TAS Country : April 12th 2012
Friday, April 13, 2012 Tasmanian Country 13 The Stock Report Top of $113 for lambs A LIGHT yarding of all stock was the order of the day at Bridgewater on Tuesday. There was a penning of 57 cattle, 575 sheep and lambs and only two calves at the sale, held a day later than usual because of Eas- ter.The yarding of 472 lambs consisted of more light and wool types. Top price was $113, most heavies saw $95 to $108, medium lambs went for $80 to $90 and light types $40 to $70. There was only 110 mut- ton penned. Best wethers fetached $70, best ewes $61, most sheep $45 to $50, and light $20 to $30. Although the cattle yard- ing was light there was a good mix of weights and classes. Ten bulls sold from 90c/kg to 139c/kg. Jap ox sold from 166c/kg to 185c/kg, heavy steers to 195c/kg and vealers to 206c/kg. Week-old Friesian heifer calves sold for $190.

Philip Brazendale Lamb kill high but how long will it last?market TALK Richard Bailey ANOTHER short week which means no markets on Monday and obviously no work at the abattoirs. With no Quoiba lamb sale, the focus went to Bridgewater and Killafaddy and of over the water to both Ballarat and Hamilton. At Bridgewater there were 470 lambs penned with more lightweights and wool lambs included. Most heavies made $95 to $113 while medium weights made $80 to $90/head. At Killafaddy there were just under 1000 lambs penned with around half being bought as stores. Extra heavy lambs made $120 to $128, heavy $107 to $116 and trade $101 to $106/head. Restockers paid $80 to $99 for the best shorn lambs in the 15kg to 17kg range and $64 to $70 for the smaller lambs. For the first time in several months there was no export competition on these light lambs. At Ballarat on Tuesday there were 20,500 lambs penned and trade lambs met a better market making $91 to $127 or 470c to 480c/kg; heavy lambs made $117 to $128 or 470c/kg and extra heavy $121 to $140 or 400c to 440c/kg dressed weight. At Hamilton on Wednesday there were 18,000 lambs and all met a cheaper market. Trade lambs made $85 to $116 and ranged from 390c to 465c/kg while heavy lambs made $112 to $132 or 405c to 445c/kg. Locally it was interesting to note that even with a four-day killing week there were 9454 lambs slaughtered in Tasman- ian works last week compared with 10,191 the week before. It is also interesting to note that in the financial year to last Friday there have been 326,424 lambs killed in Tasmania compared with 236,989 for the previous period. That is an increase of 89,435 lambs which is quite significant and although I haven't got the live shipment number to Victorian meat companies I think that the numbers of trade and heavy lambs going to Victoria would be up on last year. The feeling among lamb buyers is that they think they have good numbers in front of them. It will be interesting to see if the kill numbers stay at current levels where supply will be coming into winter. The lower Australia dollar must be a help to exporters and from an industry point of view it would be good if the level would stabilise.
