MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
Its Nearly 1st of June & Gypsy Day for a lot of dairy farmers. Good luck to all the My Loading Ramp buyers and sellers & don't let the payout put a dampener on your new farming ventures as it will only get better from here! Schedules have seen little change except for lamb is around $5.30 now.
With the new season just around the corner and the payout looking like it will be in the mid $4's or better with ASB bank forecasts at $4.60 - $6. We should see dairy cattle prices improve next season with more confidence in the industry and a shortage of heifers and cows for next season due to the high cull rates and less heifers reared last season.
BEEF & SHEEP SECTOR
Demand for store cattle remains strong with R2 Steers fetching around $3.10kgLW and R2 heifers at $2.80kgLW. R2 Friesian bulls are fetching around $2.80 - $3kgLW depending on weights. Store lambs remain strong this week with most fetching $2.30 - $2.40kgLW.
