MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
Silver Fern Farms have this week said the future is grim if the shareholders don't vote for the merger with Shanghai Maling on August 12. I guess time will tell what will be best for NZ going forward. We are still seeing strong demand for store cattle this week so if you have a line for sale, list them on MLR today. Schedules are firm again this week.
Friesian bull calves are in good demand this week. Most good bulls are fetching from $150 - $200 with beef calves making $250 - $300. As more calves hit the market over the coming weeks these prices will ease up. There is good demand for 1yr dairy heifers with Friesian export orders, and a good local market for Fries x lines. Depending on figures and weights prices are around $700 - $800. List your surplus line of heifers with MLR.
BEEF & SHEEP SECTOR
Same old story again this week with store cattle still selling well. Good lines of Autumn born Friesian bulls are fetching $550 - $600 with Beef x bulls around $600 and heifers around $550. Store lambs are still selling well with most fetching around $2.60kgLW - $2.80kgLW.
