MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
Finally some rain to help kick the grass along before Winter. Schedules are firm this week with most dairy farmers doing there last cull as they dry off.
Cattle trucks are on the road moving heifers around for 1st May and getting ready for gypsy day. Its generally a busy period on the stock front with some last minute deals happening, and decisions being made as to buy, sell, or hold on to dairy cattle until the spring. Markets have certainly firmed in the past couple of weeks with quality selling strong, mediums are moving, and tail enders are either off to the works or meeting the market. Still demand through MLR for quality Friesian type incalf cattle and anything with high BWs.
