THE WEEKLY WEIGH-IN
The latest livestock listings, prices and industry news
MARKET ROUND UP FROM THE FIELD...
Still some rain getting dumped across the country, however the East Coast of the North Island and Northland are dry. Very unusual weather pattens for this time of year. The South Island livestock market is very bouyant, with large amounts of grass brings huge demand for cattle. Plenty of stock trucks coming up empty and going down loaded.

Herds and incalf heifers are definitely on the move, with top herds making up to $2,150 with the rest of herds making $1,800 - $1,900. Some incalf heifers are trading between $1,500 - $1,700 however there is a big influx of incalf heifers hitting the market and we suspect it will level off coming closer to 1st May. Wnr dairy heifers are making up to $850 for Friesian types but anything Xbred or Jersey are sitting around $600 - $700. MT cows are just starting to come out, it's early days but were seeing a big demand for young MT cows with good figures due to the lack of incalf carry overs on the market. Autumn calvers are still very saleable trading between $1,700 - $2,000.
BEEF & SHEEP SECTOR
Prime steer and heifer is holding in there with the cull cow and bull job gone off the boil. Store bulls 450kg are trading around $2.50 - $2.60kgLW and 300kg store bulls making around $2.70 kgLW. Wnr bulls 120kg -150kg are making between $550 - $600. R2 beef x heifers are sitting around the $2.70kgLW mark and Steers fetching around the $3kgLW mark.
