TAS Country : March 8th 2012
Friday, March 9, 2012 Tasmanian Country 15 The Stock Report Quality vealers missing THERE was a similar number of 165 trade and export cattle at Killafaddy on Tuesday with more cows, very few bullocks and fewer top quality vealers. Most vealers made 197c to 215c/kg, while most yearlings sold to the trade made 189c to 210c/kg. Res- tockers were prominent and paid 189c to 196c/kg for steers and 184c to 192c/kg for heifers. There were only 20 grown steers and bullocks and the steers made 183c to 188c/kg and the couple of bullocks 178c to 179c/kg, liveweight. There was a larger yard- ing of 62 cows and they met a stronger market with heavy pens making 139c to 165c/kg (average150c/kg), medium weights 132c to 162c/kg and restockers bought the rest for 111c to 132c/kg or $400 to $751/head. There was a small pen- ning of lambs with few heavy pens. The quality was very mixed, with most still in the wool. There was limited competition and the few heavy lambs made $103 to $116, trade $94 to $107 and light trade $91 to $99/head. Restockers showed more interest and paid $80 to $93/head for well bred lambs, preferring shorn pens. Big rains will have hidden bonus market TALK Richard Bailey TIGHT SUPPLY: The floods will impact prices. THE huge rains in North- ern Victoria and New South Wales over the past few weeks and the on- going floods that have fol- lowed will have a big im- pact on livestock prices over the next month. Supply will get pretty tight with stock movement near impossible in many areas. I understand there are no drought-declared areas in the whole of NSW, which I reckon would be a first for a very long time. In Tasmania, rains have been very patchy but in many cases very welcome and will set up a good early break. The immediate impact of the here has been the extra restocker interest in the lamb industry where prices for store lambs have jumped a good $10 a head over the past week. In the case of well-bred shorn lambs the price has improved up to $15 a head. In Victorian saleyards all reports indicate a much stronger store demand for lambs and no doubt this will flow through the cattle sector as well. Vealer and yearling prices were significantly higher at Pakenham on Monday even though there were 2650 yarded (654 more) with vealers 15c to 20c/kg dearer. The best made 220c to 240c/kg (top- ping at 263.6c/kg) and the rest 182c to 230c/kg, liv- eweight. Heavy bullocks also lift- ed 3c to 4c/kg with most making 176c to 200c/kg. Cow prices were also dearer with best quality beef cows making 145c to 160c/kg and medium weights 134c to 154c/kg. At Killafaddy on Tuesday there were 62 cows and the best heavy- weights sold for 139c to 165c/kg (average 150c/kg) with most making $730 to $1088 and averaging $933/head. Medium weights sold for 132c to 162c/kg and averaged 146c/kg, liveweight. It was interesting to note that the average eastern states weekly cattle slaugh- ter rate for February slip- ped 18 per cent year-on- year. Cattle throughput was low in a historical context, with weekly slaughter 10 per cent below the five- year average, as tough trading conditions, accen- tuated by the higher Aust- ralian dollar prompted sev- eral processors to operate below capacity. New South Wales led the way with their cattle slaughter levels 18 per cent below the five-year aver- age for February and 19 per cent lower than 2011. The MLA reports that favourable grazing con- ditions, floods, strong re- stocking demand and lower slaughter cattle prices contributed to the reduced supplies. Queensland's through- put was also 18 per cent lower than 2011 with the floods having a big impact. Numbers in Tasmania were fairly similar to last year with both major works competing for their share. On the other hand, average eastern states weekly lamb slaughter for February increased 19 per cent year-on-year. It is pro- jected that lamb slaughter will increase during 2012 as a result of favourable seasons over recent years. There is a feeling there may be limits as producers decide to keep Merino wether lambs to benefit from higher wool prices, as well as retaining ewe lambs to continue the flock rebuild. 2042424-120302 POWRANNA ANNUAL WEANER SALE - Thursday 15th March 2012 at 12.30pm 2,500 Calves 2,500 Pr perty Steers e ers escr p The Gle 230 120 A gus a d A gus ere rd , (Aug-Sept) Beef Only.
