Vealers, yearlings remain steady Killafaddy THERE was another small total yarding of 80 trade and export cattle at Kil- lafaddy on Tuesday, with very few bullocks and cows included. The market for trade vealers and yearlings was similar to last week with most vealers making 165c to 178c/kg. Restockers bought most of the yearling steers for 156c to 182c/kg or $562 to $819/head. Most yearling heifers sold to the trade for 150c to 171c/kg while restockers paid 155c to 172c/kg or $519 to $782/head. There were not enough bullocks to quote and only 10 cows, with the best making 116c to 118c/kg liveweight. There was another small yarding of just under 700 prime lambs with fewer heavy pens. Prices for heavy trade and heavy lambs were $8 to $10/head cheaper while light lambs met a stronger market on the back of smaller numbers. Extra heavy lambs made $95 to $105, heavy $87 to $95 and trade $73 to $86/head. Light trade lambs sold for $70 to $74 and light export types made $56 to $60/head. There was a slightly bet- ter yarding of mutton and although there were two exporters active prices struggled to hold last week's rates. Trade sheep made $31 to $38 (restockers paid $36 to $41) and heavy ewes made $24 to $39/head depending on skin value. Lamb prices fall $10 Bridgewater PHILIP BRAZENDALE LAMB prices eased $5 to $10 a head at Bridgewater on Monday as the numbers start to flow and the sum- mer becomes stronger. There was a yarding of 121 cattle and 1965 sheep and lambs at the market. Hoggetts were easier and mutton stayed at simi- lar rates, especially for Merino sheep with 1.5 to 2-inch skins. Cattle prices firmed up to 10c/kg liveweight for all classes. The quality of all stock was very good to excellent. Thirteen bulls sold from 90c/kg to 125c/kg, most 118c/kg, Jap ox sold to 166c/kg for 690kg to 184c/kg for 585kg, most 178c/kg. Trade cattle sold from 164c/kg to 180c/kg, most 178c/kg and heavy heifers 159c to 173c/kg. Cows sold from 112c/kg to 125c/kg.

Grass finish gives a winning quality ROGER HANSON THE quality of grass- finished beef came to the fore at the Circular Head Agricultural Society's Trade and Export cattle competition judged at Smithton meat processor Greenham earlier this month. The 30th annual hoof and hook competition at- tracted a yarding of 61 entries, with a quality field of 29 yearlings and 28 heavy Japanese export steers, but only four en- tries in the led steer class, with $5000 in prize money up for grabs. Hoof judge and Land- mark state manager Craig Barbary explained his selections to onlookers during last month's hoof section judging at Stanley. The 30-day gap between hoof and hook judging made the hoof job challeng- ing for Mr Barbary, but the winners reflected the car- case quality a month later. At the Greenham Tas- mania facility, Meat Stan- dards Australia assessors Wayne Bradfield, Glynis Heald and Mick Young measured the carcasses to establish the best per- formers on the hook. First and second place in Class One went to Wayne and Rosemary Wells, of Banna Holdings at Mawbanna, and third to Milton and Gaylene De Jonge. In Class Two, John and Angela Bruce from West- ern Plains at Stanley took the prize, with Leon and Diana Gee second, and D. and V. Pointon taking third. In Class Three the top and third spots went to Daryl Heazlewood from Platinum Angus, with Pine Park second. Guests at the presen- tations included inter- national beef identities John Wood from Missouri, in the US, a founding mem- ber of US Wellness Meats and Hamado Bance from New York, a purveyor of produce for New York res- taurants. Greenham managing director Peter Greenham congratulated producers on their ability to select quality carcasses. He said that grass- finished beef was growing in demand. Last month, Rex Frankcombe won both classes of the hoof section, as well as show champion and the Cyril Wells Mem- orial Trophy. In Class One Young's Vegie Shed from Marr- awah was second with Banna Holdings third. Platinum Angus was first in the led steer class.
