TAS Country : June 14th 2012
Friday, June 15, 2012 Tasmanian Country 19 The Stock Report $24,000 for Nova Royalty ROGER HANSON SALE SUCCESS: Breeders Paul Page and Cam Clements, of West Ridgley, with new owner Paul Rodgers and Paul Manwarring. Picture: WAYNE JENKINS TASMANIAN Poll Here- ford breeder Cam Clem- ents relished the price for one of his bulls sold at the 51st annual Dubbo Natio- nal Poll Hereford show and sale. The bull, Nova Royalty, sold for $24,000. He was one of eight bulls which sold for more than $20,000. It is the highest price achieved for a bull bred at Clements' Nova Poll Here- ford Stud, at West Ridgley. ''I am rapt, am over the moon with the price,'' Mr Clements said. ''The price has exceeded all my expectations. ''I believe it is the highest price for a Tasman- ian bull of any breed sold this year.'' Mr Clements started exhibiting at the national show and sale only two years ago. The bull was snapped up by one of Australia's top breeders, Paul Rogers, from Centennial Here- fords, in Coolah, NSW. ''It's great one of our bulls has gone to a top stud,'' Mr Clements said. Last year, at Wodonga, he sold a bull for $9000 and, at Dubbo, one for $10,000. On his 40ha stud, Mr Clements has 60-plus cat- tle, including young bulls. He calves between 20 and 25 a year. Mr Clements' interest in Herefords started when he was only about 10 years hold. He used to visit Ian Walker, who was then the stud groom at the well- known Valmont Stud. He said his involvement with the stud continued when it was taken on by Keith and Anne McLauch- lan, and became the Val- ma Stud. Mr Clements' foun- dation cow herd was based on Valma genetics, and he said the McLauchlan fam- ily had been supportive over the years. ''They've been very good tomeandgivenmealotof help and advice over the years,'' he said. Experienced agents at Dubbo said it was one of the best sales of any breed so far this year. An eager gallery of buyers paid the average $9034 for 117 Poll Here- fords. The average was 25 per cent on last year's sales and the clearance was up 9 per cent. Topping the sale at $80,000 was the senior and grand champion bull, Tycolah Jovial F77, offered by Steve and Theresa Crowley, of Barraba, NSW. Jovial was grand cham- pion bull at the past two Sydney royals and won the Urquhart Trophy for the best beef animal at Sydney 2012. The buyer was a syndicate of the Gunyah, Viewfields and Kimpton Park Herefords. Second top was $40,000 for Braybrook Federer F448, of Warroo, NSW. Third top was $31,000 for Yalgoo Zed from NSW. Last year's top price of $46,000 was for Valma Prestige E60, a 21-month- old Poll Hereford bull offered by Keith and Andrew McLauchlan, of Whitemore. Lamb kill rate on a high in Tassie market TALK Richard Bailey AUSTRALIAN lamb pro- duction was markedly higher during the first four months of this year, jump- ing 13 per cent year-on- year, to 139,268 tonnes cwt, despite a sharp contraction in Western Australia. However, it should be noted that overall pro- duction throughout early 2011 was historically low, constrained by flooding and flock rebuilding. The lift so far in 2012 has been driven by the two largest production states, Victoria (up 20 per cent, to 57,281 tonnes cwt) and New South Wales (up 22 per cent, to 34,860 tonnes cwt) and supported by the other eastern states. South Aust- ralia was up 7 per cent (30,028 tonnes cwt), Tas- mania rose 23 per cent (2805 tonnes cwt) while Queensland was up 170 per cent (1765 tonnes cwt). In contrast, Western Australian production was down 22 per cent on last year, at 12,529 tonnes cwt, as the very low sheep flock and rebuilding intention impacted turnoff early in the year. While the change in lamb production for the first four months of this year generally tracked fairly closely with slaugh- ter rates, NSW and Queensland stood out from the other states, processing lambs at significantly heavier weights than the previous year. Additionally, the in- crease in production in Victoria and SA was due to the drier conditions throughout summer and autumn, especially for key growing areas in western Victoria and south-east South Australia. For the early part of this year, prices were consist- ently higher in the west than the east, a result of relatively tight supply and a good spring and summer. However, with the de- terioration in pasture and lamb condition, Western Australian prices have de- clined in recent weeks, with many regions await- ing further season-defining rains. Locally, we are killing big numbers of lambs and last week the slaughter numbers jumped to 12,727, which is the highest lamb kill in a week since the National Livestock Report- ing System started collect- ing data. As a comparison, in re- cent weeks the kill number has been sitting between 9500 and 10,500. Compared to the same period last financial year the total slaughter is up 112,192 lambs which is a big jump.
