Restockers were active on light weight steers and heifers. Restockers purchased light weight vealer steers from 189c to 196c and 172c to 180c/kg for their heifer counterparts.

Demand was best for restocking lambs and all weights of sheep, while trade and heavy weight lambs eased in the average to good quality yarding. The usual processors operated along with mainly local restocker inquiry and paid from equal to $3 more for light weight lambs, although trade and heavy weight lambs were $4/head cheaper. Most new season lambs are still unshorn and more are showing dryness in the skin. Sheep to processors were $5 to $10/head dearer and many were heavy and extra heavy weights in four and fi ve score condition. The light weight two score lambs made from $60 to $70 with restockers paying from $40 to $79/head. Light trade weight two and three score lambs sold between $76 and $83 with restockers from $62 to $84 and up to $92/head for those just into the trade weight category. Trade and heavy weight three score lambs sold from $76 to $103/head and averaged 364c/kg cwt. The heavy weight four score lambs averaged 393c/ kg cwt and were from $91 to $122, with an isolated extra heavy weight pen at $136/ head. The few pens of old trade weight lambs were from $55 to $66 with the heavy weights at $75 to $85/head.

Several prominent processors bid only sparingly and prices eased signifi cantly as a consequence. Restockers were active on selected consignments at prices above last week. Vealers were plentiful, restockers paid 157c to 200c/kg for steers to feed on. The C3 vealers to trade buyers eased up to 17c and sold from 160c to 200c, lightweight C3 heifers sold from 155c to 175c and heavyweights eased 7c and returned 150c to 190c/kg. A good selection of yearling steers eased 10c, they sold from 154c to 182c, restockers operated on yearling heifers and paid 125c to 147c and heavyweight C3 yearling heifers eased 15c to return 129c to 172c/kg. A large yarding of principally heavyweight grown steers failed to attract the sustained bidding of recent weeks, lightweight C3 steers eased 7c and sold from 148c to 178c and heavyweights eased 10c and returned 147c to 180c/kg. Grown heifers were scarce, despite this, prices eased 13c and they sold from 134c to 136c/kg. Manufacturing steers sold from 130c to 146c and one large draft of pastoral bred steers sold from 100c to 128c/kg lwt. The few bulls yarded returned vendors 138c to 142c/kg.

Restockers from Millicent, Penola and local areas were prominent and paid from $64 to $84/head. Lightweight three score lambs to trade buyers lifted $2, they sold from $78 to $92/head and averaged 402c/kg cwt. Light trade weight four scores remained unchanged to sell from $89 to $111/head and averaged 425c/kg cwt. Heavy trade weights lifted marginally to sell from $103 to $117/ head and averaged 424c/kg cwt. Heavyweights lifted $2 and sold from $115 to $142/head and returned 408 to 436c/kg cwt. The handful of sheep penned returned from $32 to $66/head. Solid competition by usual trade Cattle heifers lifted 7c and sold from 158c to 176c and heavy weights lifted 2c to return from 160c to 193c/kg. Yearling numbers were fewer, with the C3 steers easing 4c and making from 158c to 175c, while the heifers remained unchanged and sold from 148c to 155c/kg. Grown steers lacked the quality of the previous week, easing by up to 10c and selling from 160c to 185c, while manufacturing steers sold at 146c/kg. A small yarding of good quality cows sold to solid processor competition. The D3 cows eased a marginal 3c and sold from 126 to 135c, while a good selection of heavy weight bulls returned vendors from 135c to 155c/ kg. Heavy weight hoggets sold from $50 to $80/head. Medium weight two and three score sheep sold from $40 to $52 with longer wool Merino ewes to $57/head. Heavy three to fi ve score sheep mainly ranged from $42 to $66 with restockers paying from $65 to $84.50/ head. A run of two to four score sheep averaged 185c while the fi ve scores were at 150c/ kg cwt. Heavy weight rams continue to attracted dull inquiry and made from $10 to $23/head. Numbers increase Sheep HAMILTON 34421 (+6811) A GOOD to very good quality offering of trade and heavy weight lambs together with a vast penning of store conditioned light weights were in the increased yarding on Wednesday. The regular fi eld of seasonal buyers attended and operated although one supermarket buyer was not in attendance. Restockers came from a wider area though not all operated fully. Demand for most lambs opened $3 to $5 higher then eased, but rallied again to fi nish unchanged for the larger penning of heavy and extra heavy weight lambs. Trade weights averaged $4 higher, while lighter trade and restocking lambs were $2 to $3/head better overall. Light weight lambs sold $5/head cheaper. Cattle supply lifts Cattle NARACOORTE 2606 (+1168) SUPPLY lifted causing downward pressure on prices at Tuesday’s sale. This was despite the mainly good quality yarding, with most in 3 to 4 score condition. One less exporter operated on the offering that contained more weight and older cattle. The yarding comprised of 2465 head sold by live weight and 141 head by open auction. Vealers were in short supply but still managed to record the biggest losses, down 20c/kg. The C muscled grades made from 145c to 190c, with odd sales to 210c/kg. Restockers paid from 159c to 165c/kg for vealer steer replacements. Yearlings were 10c to 15c/kg cheaper with heifers most affected. The C muscled grades made from 135c to 175c for most with the best steers topping at 202c and restockers going to 188c for steers and 155c/kg for their heifer replacements. More four score cattle were added to this weeks yarding and they were generally 5c to 15c/kg lower than the three score prices. More weight and increased numbers of grown steers came forward, including a large consignment of over 140 head from the one vendor. Prices were 10c lower for the C3 heavy steer category and on average 5c cheaper for the C4 bullocks, though some sales were as low as 15c/kg behind last weeks prices. One less exporter was in attendance, however did not help prices, with most from 152c to 178c for most C3 and C4 grades with an odd sale or two up to 186c/kg.
