YARD TALK With Charlie Croker  October 2017

Cattle

Sad to say but the cattle market is really feeling the pinch, serious lack of rain in most areas of the state being the main issue. In the month since my last report the market has dropped up to 40c per kg across the board.

Yass Selex 28/09/17

Grown steers to 248c per kg

The best of the Heavy cows made up to 208c per kg

Medium weight Feeder steers made up to 270c per kg

Light Restocker steers reached 280c per kg

Heifers are feeling it the most with the best of the young heifers making 240c per kg

Good rain is forecast for mid-October so fingers crossed we get some much need relief.

Sheep/ lambs

The lamb market is still going along strong with new season lambs (NSL) still making the $6.00 per kg and better. Strong demand for the fresh trade article is keeping the job firing. There is also a demand for store lambs and good restocker lambs.

The mutton market has come back of late but mainly in the lighter end of the job

Yass sheep and lamb 19/07/17.

Heavy weight cross bred ewes made up to $109

The best of the Merino wethers made up to $112

Store lambs sold from $72 to $116

Trade lambs in Yass last week sold from $114 to $145

The best heavy weight lambs sold for $177

Sucker season is upon us and has started with a bang, buyers want the lambs fresh and sappy. If you would like some friendly advice as to the progress of your suckers when the time comes please don’t hesitate to call me J
