processors going, and the NZ dollar moves higher.
Autumn calving is now under way, with Friesian bull calves fetching good money on the back of the strong beef markets. Good quality calves are making around $200 - $250 with lesser quality under $200. Beef calves are in strong demand with these selling all north of $300 at present. Limited numbers of these available in the autumn sees demand far exceeding supply. Dairy cows and heifers are still moving at the lower end of the market, with clearing sales due to kick off over the next week or so.
