FEILDING PRIME STOCK SALE MONDAY, DECEMBER 5
The weekly market can only
deal with so many.
It had to happen sooner or later as the
biggest yarding of cull ewes seen for
many months crammed into the sale
pens, resulting in ewe prices giving up
the gains of the last fortnight and drop-
ping up to $20/head again.
The sale yards remain a viable option
for disposing of surplus ewes, however, as
each ewe in a pen makes the same
amount and the condemned rail is anoth-
er s concern.
What is apparent is the weekly market
can only deal with so many and a cull ewe
offering of this size allows those trading
in the market to be a little less aggressive
and still get their numbers without beat-
ing up their fellow traders.
The prime lamb market was just a
little easier in line with schedule changes
but nothing really dramatic and the
smaller lambs in a store condition were
fully firm as buyers seek a margin.
The heaviest lambs offered came from
Adrian Thurston s dairy pastures as he
sold 28 poll dorset cross lambs for $181,
easily the day s top lamb price, and Ray
Moss sold 26 poll dorset cross lambs for
A reasonable proportion of lambs were
not quite finished to prime condition,
which may indicate larger entries of store
lambs before the Christmas break.
A standout line of 155 shorn 2th and
fresh 4th ewes from Keilawarra Ltd were
sold for $180, beating the butchers
knives, as their ewes are dispersed fol-
lowing the sale of the property but, over-
all, ewe sale prices were back to the
levels of a fortnight ago although are still
very competitive with works schedules.
The prime cattle sale was another small
affair, as has become typical over recent
weeks yet the heavier steers and cows
were sold on a firm market with the
heavier cows being of beef herd origin
and selling well.
Some weaner bulls were offered and
they sold around similar levels to the
dairy beef weaner sale of last week.
