Weekly Livestock update with Warren Johnston

Livestock sales this week have been fairly quiet, with numbers and price both struggling to gain positive ground at present. Regardless of categories, most processors are looking at 2 weeks plus to secure kill space but the market in general appears to have plateaued out at this point, and all in all rates for all descriptions, although they have eased, are still in very good territory compared to previous years .

Spring Bull sales are coming up for anyone looking for Herd improvers.

Next week will see a good run of Midlands bred Angus Heifers offered at QUOIBA Friday 11th August.

Clearing sales continue with Estate HW SMITH, Lower Barrington Thursday 10th August (Full details on our website or today’s Tas country) .
