THE WEEKLY WEIGH-IN

The latest livestock listings, prices and industry news

MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...

With MLR 2 years old today, we would like to update our users on where we see the livestock industry heading with online sales. Livestock agents play a large part to the success of our platform 'MLR'. Most farmers are not ready to market their livestock on their own. We're seeing some farmers happy to sell their livestock themselves, and it works well for them, but we also see agents playing a large role in helping with quality control, weighing, drafting, trucking, any issues that arise, as well as foward contracts & payments.

 

We think MLR is a great mix, as the agents can use it to help achieve more buying power from a large nationwide network of agents and farmers, which then helps their vendors get the best price possible. For the farmers who are happy selling their own livestock, this also gives them a great network to achieve the best price available in New Zealand. Another thing we have learnt over the last 2 years is that almost all listings that are priced within the market will sell on MLR, so to have a successful sale make sure you check the values are aligned within the market. 

 

We're keen to talk to all stock companies and recieve their feedback. If any stock agents or stock firms have any questions, or would like to know more about our livestock marketing, feel free to contact Luke on the number below. 

 

Testimonial from one of our happy users. 

We have used MLR for 2yrs now and sell our annual draft of Hereford bulls each autumn. We weigh them on farm, draft into lines, then list with photos. In both years we have sold all bulls at prices well above our local market with them going to Waikato, Manawatu and Southland. MLR gives us access to a nationwide market of both reputable agents and farmers which is great.

DAIRY SECTOR

The service bull season is well underway, with Herefords being the popular option with most 2yrs fetching from $2,200 - $3,000 depending on quality. 1yr bulls are also fetching around $2,000 or more. Its a different story for Jersey this year, with 2yrs bulls selling from $1300 - $1800 and 1yr bulls around $600 - $1000. Some early sales did fetch up to $1400. Seems to be large numbers of 1yr & 2yr Jerseys availble, and less demand due to dairy heifer numbers well back on last season, and more herds going to Hereford.  Other beef bulls are also selling well with Angus and Murray Grey being well sought after. 

BEEF & SHEEP SECTOR

The 100kg Friesian bulls will start to flow over the coming weeks, with early bulls selling around $450 - $480 this week. This will ease as numbers hit the market later this month. Store cattle prices remain steady again this week, with most thinking this will ease over the coming weeks. Friesian 1yr bulls are trading around $3kgLW - $3.40kgLW. R2 bulls are fetching $2.80kgLW - $3kgLW depending on quality.
