MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...

With plenty of feed around the country demand for store cattle and sheep are strong. We have plenty of buyers looking, so list your lines with MLR today. Access our nationwide buyers to get the best results for your livestock sales. 

DAIRY SECTOR

Opportunity's a plenty, we're seeing some action on the dairy herd and heifer front. Some of the more quality end herds are selling, with not a major difference in price to the lesser quality herds.  Top herds are trading around the $1300 - $1550 mark with mediums $1000 - $1250 and bottoms at $800 - $1000. Hearing reports of some well grown heifers already off to the works, leaving an abundance of medium grown cattle around for sale. Heifers are hard pressed to achieve more than $1100 this year. Some real opportunity in purchasing these cattle in the current climate. R1 heifers continue to trade between $450-$600 with these starting to become a per kg price on some of these lines for attractive beef propositions. Most of our vendors selling on MLR are prepared to negotiate, so don’t be afraid to use our “make a offer” button you never know what might come of it.
