MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
Facial eczema is proving to be a major problem in Taranaki and Waikato dairy herds with sheep and beef farmers also seeing affects now. The issue will now be a wait and see how bad its being once spring comes and cows start calving. We had our first frost in the Manawatu this week so this will help as we start heading for winter. Schedules are steady again this week with just a lift in Lamb at around $5.
Decisions are being made and it's great to see farmers working with the current climate and making the most of the opportunities that are out there. Herds are selling around the country at present and we have witnessed some rather strong pedigree clearing sales in the Waikato and Taranaki. It seems top quality cows and incalf heifers remain in demand. We have strong demand on MLR for lesser quality incalf heifers from $800 - $1000 and more higher end lines at $1100 - $1200.
