They realised to a top of 195c/kg for the lighter end of the market, most selling from 184c/kg to 195c/kg. Trade cattle were also well sought after, regain- ing much of last week's loss. Steer vealers topped at 232c/kg, best heifer calves made 215c/kg. The 37 cows yarded sold to a much greater demand this week with top beef cows selling to 166c/kg, dairy cows to148c/kg while bulls also cleared to 166c/kg. A total of 230 cattle were yarded at the sale. Feature sales: BULLOCKS: DR & MH Mead, 195c/kg-$1163; MA & TA Elphinstone, 195c/kg- $1076; DR & JE White, 194c/kg-$1074.

Steers lead the weaner market market TALK Richard Bailey TOP PRICE: Premaydena took the honours at the first weaner sale for the season with a pen of Angus steers for $930 a head. Picture: KAROLIN MacGREGOR1 LAST week we saw the first of the weaner calf sales at Powranna, with Roberts yarding a total of 3462 calves. The steer calf sale was strong --- although not as high as this sale last year --- with spirited compe- tition from many Tasman- ian finishers and back- grounders. The heaviest steers made $820 to $930, medium weights (280kg to 330kg) $700 to $855, light (200kg to 280kg) $550 to $735 and very small $550 to $600/head. With a few exceptions --- at either end of the weight ranges --- most steers wor- ked out between 240c and 260c/kg, liveweight. The heifer sale was not as strong with the best pens selling for $615 to $770, medium weights $440 to $675 and most small calves sold for $430 to $500/head. Very few, if any, steers went interstate but there were some heifers bought to go across Bass Strait. This is very good news for our processing indus- try as we need to keep as many cattle as possible to make sure that our major works are kept at near full capacity for much of the year as possible. There are a lot of calves to go under the hammer over the next four weeks and it will be fascinating to see how the prices go. The first sales last year were the dearest but this year will be interesting because of the big wet in Victoria and New South Wales. Overseas, the United States cow beef market continued to rise into un- chartered territory last week. Prices for both im- ported and domestic lean processing beef increased. Following the 71 per cent surge in Australian beef shipments to the US last month to 23,339 tonnes, exports of our beef to that market during the first week of March have al- ready reached 5891 tonnes. This can be seen in Tasmanian cow prices. Although not big num- bers in the saleyards, heavy cows at Quoiba sold from 145c to 166c/kg. At Pakenham on Tuesday we saw heavy beef cows sell- ing from 154c to 159c/kg while lighter plain dairy cows gained 4c/kg and sold from 120c to 126c/kg and better covered 2 score dairy cows fetched 128c to 146c/kg, liveweight. It's a good time for pro- ducers to have strong cow prices as they wean their calves and cull old or empty cows. It should also mean that with these good cow prices producers will be able to push into the better bulls during the run of bull sales that have already started. Locally, bullock prices also spiked during the week and at Killafaddy steers (500kg to 600kg) sold for 195c to 196c/kg and heavy bullocks (700kg to 750 kg) went for 190c to 198c/kg. At Quoiba there were 48 bullocks and most made 184c to 195c/kg, liveweight which for the heavy end is the best return for pro- ducers for a long time.
