It wasn't a big sale in Kaikohe last week, with a shorter week sue to the Labour Day holiday, Vaughan Vujcich of PGG Wrightson reported, but the market stayed firm with prices much on par with previous weeks.
A light yarding of 2-year steers - whiteface, exotic-cross and Angus - made $2.20-$2.30/kgLW, while heavier yearling steers - Friesian, Angus-cross and exotic-cross - sold at $2.40-$2.50/kgLW with lighter lines fetching $2.70-$2.80/kgLW.
Friesian yearling bulls reached $2.65-$2.70/kgLW, and early weaner spring bulls - Friesian, whiteface, Angus-cross - made $410-$450.
Heavier 2-year Friesian heifers made $2/kgLW, while beef-crosses were $2.15-$2.20/kgLW.
Yearling heifers sold well, Vujcich commented, heavier lines of Simmental-cross, whiteface and Devon/Friesian making $2.40-$2.50/kgLW and lighter lines $2.65-$2.70/kgLW.
Whiteface heifer calves, 100kg, fetched $350-$380.
Cows, empty and RWB, reached $1.60-$1.70 for heavier lines and $1.45-$1.50 for mediums.
No report was available from PUKEKOHE or KUMEU last week.
The store cattle market was a "whisker stronger" at TUAKAU last Thursday, PGG Wrightson agent Robin Eyre said.
He felt the lift was due to the "arrival of some consistent grass growth" in the region.
The yarding of 609-head included 2-year whiteface steers at 409kg which made $2.42/kgLW, or $990. Other 2-year steers in the 350-390kg range returned $2.44-$2.52/kgLW and lighter 2-year and 18-month steers, 286-340kg, earned $2.71-$2.90/kgLW.
Yearling steers, 298-308kg, traded at $2.61-$2.90/kgLW, with autumn-born Angus weaner steers at 232kg making $700 and a second cut at 191kg, $675. A nice pen of 100kg whiteface weaner steers fetched $515.
Friesian bulls at 400kg made $2.33/kgLW, with bulls at 226kg making $2.76/kgLW. Weaner whiteface bulls, 123kg, sold at $480.
In the heifer section, 2-year heifers at 405-412kg returned $2.28-$2.30/kgLW and yearling heifers, 270-320kg, $2.34-$2.60/kgLW.
Lighter heifers, 180-255kg, earned $2.56-$3.10/kgLW, with autumn-born whiteface weaner heifers at 168kg making $540 and 142kg heifers, $545. Some 215kg Angus heifers sold at $605 and a second cut fetched $560. Limousin-cross heifers at 162kg returned $542.
The short working week meant last Wednesday's prime cattle sale drew only a light yarding of 250 cattle, PGG Wrightson agent Roy Allen said, "But the market was strong".
Heavy prime steers, 680-740kg, traded at $2.36-$2.38/kgLW and 600-635kg steers made $2.33-$2.37/kgLW. A feature of the auction was a line of Belted Galloway steers, 657kg, which made $2.39/kgLW. A sole Angus-cross steer at 710kg made $2.40/kgLW.
Heavy prime heifers, 535-553kg, mostly whiteface, sold at $2.28-$2.31/kgLW, with Angus-cross heifers, 426-460kg, making $2.27-$2.29/kgLW and a single Limousin-cross heifer, 680kg, $2.44/kgLW.
A young Hereford cow, 530kg, made $1.88/kgLW and heavy empty Friesian cows earned $1.70-$1.79/kgLW. Other good Friesian cows fetched $1.45-$1.56/kgLW.
Heavy Hereford bulls, 655-785kg, returned $2.50-$2.60/kgLW and Jersey bulls, 495-535kg, $2.29-$2.36/kgLW.
Numbers at last Monday's sheep sale were also affected by the short week, Allen said.
Heavy ram lambs sold at $127.50, with a second cut making $102-$110. Lambs "with their teeth up" returned $97-$108 and the best of the ewes fetched $84-$92. The first of the new season store lambs were expected at Tuakau this week.
BAY OF PLENTY
Following the long weekend, numbers may have been a little lighter at RANGIURU, but the centre is still producing some very sound returns, Stu Langdon of PGG Wrightson commenting that the market is still strong.
The bigger steers returned $2.27-$2.36/kgLW, a 703kg line selling at $1660, $2.36/kgLW, and another lot at 610kg bringing $1385, $2.27/kgLW. $950-$1110 took steers weighing over 400kg, $2.11-$2.35/kgLW, and useful yearling steers made $625-$760, $2.14-$2.57/kgLW.
The better older heifers made $895-$1105, $2.22-$2.46/kgLW, while a 317kg line fetched $730, $2.06/kgLW. The heavier yearling heifers traded at $525-$675, quality dictating the CPK rates at $2.14-$2.57/kgLW and those weighing 150-250kg returned $410-$600, $2.40-$2.62/kgLW.
250kg yearling bulls made $625, $2.50/kgLW.
Prime ox sold at similar rates to similar store steers, $2.22-$2.37/kgLW, selling for $1100-$1450 and a single 683kg prime bull went at $1760, $2.58/kgLW.
$1120-$1150 bought the best of the boner cows, $1.78-$1.90/kgLW, lower yielding sorts trading at $550-$765, $1.34-$1.86/kgLW.
Prime lambs reached a new high of $136 and averaged $104. The few ewes offered made $64-$90, while some ewes with lambs at foot made $45-$70 all-counted.
The prime sale at FRANKTON saw prime ox selling at steady rates for the lots weighing over 600kg. All were bought at $1406-$1642, $2.25-$2.34/kgLW, but CPK rates eased for any below 600kg which made $1263-$1298, $2.10-$2.20/kgLW.
Prime heifers over 500kg sold at $1226-$1322, $2.25-$2.26/kgLW, while those weighing 400kg and better made $895-$1124, $2.20-$2.28/kgLW.
Boner cows traded at $1.25-$1.61/kgLW, with the best making $911-$917 and any weighing less than 500kg making $540-$743, $1.35-$1.43/kgLW. A couple of lines of prime cows fetched $822 and $975, $1.63-$1.75/kgLW.
Best prime lambs reached $127 from $115 and butcher ewes were $73-$90 with store lambs selling at $83-$97.
At Wednesday's store sale, the crowd was relatively small, as with the first fine day for some time, many farmers elected to dock some lambs.
In spite of that, the better cattle sold well Lynn Collins of PGG Wrightson commented, the region having more than enough grass.
A decent yarding of yearling heifers proved attractive to buyers, the entry of predominantly Hereford/Friesian selling strongly.
$700-$800 was needed to secure the better of these sorts, $2.49-$2.77/kgLW, while a tidy line of 355kg Angus cross made $805, $2.27/kgLW. The bulk of the total changed hands over $700. $605-$670 bought good mediums and there were sales at $558-$578.
The better yearling steers saw sales of $820-$880 for good Hereford/Friesian, $2.38-$2.54/kgLW, all weighing over 300kg. Steers just under 300kg fetched $705-$755, $2.59-$2.79/kgLW, and there were one or two sales at $540-$550. Most R2 steers exceeded $1000, selling at $110-$1275, $2.13-$2.33/kgLW, $930-$988 buying smaller sorts, $2.26-$2.33/kgLW.
Top price for yearling bulls, $950 was paid for 396kg Hereford/Friesian, $2.40/kgLW. Solid Friesian bulls over 200kg fetched $728-$752, $2.55-$2.73/kgLW, while lighter Jerseys returned $450, $1.97/kgLW. Two-year Friesian bulls made $850-$1018, $2.25-$2.32/kgLW.
It was a buoyant prime and boner cow market again at STRATFORD last week, Sandra Engelen of NZ Farmers Livestock commented.

The first spring lambs appeared at Matawhero last week and aroused some speculation as to their value. There were only a total of 48 head in three lines and all were mixed-sex. 23 sold at $66, 11 made $60 and 14 smaller, $46. This would have been around $2.37-$2.55/kgLW.
A reasonable number of primes were offered with trade ewes fully firm at $80-$90 while lambs traded at $97-$119. The emergence of two teeth in hoggets means a drop in value of $25/30 per head, with traders very wary.
Over 270 store ewes sold to full value, $65-$77 for useful and $49-$60 for plain. Several lots, which were mixed-age robust ewes, were taken up by speculators at prime values of $89-$90. Five small lines of ewes and lambs made $56.50-$66 all-counted.
The total yarding was 498 head.
Cattle dominated the figures at STORTFORD LODGE as parts of Hawke's Bay experienced strong winds and low rainfall, 875 head coming off the trucks. It was still a very satisfactory sale, Ian MacEwan of Elders reported, with buyers turning up from western districts and even from the Far North.
Yearlings made up a very large percentage of the total entry with over 700 head penned. Steers and bulls may have lost a little ground but young heifers were in demand from locals in the wetter areas.
One nice line of Angus-cross steers did make $1052, $2.44/kgLW with other similar types making $875-$985, more mediums trading at $722-$810, $2.84-$2.94/kgLW. The best of the whiteface yearling steers brought $795-$852, $2.35-$2.67/kgLW and some solid Simmentals made $920, $2.64/kgLW. Small sorts went at $495-$562, $2.19-$2.36/kgLW.
A buyer from the Far North had a feast, taking many line of yearling bulls, any bulls weighing less than 200kg selling at discounted rates. Friesian bulls at 377kg topped the sale with $825, $2.10/kgLW, and 296kg Angus made $800, $2.70/kgLW. One or two lots sold at $642-$732, $2.32-$2.68/kgLW, but many lines fetched $420-$550, $2.23-$3.38/kgLW.
Angus and Angus-cross yearling heifers made up much of the entry in that class. $715-$788 bought the best of these, $2.53-$2.78/kgLW, with other decent lots selling at $590-$685, $2.69-$2.77/kgLW while $390-$440 was paid for heifers under 200kg.
Only 24 R2 steers were penned. 447kg sold at $1090, $2.44/kgLW and two lighter lots made $610 and $790, $1.85/kgLW and $1.96/kgLW respectively. A lone lot of Hereford/Friesian weaner steers brought $550, $2.82/kgLW, and seven similarly bred R2 bulls went at $760, $1.99/kgLW.
Two lines of mixed age cows made $810 and $970 while cows with calves brought $844.
It was a very small yarding of sheep, as was the turnout of buyers. Around 900 hoggets and 500 ewes with lambs at foot made up the total. The ewes with lambs at foot were mixed, making $60-$67.50 for the better lots and $47-$58 for others.
Hoggets sold well enough, buyers showing caution regarding teeth emergence. $100-$115 took the heavier lots but $70-$81.50 was all that was need for others. Ewe hoggets looked a safer buy, selling at $100-$123.
At RONGOTEA last Wednesday, 2-year steers, 400-450kg, fetched $850-$920, Malcolm Coombe of NZ Farmers reported, while 2-year crossbred steers made $500-$700.
Two-year heifers, 450-480kg, traded at $870-$1000, $2.05-$2.10/kgLW, others ranging from $600-$700.
Yearling steers met at the $550-$620 mark, while yearling heifers made $650-$715, $2.30-$2.45/kgLW.
A few spring-born Friesian bulls are starting to appear, making between $400 and $450.
There were a handful of dairies close-to-profit this week selling at $700-$800.
A handful of beef cows sold up to $985, $1.65/kgLW.
Boner cows this week made $750-$840, $1.40-$1.50/kgLW, with other cows fetching $500-$650.
Medium mixed-sex lambs $85-$90.
Rongotea saw 200 calves this week still making good money. The better of the Friesian bulls sold for $130-$150, while mediums made $90-$100.
Top whiteface bulls made $190-$205, with a lot around the $150-$180 mark. Angus-cross bulls were making $150-$200 for the better sorts, medium $120-$140 and small $90-$110.
Top white face heifers realised $140-$160, medium $105-$130, and small $90-$100. Angus-cross heifers made $130-$150, with mediums $100-$120.
It was a very sound sale for the store cattle at FEILDING last Friday, Darrin Holm of Elders reported, despite a big yarding.
R2 steers fetched $2.25-$2.40/kgLW, while heavy yearling steers traded at $2.35-$2.40/kgLW, lighter yearlings $2.60-$2.80/kgLW, and even lighter steers of around 200kg, $3/kgLW.
R2 heifers made around the $2.20-$2.30/kgLW mark, and yearling heifers sold particularly well for $2.50-$2.60/kgLW.
There were quite a lot of R2 bulls on offer, Holm commented, selling for $2.25-$2.40/kgLW. Heavy yearling bulls sold for $2.34-$2.40/kgLW, and lighter sorts $2.40-$2.50/kgLW.
Again it was a fairly small yarding of sheep on Friday, with a few pens of new season lambs on offer, Chris Hansen of Elders reported.
There were three pens of new season lambs, fetching between $61 and $73/head.
Male hoggets that were mouthed sold well, with top hoggets making $118-$131, and good $100-$118. Very good ewe hoggets fetched $101-$113, and medium $90-$100.
An outstanding pen of ewes with lambs at foot made $82, with majority selling in the $60-$65 range. Lesser sorts made $52-$58.
Mixed-age ewes made $80-$95.50.
A small yarding of store lambs at CANTERBURY PARK last week saw prices remain on par with previous weeks.
The best store lambs ranged from $90-$95, with the odd sale to $103, medium $80-$90, and light $70-$75.
Heavy prime lambs fetched $120-$128, good medium lambs $112-$118, and lighter lambs $105-$110.
A medium yarding of prime ewes was met with firm demand, heavy ewes trading at $105-$120, medium ewes $85-$95, and lighter ewes $65-$75.
Prime steers, 477-535kg fetched $1.98-$2.18/kgLW, 560-585kg, $2.02-$2.27/kgLW, and 600-725kg, $1.87-$2.26/kgLW.
Prime heifers, 430-470kg made $2.07-$2.10/kgLW, and 525-540kg, $2.16-$2.20/kgLW.
In the store cattle, R2 Hereford-cross steers made $915, and Angus-cross yearling heifers sold for $450, $530 and $670 for each line on offer.
It was a windy old morning at Thursday's COALGATE sale, Glen Peddie of Peter Walsh & Associates said, which made handling the paperwork a challenge. The markets overall were similar to last week.
There was a good offering of prime hoggets with the market firm on last week. Heavy prime lambs made up to $128, mediums $105 to $118 and lighter lambs made up to $95.
Better prime ewes were met with firm demand ranging between $100 and $115. Mediums $80-$90 and lighter ewes made up to $65.
There was a very small yarding of store hoggets with the best making up to $86. Lighter to medium lambs were also offered making around $40-$60.
Numerous lines of hoggets with lambs at foot were also offered making between $50 and $68 all counted.
More was paid for lambs with a bit of age to them.
In the cattle department, prime steers were on par with last week making up to $2.21/kgLW, however prime heifers were back making up to $1.80/kgLW.
Prime cows made between $1.30 and $1.50/kgLW and lighter prime bulls up to $1.91/kgLW.
There was a small yet mixed yarding of store cattle with values easing slightly on last week.
A good yarding of prime ewes in both quantity and quality saw values lift by $5/head on the previous sale at TINWALD while a small offering of prime hoggets held firm, PGG Wrightson livestock manager Greg Cook reported.
Heavy prime hoggets earned $112-$120, medium $105-$110 and light $98-$104.
Heavy prime ewes earned $105-$115, medium $90-$104 and lighter sorts $60-$89.
Store cattle took another dive at TEMUKA for the third consecutive sale with values dropping a further 5-10c/kg due to the cold wet conditions and slow grass growth.
The bulk of the 1000 cattle sold were yearling steers and heifers. Both the prime cattle and sheep sales generally held their values of previous week, PGG Wrightson livestock manager Joe Higgins reported.
Prime steers 600-850kg earned $2.10-$2.17/kgLW, 450-600kg $2.05-$2.23/kgLW, 400-500kg $1.90-$2.17 and dairy types, 500-620kg, $1.85-$2.09/kgLW.
Prime heifers 500-680kg returned $1.90-$2.10/kgLW, 400-500kg $1.85-$2.14/kgLW, and dairy sorts 380-580kg earned $1.35-$2.05/kgLW.
800-1000kg prime bulls fetched $1.35-$1.54/kgLW, 550-800kg $1.82-$2.20/kgLW and 400-500kg $1.85-$1.92/kgLW.
Heavy beef cows 500-800kg realised $1.42-$1.57/kgLW. Dairy types 500-750kg $1.28-$1.54/kgLW with poorer types 340-500kg earning 75c-$1.30/kgLW.
A very small yarding of store lambs saw forward types fetching $90-$105, medium $80-$89 and smaller lambs $60-$75.
A large yarding of prime hoggets saw heavy types fetching $120-$127, medium $114-$119 and light $105-$113.

A medium sized yarding of prime hoggets met with limited demand at BALCLUTHA last Wednesday, Barry Osborne of PGG Wrightson reported. Heavy hoggets were difficult to sell, fetching $95-$100, while mediums sold at $102-$119, and light $88-$98.
