Prices remained very positive for a very small sale at WELLSFORD last Monday, Grant Pallister of PGG Wrightson reported.
Two-year steers 400-450kg $2.05-$2.31/kgLW, 350-390kg $2.30-$2.32/kgLW. Two-year heifers 360-410kg $2.27-$2.34/kgLW. One-year steers 235-280kg $2.78-$2.85/kgLW, 180-200kg $2.82-$3.28/kgLW. One-year heifer 210-290kg $2.34-$2.67/kgLW, 190-200kg $2.68-$2.84/kgLW.
The market remained strong on a very small yarding of prime cattle last Tuesday.

With numbers falling away due to the end of season, the sheep market remained steady.
Heavy prime lambs $119-$121, medium $105-$109. Good store lambs $86-$95. Heavy ewes $82-$85 medium $55-$70.
The market softened a little at KAIKOHE last Wednesday, Vaughan Vujcich of PGG Wrightson reported, possibly because it was slightly "overcooked" in previous weeks.
The best of the 2-year steers, Simmental-cross, Hereford and Angus, made $2.20-$2.22/kgLW, and the better yearling steers, a mix of Hereford, Angus, Charolais and beef-cross, fetched $2.70-$2.90/kgLW.
A line of yearling Jersey bulls sold at $700, $2/kgLW. Autumn-born Friesian weaner bulls, 100-110kg, reached $450-$480.
Two-year heifers, a mix of Angus-cross, Hereford-cross, Murray Gray-cross and Friesian, sold for $2.15-$2.20/kgLW. Weaner beef-cross heifers made $2.25-$2.50/kgLW.
Boner cows remained consistent, heavy cows making $1.70-$1.80/kgLW, medium $1.55-$1.65/kgLW and light $1.40-$1.50/kgLW.
With spring "just around the corner", store cattle numbers are starting to rise at TUAKAU, Elders agent Craig Chamberlain said.
Last Thursday's store sale drew a yarding of 600 head. Most classes held value on previous weeks, but yearling heifers eased slightly, he said, "mostly due to the larger number on offer".
Good R3 whiteface steers at 559-650kg traded at $2.23-$2.27/kgLW, or $1255-$1450, with 450-550kg steers making $2.24-$2.37/kgLW. Two-year beef steers, mostly Angus-cross in the 380-460kg weight range, made $2.32-$2.46/kgLW.
Yearling whiteface steers at 300kg-plus earned $2.65-$2.87/kgLW and 200-300kg types returned $2.94-$3.24/kgLW, or $720-$855. Autumn-born weaner steers fetched $645-$690.
Chamberlain said the highlight of the heifer offering was the sale of a line of very good exotic heifers in forward order. Averaging 446kg, the 2-year heifers sold at $2.37/kgLW, or $1060. Whiteface 2-year heifers, 300-380kg, earned $2.15-$2.27/kgLW. Yearling heifers, mostly whiteface, 280-320kg, traded at $2.30-$2.63/kgLW, with 200-280kg types making $2.70-$3.18/kgLW. Autumn-born weaner heifers returned $515-$620.
Last Wednesday's prime sale drew a small yarding of 227 cattle and the market remained at a similar level to previous weeks.
Heavy steers, 650kg-plus, sold at $2.27-$2.31/kgLW, with 550-650kg steers making $2.24-$2.30/kgLW and lighter and trade-type steers, $2.22-$2.25/kgLW. Heifers were light in numbers, making $2.08-$2.24/kgLW.
Heavy boners earned $1.63-$1.75/kgLW and mediums, $1.50-$1.61/kgLW. Lighter cows fetched $1.44-$1.49/kgLW.
Heavy prime lambs are still being discounted at the Monday sheep sale, but Chamberlain said good lambs under 23kg carcaseweight sold up to $122. Medium lambs made $105-$115. Heavy prime ewes earned $60-$80 and mediums $50-$60.
The market was very patchy on at PUKEKOHE on Saturday 1 September, Chris Humphrey of Livestock Mart Auctions reported, with better quality cattle selling extra well, prime Charolais-cross heifers making up to $1700 and a line of good store cattle up to $1112. However, there was an abundance of lesser cattle on offer, and some of these struggled more than their owners would have liked. Once again the importance of farming better quality stock is being reinforced, which is a good thing in the long term for all concerned.
Best 2-year steers $1060-$1340, lighter crossbred steers $840-$900 , medium weaner steers $380-$500, very small steers $265 .
Very good heifers $1700, other lighter heifers $900-$920, small crossbred yearling heifers $450-$570, medium weaner heifers $410-$450, very small crossbred heifers $245, boner cows $590-$1090.
Thanks to a convenient hiatus in the inclement weather, the cattle sale at KUMEU last Monday progressed very nicely indeed, Humphrey commented. The best 2-year store steers sold to $1100 and very small steers sold well to $545. This recent rain will really kick start spring grass growth, and prices for store stock should firm nicely in coming weeks.
Good 2-year whiteface steers $1040-$1100, medium brindle 1-year steers $628, small R1 steers $450-$545, medium steers/bulls $385-$450, small R1 heifers $460-$502.
At FRANKTON's prime sale last week, ox numbers were light but the demand was strong, with heifers attracting very good money while prime and boner cows produced sound results, the report from NZ Farmers Livestock shows.
A pen of 840kg ox blew the roof off at $1911, $2.27/kgLW and another 815kg lot made $1793, $2.20/kgLW. $1561-$1587 bought ox around 700kg, $2.19-$2.21/kgLW and $1149 was the lowest figure.
The entire heifer offering made $1065-$1243, $2.26-$2.30/kgLW, with even those weighing less than 500kg selling at $1065-$1119. Few prime cows were penned, the heavier, at 760 kg making $1436, $1.89/kgLW. A 605kg lot brought $1306, $2.16/kgLW and under 500kg sorts made $921-$983, $1.90-$2.07/kgLW. 643 kg boner cows went at $1072, $1.67/kgLW, the 500kg-plus range making $798-$846, $1.55-$1.56/kgLW and any cow less than 400kg was $398-$547, $1.19-$1.44/kgLW.
The sheep market remained strong, prime lambs selling at $108-$125 and store lambs $80-$106. Ewes were $80-$97 for gradable and $68 for store.
After a big sale the previous week numbers of store cattle returned to near-normal for this time of year, Mark Gausted of PGG Wrightson reported. As elsewhere, yearlings are selling especially well, young heifers are quite well represented and R2 heifers with condition are sought after. In that class $1010 was paid twice for 430-440kg lines, $2.25-$2.30/kgLW. $805-$968 was offered for other solid heifers, $2.19-$2.31/kgLW.
With R2 steers hard to find, that class left many would-be purchasers empty-handed. A star line of 638kg Angus made $1430, $2.24/kgLW and a couple of lines over 500kg sold at $1080 and $1370, $2.11-$2.33/kgLW. Lighter lines were $930-$950, $2.32-$2.34/kgLW.
Yearling steer prices could be covered by a blanket of $675-$745 for the heavier lots, $2.52-$2.79/kgLW. $542-$585 took useful steers around 230kg. Yearling bulls traded just under $3/kgLW, many lots making $735-$785, $2.58-$2.92/kgLW. $865-$890 was paid for lots over 300kg, $2.63-$2.89/kgLW and $590-$665 bought the smaller ones. Weaner bulls enjoyed a notable sale with several cracking $4/kgLW. 100 and 106kg Hereford-Friesian bulls made $4.10 and $4.56/kgLW, $410-$470, and a 107kg lot of Friesians sold at $470, $4.39/kgLW.
Top price for yearling heifers was $800, a 303kg pen of whiteface achieving that money, $2.66/kgLW. Other solid heifers, close to or over 300kg, made $618-$680, $2.59-$2.85/kgLW, $460-$535 buying smaller. A small yarding of weaner heifers changed hands at $305-$472, $3.06-$4.10/kgLW.
BAY OF PLENTY
The region is "buzzing" commented Rod Kamphorst of PGG Wrightson. "Pastures are drying and grass is bolting, and so is the cattle market!" he said. Last week's sale at RANGIURU, in common with others in the North Island, saw yearlings make great money as buyers sought mouths while trying to contain capital outlay. Shorter term cattle are still selling very well, and conditioned steers and heifers are wanted as are boner cows.
Heavy steers at 666kg made $1585, $2.28/kgLW and other steers, over 400kg, brought $1025-$1490, $2.20-$2.37/kgLW. Good yearling steers were $7000-$850, $3.00-$3.51 for the lighter with some at $2.28-$2.36/kgLW. Weaner steers brought $400-$492, $1.77-$3.21/kgLW. Good heifers weighing better than 400kg sold at $985-$1125, $2.31-$2.41/kgLW and 350-400kg lots fetched $830-$860, $2.28-$2.32/kgLW. Yearling heifers ranged from $485-$550, $2.36-$3.31/kgLW.
A pen of 166kg bulls made $520, $2.92/kgLW and solid older bulls $1160-$1190, $2.34-$2.69/kgLW. The boner cow market was strong with the heavier lots selling at $1040-$1160, $1.80-$2/kgLW and even the lower yielding cows brought $505-$735, $1.48-$1.79/kgLW. Weaner heifers made $400, $2.79/kgLW.
The sheep market was very small. The better lambs went to $114, a few ewes made $75 and ewes and lambs $59 all-counted.
There was a very strong market for boner cows and empty Friesian heifers at STRATFORD last Tuesday, Sandra Engelen of NZ Farmers Livestock reported.
Prime Angus/Friesian ox 725kg $2.11/kgLW, 2-year Jersey bulls 470kg $1.93/kgLW, empty Friesian heifers 335-530kg $1.45-$2.11/kgLW, empty Ayrshire-cross cows 610kg $1.56/kgLW, empty Friesian cows 442.5-467.5kg $1.46-$1.55/kgLW, empty crossbred cows 541.7kg $1.50/kgLW, empty Jersey-cross cows 325-435kg $1.10-$1.50/kgLW, store crossbred cows 416.7-450kg $1.50/kgLW.

Old timers cannot remember a smaller sale of sheep at MATAWHERO. The total yarding last Friday comprised 362 sheep but there was no lack of enthusiasm for all classes.
Prime sheep sold well with well covered ewes making $84-$88.50 and lighter $77-$80. The few prime lambs made value at $110-$115.50.
Just four larger and four small pens were occupied by store lambs. Condition was good with 40kgLW recorded. Solid ewe lambs brought $105 as did their male brothers, a second line of ewe lambs making $100. Freshly shorn ewe lambs traded at $91 and the lowest price on the day was $80. Store lambs numbered 157 head.
Ewes with lambs at foot numbered 107 and were offered in six lots, returning $63.50 all counted for two pens, the rest making $59.50, $55 and $53.
The entire sale took just 45 minutes to complete.
In spite of the fact that a decent sized yarding of 1563 head came to MATAWHERO last week, only quite a small bench followed the sale. There was plenty of competition from those that did attend and a very satisfactory sale resulted, especially the yearling section where very respectable CPK rates were achieved considering that quality was mixed and line-size small. Local farmers led the charge from a few outsiders.
In the older steer pens there were some well bred lines, and in good numbers but the softness and condition seen at the last fixture three weeks ago were missing. CPK rates dropped by around twenty cents/kgLW, $2.20-$2.45/kgLW covering the offering, but values remained fully firm throughout the sale and vendors were satisfied. A few R3 steers made $1080-$1190 and the better R2 steers traded at $1070-$1125. Medium steers made $900-$980 and smaller $760-$870. $735-$825 was needed to buy fair average yearling steers with many lots at $620-$640 and $580 for quite small. Many lines exceeded $3/kgLW.
R2 heifers were in demand especially those with condition, $870-$920 the higher prices, $2.11-$2.28/kgLW (estimated). $770-$810 secured good mediums and a nice line of quality Hereford/Friesian fetched $800, $2.35/kgLW. Useful yearling heifers topped at $645 with a high percentage of the entry making $500-$580, $2.63-$2.80/kgLW. A small offering of cows with calves returned $1025-$1045 and heifers with calves sold at $1055.
Beef-bred R1 bulls made $705-$845.
Yearling cattle featured at STORTFORD LODGE last week, both in numbers and price, although older steers and heifers also produced good returns. Many lots of yearling steers, mainly Angus or Angus-Hereford, broke the $3/kgLW mark, selling to $3.55/kgLW for 157kg sorts. Top lines, over 300kg, made $860-$957, $2.84-$3.00/kgLW, those just under 300kg making $775-$852, $3.01-$3.25/kgLW and under 200kg made $500-$630.
Yearling heifers followed the same trend. Only one pen of Hereford-Friesian made $3.10/kgLW, 203kg at $630. Other heifers over 200kg sold at $2.32-$2.98/kgLW, $605-$750 buying the best and $525-$550 the mediums, $2.32-$2.67/kgLW.
R3 steers carried some weight, the entire entry of 52 head tipping the scales at 542-601kg. The heaviest, at 601kg, made $1330, $2.21/kgLW while the rest fetched $1300-$1335, $2.26-$2.46/kgLW. The R2 steers were not especially heavy but CPK rates were right up there. The top sale was the $1455 paid for 605kg Angus-Hereford, $2.40/kgLW and any lots over 400kg realised $1000-$1137, $2.40-$2.53/kgLW. Only two lots sold at less than $1000. Meaty R2 heifers sold strongly. $915-$1060 bought lots over 400kg, $2.21-$2.38/kgLW, $845-$885 buying others, $2.10-$2.25/kgLW.
A consignment of Friesian yearling bulls returned $680-$710, $3.30-$3.51/kgLW while 304kg Angus bulls went at $890, $2.93/kgLW and some Hereford-cross $535-$590, $2.59-$2.77/kgLW. Buying strength came from Manawatu and across all of Hawke's Bay, Laurence Redshaw of LI Redshaw Ltd commented.
Store lamb buyers had a choice of 2500 head. There is still continuing interest in them and this showed when it came to the good grading medium weight lambs. Very heavy still reached $123.50 and $108-$118 was needed for those in the middle to late 30kg range. Only one or two pens failed to make $100. A handful of 2-tooth ewes SIL made $126 and ewes with lambs were $70-$83 for useful lots and down to $40 for light.
A good line up of cattle greeted the buying bench at the RONGOTEA sale last week, Malcolm Coombe of NZ Farmers Livestock said.

Yearling steers made $440-$540, $2.30-$2.70/kgLW and yearling bulls $600-$850, $2.30-$2.45/kgLW. Yearling heifers reached $500-$575, $2.45-$3.50, with dairy-cross yearling heifers making $400-$450 and autumn-born heifers $490-$600, $2.50-$3/kgLW.
A handful of autumn-born bulls weighing 90-110kg sold at $380-$410, $3.95-$4.15/kgLW.
Some in-milk cows made $800-$900 depending on quality. Boner cows were sought after, the heavy boner cows fetching $900-$1040, up to $1.76/kgLW. Medium cows made $600-$800.
A handful of ewes with lambs at foot made $80 all counted, mixed-sex lambs $90-$115 and mediums $60-$80.
The sale featured another good sized yarding of calves. Top Friesian bulls fetched $115-$130, a good number were in the $80-$100 range, mediums made $50-$80 and the smaller ones $40-$50.
Charolais-cross bulls sold at $230. The top whiteface bulls made $200, with a lot around the $170-$200 mark, smalls $80-$100.
The beef-cross heifer market was very strong with Charolais-cross heifers making $190-$225. Top whiteface heifers fetched $170-$180, mediums $140-$160 and small $100-$120.
200 calves were yarded at the DANNEVIRKE calf sales. The prices were similar to the previous week with some very good calves on offer to an extremely big buying bench. There were some exceptional Friesian bulls on offer that were a credit to the vendor, fetching $170. Other Friesian bulls made $140-$170, mediums $110-$135 and small $50-$90. Whiteface and beef bulls reached $160-$180, whiteface and beef heifers $130-$150.
There was another very good sale at FEILDING last Friday, with good quality cattle "selling themselves", Rhys Staples of Elders commented.
A small number of VIC cows sold for $980. Heavy 3-year Angus steers at 650kg made $1640, and lighter, 510kg, fetched $1450.
Two-year Angus steers at 620kg reached $2.45/kgLW, and 2-year Charolais steers 450kg $1155.

Prime lambs were also stronger by $2/head with the best of the prime ewes lifting $5/head. Prime steers were better by 2-3c/kg while all other categories of prime cattle held firm on the previous week, PGG Wrightson livestock manager Joe Higgins reported.
