TAS Country : February 16th 2012
Friday, February 17, 2012 Tasmanian Country 17 Yearlings in demand from restockers RICHARD BAILEY THERE was a slightly larger total yarding of 205 trade and export cattle at Killafaddy on Tuesday, with most of the increase being grown steers and bullocks. The trade cattle market was 2c to 6c/kg cheaper on average with most vealers making 195c to 224c/kg and yearling heifers 176c to 194c/kg. Restockers bought almo- st all the yearling steers for 185c to 206c/kg or $756 to $906/head. There was a larger yard- ing of 58 grown steers and bullocks, with the steers making 174c to 189c/kg, heavy bullocks 165c to 187c/kg and extra heavy (over 750kg) 158c to 173c/kg, topping at $1323/head. There was a similar number of 43 cows and these sold to a stronger market with heavy pens making 130c to 141c/kg (average 137c/kg) while re- stockers paid 103c to 140c/kg or $497 to $676/head. There was another small penning of prime lambs and following recent local and interstate trends, most lambs were $4 to $6/head cheaper. Heavy lambs sold for $105 to $127, trade $90 to $111 and light trade $75 to $90/head. Most lambs are still in the wool and many are showing the affects of re- cent hot weather. Buyers showed a strong preference for well- finished shorn lambs.

In Victoria, numbers were much smaller but that made no difference until Wednesday at Hamil- ton where the market actu- ally improved. At Bendigo on Monday there were 10,572 lambs penned (9755 less than last week) and at Ballarat 17,100 (12,755 less) while at Hamilton on Wednesday there were only 7350 (9657 less). For this time of the year these are very small num- bers with producers obvi- ously unhappy with cur- rent price levels. Finishers, who paid between $90 and $120 for store lambs before Christmas, are also not wanting to sell at current prices. From the sellers point of view, feed grain is cheap and although much of Vic- toria has got dry there are still many lambs on fodder crops. At Ballarat, most three score trade lambs made $96 to $122 and ranged from 420c to 500c/kg while heavy lambs made $117 to $140 with most averaging 430c/kg, dressed weight. At Hamilton trade lambs averaged 480c/kg and heavy pens 450c/kg which is getting back to values being paid a few weeks ago. Locally at Quoiba, heavy lambs made $120 to $129, trade $110 to $120 and lighter $90 to $105/head. At Killafaddy heavy lambs made $105 to $118, with extra heavy (over 24kg) $120 to $127 while trade lambs made $85 to $111 and light trade $85 to $90/head. It will be very interest- ing to see market over the next month. With the exporters mainly driving the market it will also be interesting to see the kill figures over the same period as they have dropped over the past fort- night. The high Australian dol- lar would be making life difficult for the exporters and so we are in for some fascinating times! The posi- tive news on the lamb front is that lamb exports to South East Asia and Greater China jum- ped 5 per cent year-on-year in January to 2378 tonnes with strong demand from China (1571 tonnes) driving the in- crease. While Australian mut- ton supplies continue to remain historically tight, shipments to this region in January surged 65 per cent with shipments to China, Malaysia and Taiwan all increasing significantly. Australian lamb export values passed the $1 billion mark for the first time in a calendar year in 2011, fin- ishing the year with a record A$1.1 billion which is 12 per cent higher than in 2010. The United States re- mained by far the most valuable market increas- ing 19 per cent to $350 million or 32 per cent of the total. Values to the Middle East were steady, finishing at $216 million while ex- ports to Greater China were at $117 million, up 24 per cent on 2010. The Stock Report
